PPL Park will host an international friendly between Ghana and Chile on Feb 29, in a match showing two teams that played in the 2010 World Cup. Ticket prices range from $40 to $150. It’s the first match between two international teams at PPL Park that doesn’t feature a U.S. national team. The 29th is an international fixture date, which means professional clubs are likely to release their players for the game, so rosters could include such stars as Barcelona’s Alexis Sanchez and Michael Essien of Chelsea.
