Basque Soccer Friendly

July 23, 2015  •  Leave a Comment

A few of my favorites from last weekends Basque Soccer Friendly held in Boise at Albertsons Stadium. The soccer friendly featured La Liga's Athletic Club de Bilbao and Liga MX's Club Tijuana Xoloitzxuintles de Caliente. It was a blast shooting the event, and I have to say it was a little weird walking around Albertsons Stadium and walking on real grass!

The night ended up being a lot of fun and I made a few really good images. The event served as a brief primer for the upcoming high school and college soccer season which is just a month or so away.
