Chivas, America to play friendly in Kansas City

Chivas de Guadalajara and Club America will renew their hostilities on American soil once again.

The two famed Mexican clubs will play a friendly at Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City on Sept. 16, Mexican Independence Day.

The longtime and hated rivals will play their regular-season Apertura 2009 match on Oct. 24.

Chivas and America last played in the U.S. in January when the two teams tied 1-1 in an InterLiga match in Houston.
