The Spanish national soccer team is preparing to play for the first time in South Florida.

The squad, often referred to as La Roja, has a game against Haiti on Saturday at 4 p.m. at Sun Life Stadium. This is the first time the team will play Haiti, according to a press release.

Spain is not only the reigning World Cup champion, but it is also the 2008 and 2012 Euro champion.

Tickets are $29 and a limited number of VIP field seats will be available to watch the match from the sidelines.

One dollar per ticket will go toward Project Phoenix to help build a national team stadium in the Haitian neighborhood of Cite Soleil.

Fans who purchase tickets will also gain access to both teams' practices the day before the game, according to the release.

In addition, all proceeds from a specifically designed jersey sold at the stadium will go directly to Haiti's development efforts.

Tickets can purchased at www.sunlifestadium.com or by calling the stadium box office at 305-943-8000.
