Chelsea, PSG set for Yankee Stadium

Chelsea are set to play the first ever football match at New York's new Yankee Stadium after confirming they will face Paris St Germain there during their US summer tour.

The Blues will take on PSG at the home of the New York Yankees baseball team - which will hold 54,000 spectators once configured for football - on Sunday, July 22.

Chelsea have not played in New York since 1954 and they and PSG will contest the first football match at Yankee Stadium since it opened in 2009.

The game reunites the Blues with former manager Carlo Ancelotti - who they controversially sacked at the end of last season - his assistant Claude Makelele, coach Paul Clement and defender Alex.

It will be the second game of Chelsea's US tour, with the club also announcing today their final fixture would be against AC Milan at Sun Life Stadium in Miami on Saturday, July 28.

They had already confirmed matches against Seattle Sounders at CenturyLink Field on July 18 and and MLS All Stars at PPL Park, Philadelphia, on July 25.

"Chelsea Football Club is delighted to be heading to New York after such a long time away, and it will be a real pleasure to visit Yankee Stadium for what is sure to be a competitive game," said chief exec Ron Gourlay on the club's official website.

"Paris St Germain represents a true test for us in our preparations for the new season.

"We know Carlo well and respect the superb job he did for us, and continues to do in France. It should be a fantastic game."
