The Queen City becomes more of a soccer city with each passing day. This summer will feature a huge match for our new MLS franchise. Charlotte FC has announced the team will be hosting Chelsea FC of the English Premier League for a friendly match on Wednesday, July 20 at Bank of America Stadium.

While Charlotte FC has performed better than expected in its first season, this “friendly” will be a tough test for the young squad. Chelsea FC has been one of the EPL’s best clubs for years and currently sits third in the standings.

Tickets go on sale to the public on Wednesday, May 25 at 10:00 AM. Charlotte FC has had record-setting attendance for home matches so you might want to sign up for EARLY ACCESS to buy before the general public on Tuesday, May 24. Season ticket holders already have access to an exclusive discounted pre-sale.
