Chelsea and Manchester City will play two friendlies in the US between the end of the Premier League season and the international games in early June. Those games will be played in St. Louis and New York (Yankee Stadium).
Tickets for the Manchester City against Chelsea friendly to be played in St Louis on May 23 sold out within minutes of going on sale today, reports the St Louis Post-Dispatch.
“I think if we had a 100,000-seat stadium, we could have sold it out,” said Vicki Bryant, vice president of event services and merchandising for the Cardinals. “We expected it to sell out, but I don’t think we expected it to sell out in minutes. Quite frankly, we’re blown away by the demand. This is the kind of demand you would get for Game 7 of the World Series.”
Unlike when teams tour in the summer and players are just getting fit, these matches should include the full squads of City and Chelsea. That means Mata, Hazard, Tour, Oscar, Tevez and Silva should all playing.
