ALL THE PRESEASON FRIENDLIES!

A couple weeks ago, we ran a story about enterprising Redditors examining the source code of the International Champions Cup's webpage to discover that Chelsea were expected to be among the final four participants revealed for this summer tournament.

With Chelsea already confirmed to be touring Southeast Asia in a little over a month, many were skeptical. Yet, when the organizers revealed the final list of participants, sure enough, Chelsea were there:

So that's Real Madrid, AC Milan, Inter Milan, Juventus, Valencia, Everton, Chelsea, and the LA Galaxy. The leaked list from the website was only wrong in one spot: it had Benfica instead of Valencia.

The exact schedule has not been announced yet, but we do know that the first match will take place on July 27th and at least one match will be played in San Francisco (and Phoenix, and Miami, and New York, and Indianapolis, and one undisclosed European location). See you there!
