  1. Ardwickian says:

    is the Man City v ac milan game on july 27 in pittsburg still on.

  2. Gringo says:

    2 Villa friendlies in Texas….why do I get the feeling there’s a dude with a big hat and a pile of cash waiting for them when they get there…

  3. R.O says:

    Well at least the SF Bay Area got one decent game (Quakes vs Alt. Madrid).

    We use to get all the top Nat and club teams here. Don’t know why that changed?

    • Levi's Stadium says:

      The “good” games will return to the Bay when Levi’s Stadium opens.

      No one wants to play at the Stick (please implode that pigsty ASAP) or the Phone Booth (a baseball park with lousy sightlines).

      • R.O says:

        True, but Stanford is still a great place to watch games. Yes it’s only 55K now but that’s still big enough and bigger or equal in size of other venues around the country that are getting games.

  4. G. Pannekoek says:

    Liverpool vs. Olympiacos in Chicago, 7/27

  5. soc 23 says:

    I wouldnt go to any of the club friendlies because all their good players will be playing in the World Cup, or resting from it afterwards

  6. christian says:

    So far I’ve got USA vs Turkey and Liverpool vs MCFC tickets. May still go to a few other ones but it’s going to be a great summer with all this and the World Cup.

    • R.O says:

      Purchased the MLS vs Bayern Tickets. Had to get them through Stubhub, all sold out via Timbers.

      I’ll be there to boo Bayern .

  7. ligda says:

    hey when will the tickets be on sale for : AS Monaco vs Atletico Nacional, Miami game on July 23?? If there is a link i can just see would be awesome thanks.

  8. Samuel says:

    MNLotAdvantage USA? For God so loved USA that he has given team USA an chance to watch a lot of teams in action , including group G world cup opponents , Ghana and Portugal .
    No country could have had it so good TEAM USMNT. This is a mini world cup and if USA can pick lessons from , they can go far in Brazil .But can they ?

  9. napoli says:

    when is napoli coming to the united states

  10. santiago berrio says:

    Hey how much is the tickets for atletico nacional vs as monaco in miami july 23

  11. Nick Hawkins says:

    You have Manchester United v Roma shown on July 26th and 27th. Its on the 26th. Please update.

  12. So Arsenal will play only one game during the pre-season tour

  13. I only pray that none of the Arsenal players going to the world cup get an injury

  14. Matthew says:

    Man City vs. AC Milan is Sunday, July 27 @ Heinz Field in Pittsburgh

  15. biggiotown says:

    Look at all of these friendlies in the United States. And no Americans will be attending them. As usual, nothing but immigrant populations at these events.

    Because in the United States, soccer doesn’t matter. Never has, never will.

    • American says:

      I’m an American, & I’m going to one of these matches. Soccer matters to me. If it doesn’t matter to everyone, so be it. Why do people feel the need to justify or discredit soccer? I think the NBA is boring, so I don’t watch. If others watch, great. If they don’t, great. To each his or her own.

  16. Eric says:

    Philadelphia Union vs Crystal Palace, PPL Park, Chester, PA

    This game will be played on Friday July the 25th,and not on the 24th!

  17. Jeff Stephens says:

    July 15 – Rangers vs. Ventura Country Fusion
    July 19 – Rangers vs. Sacramento Republic
    July 21 – Rangers vs. Victoria Highlanders

  18. Jon says:

    Two changes to note/add:

    Brasil vs Ecuador, 09/09/14, Met Life Stadium, East Rutherford, NJ

    Also, the Olympiacos AC Milan is in Toronto at BMO Field now, not Citi Field in New York.

  19. Nick says:

    Sacramento Republic vs West Brom on July 21st and July 25th

  20. gkd says:

    two Bay Area edits…

    The July 27th SJ Earthquakes match v Atletico Madrid will be at Candlestick Park at 4pm.

    The July 26th Real Madrid vs Inter Milan match is in Berkeley, CA. It’s across the bay from SF, but it is not SF. The venue’s name is Memorial Stadium. It’s on the UC Berkeley campus, and is where the college football team plays it’s home games.

  21. Brad says:

    I have to work tonight but I wish I could go to Milwaukee and see Swansea City v Chivas Guadalajara play.

  22. Bob says:

    Is there any place that I can find the rosters for the Real Madrid vs Barcelona friendly at Marlin’s Park on Sep. 11th.?

    • Christopher Harris says:

      Here they are:

      Real Madrid: Bodo Illgner (GK), Steve McManaman, Christian Karembeu, Fernando Morientes, Luis Figo (pictured above), Ruben De La Red, Guti, Michel Salgado, Ivan Zamorano, Fernando Redondo, and Fabio Cannavaro

      Barcelona: Vitor Baia, Henrik Larsson, Luis Garcia, Deco, Guily, Juliano Belletti, Francesco Coco, Santi Ezquerro, and Gerard Lopez.

      Subject to change. And more players may be added soon.

  23. Atanu Chatterjee says:

    What about the USA vs Colombia match in sept, 2014? Is it really confirmed? Do not see anyone selling the tickets yet.

    • Christopher Harris says:

      Colombia supposedly didn’t submit the contract to the US in time, so the friendly is not going to be played.
