Chivas USA announces Veracruz, New Zealand friendlies

Chivas USA has confirmed the dates of two friendly matches as part of a charity tournament to benefit victims of the recent storms which devastated Mexico.

The MLS club will take part in the event alongside Liga MX sides Queretaro FC and CD Tiburones Rojos de Veracruz, Alianza FC of El Salvador, USL PDL club Los Angeles Misioneros, the New Zealand national team and another club to be determined.

Chivas have dates with Veracruz and the All Whites on October 9 at Citrus College in Glendora, California, and on October 12 as part of a quadruple-header at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum.

“It's nice to be part of any type of relief fund to help somebody out,” Chivas USA captain and goalkeeper Dan Kennedy said in a statement.

“And it’s based around a game that we all love and play for a living and we’ll get to see an opponent that we don’t see often, so it should be a good challenge for a good cause.”
