Chelsea To Take On MLS All-Stars

Chelsea’s 2012 summer tour of the United States of America will include a clash with the MLS All-Stars, according to reports this week.

As revealed by Ives Galarcep of Fox Soccer, the Blues will take on the best the MLS has to offer on July 25th at the Philadelphia Union’s PPL Park.

It marks the second time the club has been involved in the all-star festivities after losing 1-0 to a Dwayne De Rosario goal in 2006. Their latest sojourn across the Atlantic already includes a confirmed match against the Seattle Sounders and one in Washington against AC Milan.

The news is expected to be made public on Wednesday afternoon at 16.30 UK time with a live press conference streamed on
