How Many Days Until Premier League Action Returns?

 How Many Days Until Premier League Action Returns?

We wake up this morning to the reality that the 2010 World Cup is over. Four years is a long time to wait until the 2014 World Cup in Brazil. But fortunately there is plenty of soccer in store for us in the coming days to weeks. Specifically:

  • Bolton Wanderers begins their U.S. tour against Charlotte in: 2 days
  • Manchester United plays Celtic in Toronto: 4 days
  • Tottenham Hotspur plays San Jose Earthquakes in: 5 days
  • Manchester City plays their first friendly of the summer against Portland Timbers in: 5 days
  • Number of days until the Community Shield is played between Chelsea and Man United: 27 days
  • 2010-11 Premier League season kicks off in: 33 days
  • Number of days until the next World Cup: 1,432

Hats off to the Premier League clubs who were smart enough to predict a healthy appetite in the US for soccer this summer especially after a successful tournament and a great run by the United States men’s national team. With perfect timing, we’ll be able to see four Premier League clubs begin their summer preseason friendlies this week in the United States. And many of the games will be on television. So for those of you who are wondering what to do with your free time now that the World Cup is over, be sure to set your DVR to record the following games featuring Premier League clubs being shown on US television.

    I am headed to the Man City-Club America game in Atlanta. Had a lot of fun at the Milan-America game in Atlanta last year. The vuvuzelas were out in that game and I am sure they will be out in bigger force this year which I am looking forward to!

    I am going to the Bolton/Charlotte game and the Man city/Club America in the Georgia dome… Already got my tickets!!!

  5. Marc says:

    I have been ridiculed on this site before by supporting the green & gold campaign. I will not be attending any of the Man United American tour matches for obvious reasons. I have to do what I feel is right.

    You think guys that soccer season is too long? I mean training camp already started! I think the EPL should have a winter break, playing soccer in december and january is just plain stupid.

    What to do with the DVR now the World Cup is over? Well, the Tour de France is still going on… and is in the early portion of its second week. It was off to a wickedly chaotic start and now is settling in. And may be a rare time when a person from Luxembourg wins a prestigious event.

    By the end of The Tour, a little breathing time and then onto the EPL in ’10/’11.

    You left off Pompey’s tour of San Diego, Edmonton, and Washington DC!

    Oh yeah, we were relegated. I guess I need to go over to the other site.
