  1. What about the games on ESPN ? they will broadcast almos all the games of the World Football Challenge and probably the most interesting friendly game of the summer (Barcelona vs Manchester United)

    1. DMC, as far as I know, ESPN haven’t publicly announced that they’ll be televising the games although I’m quite sure they’ll be showing many of them.

      Cheers,
      The Gaffer

  2. Glad they will be playing the Aston Villa games here in the states! I can watch it before I go into the office that Wednesday…a bit funny.
