It’s official: Paris Saint-German will come to the USA for their Paris Loves US summer tour from July 15 – 26, 2017!
With Miami, FL as their basecamp, PSG will compete in the International Champions Cup, which they’ve won for the past two years in a row, in 2015 and 2016. On July 19, the team will play against AS Rome (location to be determined). On July 22, they’ll go up against Tottenham Hotspur in Orlando. Finally, on July 26, they’ll face off with Juventus in Miami.
This upcoming summer tournament in the US, the fourth since 2012 when the International Champions Cup began, will “allow the Parisian team to prepare for their season by playing against the biggest teams of Europe, and to give them a chance to meet their fans from across the pond where PSG is gaining more and more popularity,” PSG’s club announced on their website.
PSG has had an interesting season thus far. In a shocking upset, they were thrashed by Barcelona FC, losing 6-1 on March 9th. More recently, though, the news has been good for PSG. On April 1st (no joke), PSG beat Monaco’s 4-1 at Stade des Lumières in Lyon to win their French league. Here’s an awesome video run-down of the final match.
The full summer’s program was released on March 25, the same day the press conference was held in New York, where former PSG team member Daniel Bravo was present. Tickets for the matches are currently unavailable but will be released soon. Check out this video to get excited about the summer of European foot to come!
