Tickets go on sale April 2, with prices starting at $30. The will be the first ever international soccer match played at the stadium.
“All the first team players are really looking forward to the opportunity to play in the iconic Busch stadium, and bringing Manchester City even closer to their North American fans,” said Ferran Soriano, Chief Executive for Manchester City Football Club.
“It’s an excellent opportunity for the club to be able to return to America so quickly after the last tour,” said Chelsea Chief Executive Ron Gourlay. “We will face the strongest opposition in Manchester City and I am sure we will provide a competitive and entertaining match in St Louis.”
Manchester City and Chelsea are expected to announce an additional match of their brief US tour. Both clubs will face each other in another friendly, this time either at Yankee Stadium on May 25 in New York City.
