U.S. Kickoff Times Unchanged

While all of the U.S. venues were changed from what was originally announced, the kickoff times stayed the same, meaning fans can log on to ussoccer.com's MatchTracker to follow the games on:

March 5 vs. China at 8:45 a.m. ET.
March 7 vs. Italy at 8:45 a.m. ET.
March 10 vs. Norway at 10 a.m. ET.

Seems that the games were moved due to television. Four of the eight TV matches will be at the Stadium Algarve, which is cabled for TV after having hosted matches at the 2004 European Championships, with the last four TV games in Vila Real de San Antonio, a nice little stadium that will host the third-place and championship. For a complete updated schedule, check ussoccer.com.

Thanks for posting the times of the games. Can you please tell us if there is any way that we can stream the games in the internet? maybe sopcast or some other way?

Um, unless we are playing in the middle of the night these times cannot be right. If the game is 8:45am est, the game is in portugal at 2:30 am???

Does anyone have any idea as to who may have TV broadcast rights? Eurosport's not carrying it this year b/c they don't have the rights.

And thank you for the heads up about the times/venues.
