Chelsea the history-makers in first ever match at Yankee Stadium


Bookmark and Share

By Andrew Tuft

Friday 20 July 2012

Chelsea will be part of an historic occasion on Sunday as they compete in the first ever football match to be played at New York’s iconic Yankee Stadium, the Daily Mail has reported.



The Champions League winners are due to face French side Paris Saint-German, managed by former Chelsea boss Carlo Ancelotti. The friendly is part of the pre-season preparations for Roberto Di Matteo’s side, who defeated Seattle Sounders earlier this week and will meet an MLS All-Star team and Italian side Milan before returning home.


Although the old Yankee Stadium hosted football matches on a regular basis - particularly in the era of Pele and the original New York Cosmos - the new Yankee Stadium has never been used as a football arena. Since the New York Yankees moved to their new home in 2009 it has only ever seen baseball played on the infield, which now has to be torn up, including the pitcher’s mound, and replaced with turf suitable for football.
