If World Cup madness has left you wishing that America would get with the program and offer more in the way of live, quality soccer, two local organizations have partnered to reach that goal. Santa Barbara Soccer Entertainment and 11 Sports Marketing are joining forces to bring big-time soccer events to Santa Barbara, the first of which will take place on Wednesday, July 12, at UCSB’s Harder Stadium. The game — part of the third round of the 2006 U.S. Open Cup — will pit Chivas U.S.A. against either Miami FC or Roma FC, depending on who lasts in the single-elimination tourney. Best of all, kick-off is at 7 p.m. Score! Tickets go on sale Friday, June 30. Call 965-1128, or local Tri-County soccer shops and the Arlington box office.
