If you can’t quite make it over to England, sometimes you can catch English soccer teams touring the US, playing friendlies against MLS teams or other teams from the UK and Europe.
But which teams, where, and when?
Most of this is part of the International Champions Cup (ICC), which brings teams from all over to the US. So in addition to Premier League teams, you might also catch Real Madrid, Barcelona, Juventus, Roma, and other European giants.
Details and ticket info on the ICC can be found at internationalchampionscup.com.
But my focus here is on English soccer, so let’s get to that. I have looked through all the Premier League and Championship clubs, and only a few Premier League teams are coming over. The rest, and all of the Championship teams, are playing in England or elsewhere in Europe.
Premier League Teams Touring the USA in Summer 2017
Manchester City will play three games in the US in 2017, all part of the ICC:

MLS All-Stars Take on Real Madrid
This isn’t England-related, obviously, but Real Madrid will, in addition to playing in the ICC, play the MLS All-Stars on August 2 in Chicago. Tickets are available but crazy expensive.
