Rio Tinto officially sold out for June 18 WCQ pitting United States against Honduras

Kyle Beckerman waits patiently for Jurgen Klinsmann to answer his question: "Can we have a qualifier at Rio Tinto? I promise it will sell out." - USA TODAY Sports

US Soccer has annouced that, as expected, Rio Tinto Stadium is sold out for the June 18 World Cup Qualifier against Honduras.

Rio Tinto Stadium, home of Real Salt Lake, sold out a record nine times in 2012; the two home matches in 2013 have both sold out.

In a US Soccer press release, U.S. Men's National Team coach Jurgen Klinsmann said he expected "fantastic" support in Salt Lake City.

"We are really excited that Rio Tinto Stadium is sold out for the qualifier against Honduras," Klinsmann said in the release. "Our main priority in selecting the venues for these important games was to make sure we had great crowd support, and having the game sell out so quickly proves that the fans in Salt Lake are going to be there for us."

The U.S. men have played at Rio Tinto once before — a 2-1 qualifying win over El Salvador on Sept. 5, 2009 — and played once at former RSL home Rice Eccles Stadium.

In classic American fashion, tickets to an "all-you-can-eat" tailgate will also be available.
