On Wednesday, March 22, Villanova University is presenting a free screening of the prize-winning documentary film, Club Frontera. The film explores the Club Tijuana Xoloitzcuintles soccer team, its fan culture, and its relationship to the city of Tijuana, Mexico. Following the film, there will be a discussion with the director, Chris Cashman.
Club Tijuana is currently managed by former Mexico head man Miguel Herrera, and is the club that sent American international Greg Garza out on loan to new MLS franchise Atlanta United.
The film will be presented at the Connelly Center Cinema on March 22 at 6pm, with the discussion beginning after the screening. An interactive map of the Villanova campus can be found here.
