Preseason Friendlies

This summer, with the World Cup, the window of time that clubs can play friendlies is reduced, but many of the clubs will still be touring the world. During July and August, all 20 Premier League clubs will be traveling throughout England and many of them around the world to play friendly matches to get ready for the new season.

      Don’t get me started on that one! At least there are *some* friendlies in California. We have absolutely nothing here in Florida.

      Its not LA, but it’s close… Portsmouth will be playing against Club America in San Diego on July 14.

    Just was notified today that Manchester City will begin their training in Portland, OR at the Nike campus on July 13th. They will play their first pre-season game against the Portland Timbers on July 17th on the campus of the University of Portland. The venue seats about 4500 people and the tickets are only going to season ticket holders so it should be quite rowdy. Wait till they get a load of us.

  46. Chull

    May 12, 2010 at 9:05 pm

    Alot of Rangers and Stoke fans seem to think that their game on the 7th August is being played at the Britannia not St. Marys. But if this is true, and Port Vale are at home on the opening day of the football league season then surely the police would not allow it?

    • Chull

      May 16, 2010 at 7:50 pm

      I meant the Satdium of Light, not St. Marys.
