On the Downloads page of the APBA website this morning, APBA has released a free download of APBA Soccer cards for the two finalists competing in the 2014 MLS Cup. The real-life version of the MLS Cup will be held this weekend in Los Angeles.
With these cards, APBA Soccer fans can “pre-play” the final.
The match features MLS MVP Finalists Robbie Keane of the LA Galaxy and Lee Nguyen of the New England Revolution. To add to the drama, US National Team star (arguably the greatest American soccer player ever) and LA Galaxy attacking midfielder Landon Donovan has announced that this will be the final match of his illustrious career.
This isn’t the first time that APBA has offered free soccer cards to pre-play a championship match. In 2012, APBA released pre-play cards for the UEFA Champions League final, as well as the 2012 Women’s World Cup final. Both free downloads were well-received by the community.
Though I was rooting for a Sounders/Red Bulls final so that I could see my favorite team play against my favorite player for the title, you can bet I’ll be pre-playing the Galaxy/Revs match with these cards. I’ll let you know how it goes!
