ESPN networks – ESPN2, ESPN Deportes, ESPN3, ESPNU and WatchESPN – will combine to televise live 28 soccer matches Thursday, May 23, through Friday, June 7. The schedule is highlighted by the U.S. Men’s National Team preparatory matches ahead of the team’s three 2014 FIFA World Cup qualifying contests in June, the first leg of a home-and-away Liga MX Final between Cruz Azul and Club America, and the 14 European qualifying matches for the 2014 FIFA World Cup on June 7.

It kicks off with the broadcast of the Chelsea vs Manchester City friendly at Busch Stadium, where over 10,000 showed up Wednesday for a Chelsea open practice session!

As always, you can find the full list on my Soccer Calendar in the bottom right of the website (or the link at top).

From an article in the Post-Dispatch earlier today

Seats will be added on the field while some in the upper deck in right field won’t be sold, bringing capacity for the game to about 42,000. Bryant said they’re hoping for a sellout, with fans coming from outside the area to see the game.

Fitting a soccer field into Busch Stadium will be a tight squeeze. The field will run from in front of the visiting dugout on the third-base line, along the first-base line, to the right field stands. It will be just short of 100 meters long, the minimum allowable length for an international match, which would probably preclude playing World Cup qualifying matches here. But because this match is an exhibition game, being a few feet short is permissible.
