Chelsea vs. Inter Milan Rose Bowl Information:
The European powers will muscle in on Major League Soccer's season by staging a one-week, six-city tournament from July 19 to 26, featuring three of the continent's best teams and one of Mexico's premier clubs.
Chelsea FC, AC Milan, Internazionale Milano and Club America will play a round-robin tournament as part of a preseason American tour designed to expand the clubs' international footprint.
"It gives us the opportunity to really capitalize on the growing support of the game," said Peter Kenyon, the chief executive of Chelsea . "It's utilizing the team - on the back of broadcast - to go and support football development, soccer development, and also allow our fans, who are an ever-growing number, to come and touch the holy grail if you like."
The teams will play at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena , Calif. ; the Georgia Dome in Atlanta ; Baltimore 's MT&T Bank Stadium; Gillette Stadium in Foxborough , Mass. ; Stanford Stadium in Palo Alto , Calif. ; and the new Cowboys Stadium in Texas . All games will be televised on ESPN or ESPN2, as well as the Spanish-language network, ESPN Deportes, and online at ESPN360.com
Before the foreign teams play each other at those sites, many will face M.L.S. competition. A.C. Milan has a friendly match scheduled for July 19 against the L.A. Galaxy, and Kenyon said that Chelsea will play the Sounders, the M.L.S. newcomers, in Seattle before its first match against Inter Milan on July 21 in Pasadena . That will mark the first time Chelsea will face its former manager, Jose Mourinho, who now coaches Inter Milan.
