Glendale is the center of the North American soccer universe Thursday night with two Gold Cup quarterfinal matches.

First at 4:30 p.m., Jamaica and Canada will square off.

Then at 7:30 p.m., Mexico will face Honduras.

Mexico's national soccer team routinely draws huge crowds in the United States, and Thursday will be no exception.

If you're headed out to the stadium, you may want to plan to arrive early. Plenty of fans will be tailgating in the parking lot and tickets are good for both games.

TRAFFIC: Real-time traffic

While the early game won't see much of a crowd, traffic could be tied up by fans headed to see El Tri in an important competition.

The winners will play each other Sunday night at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, California.

The United States advanced to the semifinals Wednesday night with a win over El Salvador. They face Costa Rica in Arlington, Texas Saturday night.
