El Salvador National Soccer Team TicketsSoccer has deep roots in El Salvador, and love for the beautiful game reaches far back into its history. However, it was only in 1935 that the Central American country was able to establish its own national football association. Just three years after that, the national team was able to formally affiliate itself with FIFA and enter onto the world stage. Since then, the team has been involved in many international tournaments and consistently made a respectable showing, even making it all the way to the World Cup on two separate occasions. The team has even managed to win two gold medals in Central American and Caribbean Games. "La Selecta," as the team has been nicknamed by its supporters, is among the top 70 in the FIFA World Rankings. However, they are working hard to improve their world standing. The El Salvadorian National Soccer Team retains a passionate, adoring and dedicated fan base that follows it to all of its international games. You can become a part of the excitement as well.
