This weekend is another big one across the United States for preseason friendlies featuring Premier League clubs. Today, Manchester United plays Chicago in front of a sold-out crowd of 62,500 at Soldier Field. Newcastle United plays Orlando City at the cavernous Citrus Bowl in Florida. DC United hosts Everton at RFK Stadium. And then tomorrow, Manchester City face LA Galaxy at The Home Depot Center in the last game of their North American tour.

If you’re planning on going to any of the games, let us know which one in the comments section below. And if you’d like to meet other EPL Talk readers before the game for a drink, etcetera, let them know in the comments.

Also, if you’re interested in snapping photos from any of the games, or writing a first-person account of your experiences, please e-mail me at thegaffer[at]epltalk[dot]com
