Manchester City and Bolton Announce North America Tour Dates

 Manchester City and Bolton Announce North America Tour Dates

After being overlooked for so many summers, the United States will have several Premier League clubs coming to North America in July. In addition to Manchester United confirming a tour of North America and Tottenham Hotspur playing a couple of friendlies, Manchester City today announced additional tour dates, while Bolton Wanderers today announced a three-game tour of North America.

Manchester City today added a game against Club America to be played in Atlanta. And Steven Goff’s Soccer Insider column is reporting that an announcement will be made Monday that Manchester City will play against Inter Milan in Baltimore. That would be a mouthwatering tie that would feature Roberto Mancini against Jose Mourinho (we hope).

Here are all of the dates to remember for the Man City tour:

  • Sporting Lisbon and Red Bull New York v Manchester City, July 22-25, Harrison, NJ
  • Club America v Manchester City, July 28, Georgia Dome, Atlanta, GA
  • Inter Milan v Manchester City, July 31, M&T Stadium, Baltimore (tentative)

Bolton Wanderers manager Owen Coyle, who is no stranger to having his team play friendlies in the States after Burnley came over last summer, will be pitting his team against the following opponents:

  • Charlotte Eagles v Bolton, July 14
  • Charleston Battery v Bolton, July 17
  • Toronto FC v Bolton, July 21

    That is pretty cool that Bolton is playing some tier 2 teams.

    • Patrick says:

      Yea it is, I’m particularly excited because I live in Charlotte. I’m pretty happy about the EPL’s willingness to actually play some games in the South East

    • evan says:

      I agree. Charlotte Eagles are actually from the 3rd tier so maybe with Bolton coming it could raise their average attendance of only 900 per game.

  2. SMOOTH says:

    This sucks I was looking forward for EPL teams to come play at Cowboys Stadium like Chelsea did last summer.
