Tucson, AZ - Today, FC Tucson officially revealed the Inaugural FC Tucson 4th of July Blast Presented by CenturyLink. The fireworks show will follow FC Tucson's match against Albuquerque Sol FC on Friday, July 4. The match will kick off at 7:30 p.m. with the fireworks scheduled to begin roughly 30 minutes after game concludes.

"We want this to be the biggest, loudest and most electric crowd we've ever had at an FC Tucson match," said the FC Tucson ownership group in a joint statement. "We expect to set a club record for the highest attendance in our young history and then we want to celebrate the world's greatest sport in a World Cup year with a spectacular display during the match and the afterward. FC Tucson would like to thank CenturyLink for stepping up to help us make this first year of a new tradition possible. This will be an amazing celebration."

"We at CenturyLink are extremely excited to partner with FC Tucson for this year's 4th of July Blast," said Century Link VP and GM for Greater Arizona Guy Gunther.
