[SUPERLIGA] Could there be SuperLiga soccer at Boston’s famed Fenway Park this summer?  Along with six dates in July set aside for group play, three venues were announced on Wednesday, with a fourth left unspecified. Toyota Park (Bridgeview, Ill.), Robertson Stadium (Houston) and Home Depot Center (Carson, Calif.) will be utilized, along with “Venue TBD – Boston/Foxborough, MA.”

The latter is the location of Gillette Stadium, the former could be Fenway, which is one of three possible venues for an exhibition matchup of Glasgow rivals Celtic and Rangers July 21. The Boston/Foxborough dates of July 14 and July 20 fit snugly into the same time frame, during which the Red Sox will be on the road.

The four Mexican representatives have yet to be determined, and won’t be known until the Bicentenario playoffs, which get underway this weekend, are completed. Representing MLS will be Chicago, Houston, Chivas USA, and New England, which are the teams with the four highest point totals from last season not competing in the 2010-2011 Concacaf Champions’ League. Once the four Mexican teams are determined, two of them will be matched with a pair of MLS teams in each group.

The Revs are the only MLS team to win the competition; they defeated Houston at Gillette on penalty kicks to win the 2008 edition. Other past winners are Pachuca (2007) and UNAL, better known by its nickname Tigres (2009). Pachuca beat the Galaxy at Home Depot Center and Tigres prevailed against the Fire at Toyota Park last year.

Venues and dates for the semifinals and finals, to be played in August, will be confirmed once the four semifinalists are determined by group play. The top two teams in each group advance to the semis. All matches will be televised live on TeleFutra.
