Newcastle United May Tour United States This Summer
Newcastle United may return to the United States this summer for another series of friendlies against American teams.
“We’re looking at various scenarios,” said Newcastle manager Alan Pardew. “Obviously, we had the disappointment of South Africa getting canceled on us last year.vThat’s a process we don’t want to repeat. We got really let down in pre-season last year. We don’t want to put ourselves in that situation again.”
The United States is the most likely option, according to The Shields Gazette newspaper.
Newcastle United last toured the United States during the summer of 2011 when they played against Orlando City, Sporting Kansas City and Columbus Crew.
Meanwhile, Manchester City and Chelsea look likely to tour the United States this summer.
