    The Mexican National Team has sold out a soccer match at Cowboys Stadium for a third consecutive time.

    Mexico, who is playing their third game at state-of-the-art stadium since 2009, will face Brazil on Sunday just three days after playing Bosnia-Herzegovina at Soldier Field in Chicago.

    While the match is sold out, tickets are still available on the secondary market ranging from $170 and up for really good seats to $83 for nose-bleeders, according to SeatGeek.com. Of course, standing room only tickets are also available for as low as $59.

    The strong market for tickets shows not only an interest in El Tri, but in Cowboys Stadium as well.  On the Mexican National Team's 2012 tour, the average ticket price for games in New Jersey, Miami and Houston didn't even break $100.

    With at least 80,000 attending the game, fans are urged to arrive early and avoid traffic -- and to take part in Fútbol Fiesta, a 120,000 square-feet interactive soccer fan zone that will open four hours before kickoff that features live entertainment, sponsor exhibits, celebrities and interactive games for the entire family.  

    The game vs. Brazil will close-out Mexico’s 2012 five-game U.S. Tour. Don't forget your vuvuzela.
