Newcastle United May Tour United States This Summer

newcastle united 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.

If Newcastle United does decide to tour the USA this summer, which cities do you think they should include on their tour? Let us know in the comments section below.

    My idea would be for a team like Newcastle to tour non-MLS cities. It would be a good way to judge future expansion spots.

  2. buddy k says:

    HOUSTON or DALLAS! Please make this happen!

    • AJ says:

      I was about to post the exact same thing. Seeing my Magpies without even having to leave Texas would be amazing!!!

    • john r says:

      agreed completely. would love houston, but i think we are already lining up stoke and we wont get two friendlies.

  4. Barry says:

    PLEASE at least play a game in Nashville, Tennessee!! I’d be over the moon!

  5. Mufc77 says:

    Lots of Toon fans in NYC. I might even go watch them myself if they played a decent opponent

  6. AtlantaPompey says:

    Pick a Mexican club and play them in Atlanta. Guaranteed to get a large crowd.



  8. alteich says:

    Chicago. I will go anywhere in the midwest to see them.

  9. Jon says:

    I’ll drive the two to three hours if they went to Boston Connecticut Montreal.

  10. sayyed says:

    San Francisco or anywhere in the bay area

  11. jake says:

    Chicago! or any midwest city

  12. dcmagpie says:

    Washington DC. Had to drive out to ohio to see us beat columbus. Great trip, would prefer DC or closer.

  13. Philswin08 says:

    I would say Philly but last summer we were fortunate enough to see Chelsea,Aston Villa,Real Madrid and Celtic come through our fair city. So I’m thinking we might get passed over this year.

  14. Flynn Kelly says:

    PLEASE COME TO ATLANTA!! I’m a huge newcastle fan and I would love to see my team play!!

  15. Al says:

    The US is great but think about Vancouver, BC. WWC is there in 2015 and they have a great new pitch to play on at BC Place – at least 60,000 seats. It’s also a MLS city.

  16. Nick says:

    Boston would be a great stop

  17. Boyd says:

    It’s interesting that Newcastle in ’11 and Stoke City ’12 toured the same US cities. Is there a marketing agreement of some sort our are these just three clubs that could pay the dowry?

  18. Luka says:

    Boston would be a great site, Liverpool played last year at Fenway and it was a great time and a sell out as well.

  19. yinzer geordie says:

    Pittsburgh!!!! make up for last years “rumors” and the field being used for Women’s American Football!! Please, make it happen!!

  20. Zach says:

    Indianapolis, Chicago, Clevland, Columbus, Nashville, or Kansas City!

  21. Ben says:

    Chicago or green bay near Wisconsin legendary team on legendary service
