As English Premier League top five clubs Manchester United, Manchester City and Tottenham Hotspur wrap up their North American pre-season tours over the next week and a half, there will be no less than nine club friendlies taking place over the next ten days. The great news for soccer fans in the United States is that eight of them will be broadcast on television and, in some cases, the internet. Here’s a compilation of the games scheduled along with the channels that you can catch them on if you can’t make it to them in person.
Manchester City meets Mexico’s Club América in the Georgia Dome in Atlanta, GA in July 28th. No television outlet has announced that it will broadcast this game as yet.
New MLS signing Thierry Henry is expected to make his first Red Bulls appearance in the club’s friendly with Tottenham Hotspur on July 22nd at Red Bull Arena.
