via Basque Soccer Friendly blog
The Basque Soccer Friendly LLC is a partnership between the two non-profit organizations of the Basque Studies Foundation and the Idaho Youth Soccer Association. Together they are working to bring a unique community event to Boise, Idaho and create greater awareness for both organizations while raising money for Basque Studies and soccer scholarships.
The Basque Soccer Friendly 2015 will feature one of Spain’s La Liga premier teams from the Basque Autonomous Community and a Liga MX team from Mexico for an international friendly soccer match in Albertsons Stadium on the campus of Boise State University on Wednesday, July 29, 2015.
The Basque Soccer Friendly 2015 will be during the week of Jaialdi, which is a large Basque cultural festival held in Boise every five years that attracts over 40,000 Basques and non-Basques from throughout the United States and Europe.
All proceeds from the Basque Soccer Friendly will be for the Basque Studies Foundation to support scholarships and Basque Studies programming at Boise State University and soccer scholarships for Idaho youth provided by the Idaho Youth Soccer Association.
