2012 Desert Diamond Cup Teams Announced

Action from the 2011 Desert Cup at Hi Corbett

While I'm clearly wildly biased as the sort of person who actively seeks out opportunities to watch Major League Soccer matches on television on a regular basis, I'm very excited for the 2012 Desert Diamond Cup (renamed due to new casino-based sponsorship) coming to Kino Stadium February 22 through March 3. The expanded event was announced in September, and now there are teams attached: one of last year's participants, Red Bull New York and three newcomers to Tucson, the New England Revolution, Real Salt Lake, and the current MLS champions, the LA Galaxy. Two other teams will hold some of their spring training here, but will not participate in the tournament itself. Great news for local soccer fans, for sure, and even better news for me, since I enjoy heckling LA Galaxy star, Landon Donovan.
