Newcastle United Will Visit Columbus Crew In July

Newcastle United has added a match against the Columbus Crew to their summer tour of the United States. The Magpies will play a friendly at Crew Stadium on July 26, the second time they've played a match in MLS's original soccer-specific stadium.

"We are pleased once again to bring top-flight international soccer right here to Columbus and to provide the best competitive challenge for our team," said Crew President & General Manager Mark McCullers in a team release. "The English Premier League is arguably the best league in the world and Newcastle United is one of its most storied clubs."

Newcastle is among the better supported teams in the EPL and has a loyal following in the United States. After being relegated to the Championship, they have now returned to the top division and sit ninth in the table, just two points out of a possible Europa League spot. Among the players they are expected to bring on the tour are Cheik Tote, Fabricio Collocini and Jonas Gutierrez.
