Mexico-Belize tickets on sale Monday

Tickets for the June 15 World Cup qualifying match between Belize and Mexico at Reliant Stadium will go on sale at 10 a.m. Monday.

The David and Goliath-style meeting — Mexico is ranked 16th in the world and first in CONCACAF; Belize is 171st and 26th, respectively — will mark the first time a World Cup qualifier is played in Houston.

Tickets will range from $30-$75 and will be available at Ticketmaster outlets, over the phone at 713-629-3700, online at , and the Reliant Stadium box office.

The match will be Belize's home leg in a two-game, aggregate-scoring series. The Central Americans are playing out of the country because they lack the proper infrastructure to host a FIFA-sanctioned match.

Belize reached the second round of qualifiers after a 4-2 win in aggregate over St. Kitts and Nevis; Mexico enjoyed a first-round bye.
