[ARGENTINA] After Mexico and Brazil, Argentina’s national team is setting up shop in the United States.

The Argentine soccer federation reached an agreement with CMN to organize a friendly game involving the Albicelestes in the United States after the World Cup.

The partnership agreement extends through June 2014 and includes the AFA’s broadcast, marketing and sponsorship rights in the USA and gives CMN the right to organize games in Italy, Germany and Spain.

“The Argentine Football Association is without a doubt one of the most recognized and accomplished football
organizations in the world,” said Henry Cardenas, Chief Executive Officer of CMN. “With the World Cup
nearing and a great depth of promising young players led by Lionel Messi, arguably the best player in the
world, this is an exciting time for Argentina."

The first game will take place during one of the four international fixture dates this year after the World Cup.
