SUMMER FRIENDLY CALENDAR: UPDATED 5-27-2010

PORTSMOUTH FC TO PLAY CLUB AMERICA, FC EDMONTON AND DC UNITED

Portsmouth, who will be coming to the Americas for the first time since going to South America in 1951, will be playing against Mexican perennial power Club America on July 14 at Qualcomm Stadium in San Diego, then head north of the border to plat the an Edmonton FC Select XI on July 21 before shifting to the East Coast to meet DC United at RFK Stadium on July 24.

After a season that must go on record as one of the worst in the history 112 year history of Portsmouth FC, the newly relegated club is set to tour North America in preparation for the 2010-11 season in the Football League  Championship.

Portsmouth has gone almost $200 million into debt, they’ve gone into administration, had 12 points deducted from their 2009-10 season, were relegated, had to sell off their players, and lost their manager… all in one season. Oh, and against all the odds Pompey made it to the FA Cup Final.
