The Premier League will host its first-ever Summer Series in the United States in July 2023, featuring six teams – Aston Villa, Brentford, Brighton, Chelsea, Fulham and Newcastle United – in nine games across five cities. Games will take place in Atlanta, Orlando, Harrison, NJ, Philadelphia and Landover, MD.
Alan Shearer, the Premier League’s all-time leading goal scorer, expressed his excitement about the tournament in a recent interview, stating that he loves the passion of the fans in the US and believes that soccer is growing rapidly in the country.
“It is fantastic news,” he told ProSoccer Talk. “I have been lucky enough to spend time with the guys at Premier League Mornings Live and be at seven of the eight Fan Fests that have happened and it is fascinating, “For them to get up at stupid o’clock and queue for hours and come in and watch their teams and mingle and all get together, I love it. To have six teams coming over to America in the summer, I think it is fantastic and something to look forward to.”
The Summer Series is the Premier League’s inaugural preseason tournament in the US, following the successful biennial Premier League Asia Trophy that was held in Singapore, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Thailand, and China. The Premier League’s chief executive, Richard Masters, said the tournament would allow the league to build on the dedication of tens of thousands of fans who attend Premier League Mornings Live fan events in the US.
