The Europeans are coming!!

Chelsea FC, Inter Milan and AC Milan are heading for North America this summer as part of the World Football Challenge. Club America is the other team involved. Nothing in Canada just yet, but we know that the Alberta Soccer Association was hoping to bring Inter Milan to their city. Chelsea will play Seattle Sounders FC on July 18th, so perhaps some of the other clubs will be searching for friendlies against MLS or USL teams while they are here.

Montreal had been rumoured to be trying to find a major team to play a friendly at the Big 'O'. The Whitecaps, already making one big news story this year may also be looking for a friendly this summer.

The schedule is below:

-Sunday, July 19th- Club America vs. Inter Milan (Stanford Stadium, Palo Alto, California)

-Tuesday, July 21st- Chelsea FC vs. Inter Milan (Rose Bowl, Pasadena, California)

-Wednesday, July 22nd- AC Milan vs. Club America (Georgia Dome, Atlanta)

-Friday, July 24th- AC Milan vs. Chelsea (M&T Bank Stadium, Baltimore)

-Sunday, July 26th- AC Milan vs. Inter Milan (Gillette Stadium, Foxborough, Mass.)

-Sunday, July 26th- Chelsea FC vs. Club America (Cowboy Stadium, Arlington, Texas)
