A planned exhibition soccer game between Jamaica and Kenya has been canceled because of poor ticket sales.

Samuel Sampson, a spokesman for Singapore-based promoter Ricky Swen and his company, Swen Labels International, says only 120 tickets were sold for the match, which had been scheduled for Saturday at the 40,000-seat Rentschler Field.

It's the second time this summer Swen has canceled an exhibition at the stadium. A planned July 28 match between Liberia and Jamaica was called off after Swen failed to secure agreements from both teams and the U.S. Soccer Federation.

Kenya was brought in as a replacement and the match rescheduled.

Sampson says his group is still talking to both teams to see if they can reschedule the match for another date.
