Sky Sports have announced they will be broadcasting the first-ever Premier League Summer Series as Aston Villa head to the USA for their pre-season friendlies.

The friendly tournament will include six teams: Chelsea, Newcastle, Brighton, Fulham, Brentford and Villa. Five east coast states will host the nine games from July 23 to July 30.

The games will take place at five different stadiums including Lincoln Financial Field (Philadelphia), Mercedes-Benz Stadium (Atlanta), Exploria Stadium (Orlando); Red Bull Arena (New Jersey) and FedExField, Landover (Maryland).

Villa played their first summer friendly at Walsall, drawing 1-1 at the Bescot Stadium last weekend. Unai Emery's side will return to action on Sunday (July 23), kicking off their Stateside tour against Eddie Howe's Newcastle.

I already said this in games moved for tv.
But it's great to hear and see games at midnight

I think we should be having match threads and pre and post match threads for the summer series.
Get posters warmed up for the start of the Prem.

I know this is basically Premiership advertising, but it's a little disappointing that the bulk of our preseason is against teams we'll be playing in a few weeks/months anyway.
At least we've got 2 European teams to play afterwards for a bit of something different.

You appear to have come back from the off-season in fine fettle. No summer slacking off for F-V.

Iíve been to Philly, back in the 70ís. The City of Brotherly Love ❤️ , with a big sculptural clothespeg in the middle, and some great markets at the time.
What a toddling town! As Frank Sinatra used to sing.

Really liked it. They have boulevards. I stayed there in 1977, it was magic.

There was a city ordinance that nobody could build higher than William Pennís hat (Which was on a famous statue on top of erÖthe Town Hall, I think.) Well, someone told me that at the time, it could have been a load of untrue.

So, the very best of luck to our lads and The Villa, for the entire tournament l👍😎🥂

You're not suggesting our Philly Lions know where the dead bodies are buried, are ya?
