Mexico vs. Iceland Tonight

CCCP press release, emphasis added: "Bank of America Stadium: Wednesday March 24th, 2010 @ 8:00pm: International Soccer Match (Mexico vs. Iceland): a pre-game festival is scheduled to begin at 4:00pm in front of Bank of America stadium on Mint Street. Attendance estimates for the festival are 15 to 20 thousand. The actual match begins at 8:00pm.
According to organizers tailgating should begin hours earlier (possibly as early as 9/10AM). 65,000 tickets were sold as of March 12th and it is expected that the game will be a sell out by the 24th. This is just a notice that traffic during rush hour will most likely be very heavy.
This is an exciting international event…but we want to put commuters on alert for traffic."
Remember that Stadium Parking rules are in effect.  For information on how to get parking passes, see this post.
