The game also counts as the bonus ticket included in the FC Dallas season ticket package for all 2014 season ticket holders.

Road to Brazil, organized by Soccer United Marketing, MLS' commercial arm, will be played at five MLS venues - D.C. United's RFK Stadium, Houston Dynamo's BBVA Compass Stadium, Philadelphia Union's PPL Park, FC Dallas' Toyota Stadium and New York Red Bulls' Red Bull Arena.

Ten countries will participate in the Road to Brazil series of matches, representing four continents - Europe, Africa, North America and South America. World Cup-bound teams include the following: from Europe, defending champion Spain, Bosnia and Herzegovina and Greece; representing Africa are the African Cup of Nations champion Nigeria and powerhouse Ivory Coast; and Honduras from CONCACAF. The national teams of Bolivia, El Salvador, Israel and Turkey will also participate.

So who is excited about this news? I have to admit, I'm pretty pumped to see the Ivory Coast here in town play.
