    Pretty cool. I’ll be at the NYC match but I’ll definitely watch the St. Louis match as well.

  2. Eddy says:

    Pre-season? These games are more like post-season. Dam its gonna be nothing but backups playing.

  3. Matt says:

    Yankee Stadium match is the same day as the CL final, though the 5:30 kickoff will mean the game will start about an hour after the end of that match unless there is ET and PKs

    • The Gaffer says:

      They’ll be showing the Champions League Final on a big screen before the City vs Chelsea game at Yankee Stadium. More details to come.

      • San Franciscan says:

        So technically Fox’s ad I saw somewhere about this match stating “European champions and English champions” is not correct.

        • Dave says:

          It is technically correct as Chelsea have won the Champions League and Manchester City have won the EPL title. They just won’t be the current champions.

          Manchester City won’t be current champions when the teams play but Chelsea will be current champions in the CL for the first game in St Louis but by the time they kickoff in New York they won’t be.
