Interesting. I see no reason why I won't be there.

not really a "tour" but the Gold Cup is this summer too Though it doesn't mean much, USA and Mexico will most likely send "B" teams.

Chelsea v City will be played at Busch stadium. Sorry, but a baseball stadium is not a good venue for Football.

I don't get why they rarely come to the West Coast/Pacific Northwest. Seattle could probably sell out a 100k capacity stadium if they had one. BC Place isn't too shabby too.

Last time we had a decent match-up in this area was in 2006 when DC United played Real Madrid.

If Bayern or Dortmund make the CL semis their players won't go. I bet everyone buying tickets will be ecstatic to get to see the likes of Westerman and Herrmann.

It's the only place that it could be held in STL. I'm quite excited for it. Hopefully I can make it.

I know, I've visited your city last summer. :-)
The people I know there are definitely going to watch the game. Too bad the Dome isn't an option, because the atmosphere would be so much better. Oh well, not much that can be done if both sides refuse to play on artificial turf.

I think Chelsea will be playing City at Yankee Stadium on May 25th with the CL final being shown on the scoreboard in the stadium before the match. I will look to find a link confirming this.
