Everton Announces Preseason Tour of America

The Toffees are coming to America!

Everton is the third Premier League club to announce preseason friendlies in America. The Merseyside club will play Real Salt Lake on Saturday, July 21, according to the Liverpool Echo newspaper.

Everton also plans on playing one more friendly in the States, which will be announced shortly.

Everton will be joining Chelsea and Aston Villa on their American tours. Chelsea will play three matches in California (versus Club America at Stanford, Suwon Bluewings in Los Angeles, and LA Galaxy, also in Los Angeles). Aston Villa, meanwhile, play Columbus Crew (and play Toronto FC in Canada). All matches will be played in July.

Everton’s match against Real Salt Lake will be played the same night as Chelsea against the LA Galaxy in David Beckham’s debut match.

  1. Aston Villa versus the Crew maybe a good occasion for a road trip and some EPL talk/ Major League Soccer talk interviews! Last year the Crew played Everton and it was a match actually played at a pretty high level for a friendly. I think Moyes was feeling some pressure after a poor 2005/06 season and the Crew were making a playoff push so both teams used the friendly to really focus on their squads rather than just for show as many of these matches turn out to be. The match ended in a 1-1 draw because James Beattie was so awful for Everton and I think that may have convinced Moyes to use just one striker (Andy Johnson) when they returned to England.

  2. The unconfirmed friendly for Everton is against Monterrey (Mexican team) on the 29th of July in Santa Barbara, California.As of yet still unconfirmed, but inside source, told me a couple of weeks ago about both games, of which Real Salt Lake has now been confirmed. California here we come!!!

  3. The Columbus Crew v Everton Toffees kickabout was a classic, aye.

    Is the game v Real Salt Lake being played on a Utah pitch with college gridiron markings to make the Blue Boys dizzy & high bouncing ball on articial turf to make a monkey of Yobo & co?

    Really great prep for the upcoming season..
