Everton Adds US Tour To Preseason Schedule
Everton will be playing two friendlies in the United States this summer. According to ToffeeWeb, the club is rumored to be playing against Chicago Fire on July 30th and Colorado Rapids on August 3rd.
Last July, Everton played a friendly against Real Salt Lake and trained at the Home Depot Center outside Los Angeles, California.
This summer’s tour to the United States will be Everton’s fourth visit in five years.
Everton is one of two Premier League clubs touring North America this summer. Yesterday, West Ham United announced they have arranged a friendly against Columbus Crew this July as well as being scheduled to play against the MLS All-Star Team in Toronto, also in July.
The only other Premier League team that is rumored to be touring the United States this summer that hasn’t announced dates yet is Liverpool FC.
Editor’s note: After this article was published, Everton confirmed the news on their web site — so we now know that both fixtures against MLS sides are certain.
