Borussia Dortmund To Tour USA This Summer

Borussia Dortmund will travel to the United States twice in the summer, once at the end of the season and once for their pre-season summer tour.

The Bundesliga club will play expansion club Los Angeles FC and will “most probably play two matches” in the International Champions Cup.

Dortmund are home to USA star Christian Pulisic, and the German side are taking full advantage of the best American player playing today.

Pulisic and Dortmund will play Los Angeles FC at the Banc of California Stadium on May 21 or 22, which with it’s steep standing terraces has partially been inspired by Dortmund’s Westfalenstadion.

The games could be an opportunity for fans to watch United States star Christian Pulisic, who came through the ranks of BVB’s youth academy, having previously joined the club as a 16-year-old in early 2015. A year later, he was promoted to the senior team for whom he has since played in 79 competitive matches, scoring 11 goals and setting up a further 14.

“We hope, and also believe there are positive indications, that the people in the USA are also excited at the prospect of receiving their first visit from BVB, including the entire first team and Christian Pulisic, the U.S. Footballer of the Year,” Borussia director for sales & marketing Carsten Cramer said in quotes on the club’s official website.

Cramer added Dortmund were “extremely delighted” to receive a third consecutive invitation to the ICC, saying that the “increasing presence” in it “underlines how important Borussia Dortmund has become on a sporting level.”

Dortmund are expected to set up their preseason training base in Chicago and Pittsburgh. Bayern Munich and Manchester City are reported to be the two teams Borussia Dortmund could face in July.
