Friendly Competition

Hot on the heels of the World Cup (surely you heard a little something about the biggest and best sporting competition in the world?), local fans of the sport, both new and old, are going to get a special treat. Several international superstars who participated in the Cup, including faves Samuel Eto'o and Diego Milito, will be joining their club team, Inter Milan, stateside in preparation for their upcoming season. The 2009-2010 Treble-winning team (yeah, that's three cups under their belts) will stop by Pizza Hut Park (6000 Main St. in Frisco) for an international friendly with our very own FC Dallas. Cheer on your hometown boys FC Dallas as they take on Inter Milan at 8 p.m. Thursday. Tickets are $65 to $250. Call 888-FCD-GOAL or visit
Thu., Aug. 5, 8 p.m., 2010
