This is your chance to watch El Clásico without draining your bank account

On July 29, Barcelona and Real Madrid will clash in Miami's Hard Rock Stadium for one of soccer's greatest rivalries: El Clásico. Tickets to the highly anticipated event have been on sale for months, but the prices have been—to put it lightly—insanely, ridiculously, Mount Everest high. Upper deck seats were going for more than $500 and if you wanted a vantage point that wouldn't make the players look like insects, you were going to pay in the thousands. 

Needless to say, many of Miami's diehard fans were a bit disappointed that the match was so far above their collective budgets. But this on Friday, July 28, folks will have a chance to see these two futbol greats take the field for a significantly cheaper price. For $20–$30, you can buy a ticket to watch Madrid and Barcelona hold open practices this Friday from 6–8pm. 

It'll be a good (and cheap) chance to watch some of the biggest stars in the sport—Messi, Neymar, Luis Suarez and, hopefully, Cristiano Ronaldo will all be in attendance. 

Tickets go on sale to the public at 1pm today via
