Swansea City announces 2017 US summer tour

Swansea City manager Paul Clement will bring his team to the United States this summer for three friendlies and a training camp.

The Swans will head to the United States on July 13 where they’ll be based in Philadelphia. The first opponent will be a friendly against Philadelphia Union on July 15.

The Welsh team will then head to the Carolinas where they’ll continue training. In between, the Premier League club will then face Richmond Kickers (July 19) and North Carolina FC (July 22).

“We are pleased to confirm the tour details earlier than normal,” explained Swans vice-chairman Leigh Dineen. “The tour is not only designed to provide Paul Clement with the best environment to prepare the squad for the new campaign, but it also gives Swans fans at home and in the States the opportunity to plan potential trips well in advance.”

It will be the fourth time the club has headed to America pre-season having visited Colorado and California in 2012; Chicago, Milwaukee and Minnesota in 2014 before returning last season for a 10-day camp in Washington.
