Top 10 soccer tickets on sale this summer
10. Charlotte FC vs Chelsea – Charlotte, NC – July 20 – 7 p.m.
Charlotte FC is the youngest team to currently play in Major League Soccer. Playing out of Bank of America Stadium, the club does have a strong contingent of fans. However, Chelsea is one of America’s most-followed clubs in the world.
This will be Charlotte FC’s first game against a side from outside the United States, and they do it against the two-time UEFA Champions League winners.
Christian Pulisic is sure to make this game even more interesting for the thousands of American supporters to pack into the stadium. For those at home, this is one of four games between MLS clubs and major European teams to happen on Wednesday, July 20.
9. MLS All-Stars vs Liga MX All-Stars – Saint Paul, MN – August 10 – 7:30 p.m.
Most of the games on this list do not mean anything. There are some rivalries and some games featuring talented sides. This game, between MLS and Liga MX, goes a long way for pride.
Assuredly, Major League Soccer wants to establish itself as the top league in North America. Having the best players goes a long way in spreading the popularity and boosting the on-field product. Still, this game is more so for entertainment than it is to assert dominance over another.
This is also a strong opportunity for outside fans of American soccer to see what the domestic league can put together. At the same time, it gives those on the outside something of a comparison between the U.S. and its neighbors to the south.
8. Arsenal vs Everton – Baltimore, MD – July 16 – 7 p.m.
Two sides that had an interesting Premier League season. Both traditional powers, Everton barely stayed alive in the Premier League after a dramatic escape in the final matchdays. On the flip side, Arsenal’s late season collapse took away a berth into the UEFA Champions League.
Both results left a sour taste in the mouth for the clubs. Therefore, this early season clash provides something of a litmus test to see an early outlook on the 2022/23 campaign. With a number of stars on both teams, this is one of the hot soccer tickets on sale for this summer. Especially considering Baltimore is not an overly traditional market to host soccer games.
7. Club América vs Manchester City – Houston, TX – July 20 – 8:30 p.m.
This is not the first time we are seeing this matchup. Club América is perhaps the most successful side in the long history of Mexican soccer. They have two games in that history against Manchester City.
City won the two previous matchups between the two clubs back before 2010. Manchester City’s change since then is remarkable. Four Premier League titles in the last five years show the dominance of the Sky Blues in what is perhaps the toughest league in soccer. Talent abounds across the pitch, giving fans a great treat to watch live.
However, with this game in Houston, it is practically a guarantee to see Club América fans pack the stands in support of their club.
6. Barcelona vs Juventus – Dallas, TX – July 26 – 7 p.m.
A rematch of the 2015 UEFA Champions League Final and 2017 quarterfinals. One of the top teams in Spain playing one of the top teams in Italy. The reputation of these two clubs is enough to make this a marquee matchup.
With Juventus going through some changes, it is a chance to see how the Old Lady shapes up before another Scudetto run. Barcelona is in a similar boat. A young core made up of Pedri, Gavi and Ansu Fati are all on display in Dallas’s Cotton Bowl Stadium.
Any time two of Europe’s oldest and greatest powers go head-to-head, you can jot it down as a great game.
5. Inter Miami vs Barcelona – Fort Lauderdale, FL – July 19 – 7:30 p.m.
Just before the slew of MLS games against European opposition is Inter Miami playing Barcelona to begin the Catalan club’s U.S. tour. David Beckham makes Inter Miami have a certain prestige among soccer fans, even for a club like Barcelona. Despite the former England international playing for Real Madrid, Barcelona still welcomes this summer friendly in Miami.
Of course, this is the first time these two clubs meet, with Inter Miami only starting less than four years ago.
It is not the greatest game on paper. Yet, the fans at DRV PNK Stadium, combined with the thousands of Barcelona supporters in south Florida, make this a great atmosphere to watch in person.
4. Juventus vs Real Madrid – Los Angeles, CA – July 30 – TBD
Another rematch of a past Champions League Final involving Juventus and a team from Spain. Real Madrid, which won that 2017 Final and the most recent Final in 2022, returns to the United States in its usual glory. Another Champions League title paired nicely with a LaLiga crown.
Juventus has had its relative struggles in Serie A over the last couple of seasons. This game against Real Madrid is not an easy one for a preseason friendly. That being said, those challenging games can pay dividends in the actual season.
The famous Rose Bowl plays host as Los Blancos play the Old Lady to round out each club’s USA tour.
3. Chelsea vs Arsenal – Orlando, FL – July 23, TBD
Any time you have an opportunity to watch a London derby, you can rest assured it will be a dramatic game. This is still a friendly, yes. However, this edition of the Florida Cup features a pair of sides with a staunch disliking of one another.
The Blues and the Gunners had somewhat disappointing seasons a year ago. The defending Champions League winners did not build on that, finishing third in the Premier League and losing in the FA Cup and League Cup, both on penalties to Liverpool. Arsenal, as stated, missed out on Champions League qualification after a collapse over the last few games.
Expect some bad blood between these two in Orlando. Perhaps not as much as we may see in the Premier League, but still some toughness.
2. Manchester City vs Bayern Munich – Green Bay, WI – July 23, 7 p.m.
This game is just special because of the talent. Manchester City has a special new toy in Erling Haaland. Meanwhile, Bayern Munich looks set to lose its star striker, Robert Lewandowski. Despite that, the talent on display in this game is something that belongs in a Champions League Final, not necessarily a Saturday at Wisconsin.
Saying that, this is not just any place in Wisconsin. For the first time, the hallowed grounds of Lambeau Field host a soccer game. It is a fitting pair of clubs to play in that stadium, which is perhaps the most famous stadium in the United States.
Finally, this game opens the door for a potential meeting in the Champions League knockout stages. Both are expected to perform mightily in this season’s tournament.
1. El Clásico – Real Madrid vs Barcelona – Las Vegas, NV – July 23, 7 p.m.
Truly, this does not need any more build up. This is the second time Real Madrid and Barcelona will play in the United States. Moreover, it is the third time they will play outside of Spain. The first time that happened came back in 2017 in Miami.
Las Vegas hosted a number of notable international games last summer. The highlight of that was the Gold Cup Final between the USMNT and Mexico. As seen in that game, the venue is suitable for putting on a show.
If this game resembles that of 2017 between Real Madrid and Barcelona, this is definitely one of the hottest soccer tickets on sale for the summer.
