Soccer Will Return to Comerica Park July 30 with an International Match Featuring Crystal Palace vs. Sevilla

313 Presents announced today that they will host a world-class pre-season match between English Premier League Club, Crystal Palace FC, and LaLiga’s Sevilla FC. The professional soccer match will take place at Comerica Park on Sunday, July 30 at 7 p.m

This match will mark the return of international football to Comerica Park for the first time in six years. In July 2017, Comerica Park hosted its first-ever soccer match between AS Roma of the Italian Serie A League against Paris Saint-Germain of France’s Ligue 1 in the 2017 International Champions Cup tournament.

“We are thrilled to have international soccer return to Comerica Park for a match between two elite football clubs,”said Howard Handler, President of 313 Presents. “This match-up will provide metro Detroit’s soccer fans a unique opportunity to watch their favorite European clubs play once again in person.”

Competing in what is widely regarded as the best league in the world, London-based Crystal Palace is currently placed 12th in the English Premier League and the Eagles will enter their 11th consecutive season in the top-flight of English football next season.

The club is currently managed by former England Men’s National Team manager Roy Hodgson and their squad is packed full of international stars such as US Men’s National Team player Chris Richards, England international Marc Guehi, Ghana’s Jordan Ayew and Jeffrey Schlupp, and Denmark’s Joachim Andersen. Palace also have some of the most exciting, young attacking talent in the Premier League in Eberechi Eze and Michael Olise.

Crystal Palace Chairman Steve Parish said: “We are absolutely delighted to return to the US for the first time since 2016. We have so many loyal supporters Stateside who regularly visit us in London, and even more who wake up early every weekend to watch on NBC – so it will be fantastic to play in front of them all against such strong opposition this July.”
