Which Premier League Clubs May Visit New York This Summer?

 Which Premier League Clubs May Visit New York This Summer?

One or more Premier League clubs may play in a friendly soccer tournament in New York City this summer according to a report from a northeast England newspaper.

The English clubs that are being seriously considered are Fulham, Everton, Bolton Wanderers and Newcastle United, who celebrated promotion back to the Premier League Monday night. In addition to the English teams, clubs such as Juventus, Napoli, Galatasaray, Fenerbache, Sporting Lisbon, Porto and Atletico Madrid are also being considered.

While the teams competing are yet to be decided, what we do know is that the tournament will likely be named the New York Football Challenge and that one team that will be playing for certainĀ is Red Bull New York. Plus, all games will be played at the beautiful new Red Bull Arena.

Four teams will compete in a semi-final tournament with the two winners meeting in the final and presumably the two losers playing in a third-place consolation match.

In addition to the prospect of Fulham, Everton, Bolton or Newcastle United heading over to the States this summer, we can also look forward to Manchester United, Tottenham Hotspur and possibly Manchester City coming to America in late July-early August.
