Charlotte FC announced today a friendly match against English Premier League’s Chelsea FC on July 20 at Bank of America Stadium. Chelsea FC, the London-based Premier League club, is one of the most successful soccer brands globally, and the match will mark the return of American phenom Christian Pulisic, who took to the pitch in Charlotte when Borussia Dortmund went against Liverpool in 2018. Pulisic will be joined by Chelsea FC stars N’Golo Kante (France), Mason Mount (England) and Edouard Mendy (Senegal), who are all expected to play for their respective countries at this winter’s FIFA World Cup in Qatar.

“Charlotte is a soccer city and to host Chelsea FC, one of the biggest clubs in the world, for an international friendly this summer is an incredible opportunity to showcase our region as a soccer hotbed. We’ve always said we wanted to bring the best talent and teams around the globe to Bank of America Stadium and this delivers on that promise,” said Charlotte FC President Joe LaBue. “It is also an excellent opportunity for our players to play against the top competition in the world, and to continue to showcase our Club on a global stage.”

The match is part of this summer’s FC Series event featuring international matches across the country. The series concludes with a match between Arsenal and Chelsea at Camping World Stadium in Orlando on July 23.
