Chelsea to Play Celtic at Yankee Stadium This Summer; Blues to Also Play In Philadelphia

yankee stadium Chelsea to Play Celtic at Yankee Stadium This Summer; Blues to Also Play In Philadelphia

More details have been revealed regarding Chelsea’s tour of the United States this July.

In addition to what we already know about the Chelsea summer tour, we now know that Chelsea will play Glasgow Celtic at Yankee Stadium in New York, according to ESPNsoccernet. Plus, Philadelphia has been added to Chelsea’s tour schedule. The Blues will now visit:

  • Seattle,
  • Washington DC,
  • Philadelphia, and
  • New York.

No dates have been announced as of press time.

Playing at Yankee Stadium in New York will certainly be a great photo opportunity for Chelsea, but how practical do you think it will be for Chelsea to play in a baseball stadium? Celtic played at Fenway Park against Sporting in 2010, where large crowds cheered on both teams.

Also, if you’re planning on going to see Chelsea play in any of the cities above, let us know in the comments section below.

Thanks to EPL Talk reader CTBlues for the news tip.
