Tickets are available from just $30* at Fans who attend the double-headers in Philadelphia, Atlanta and Maryland will be able to watch both matches with one ticket, with prices starting from only $40*.

They will compete in a total of nine matches between Saturday 22 July and Sunday 30 July at stadiums in Atlanta, GA, Harrison, NJ, Orlando, FL, Philadelphia, PA and Landover, MD.

Premier League Chief Executive Richard Masters said: “With just over a month to go until the Premier League Summer Series, we are delighted to announce the match between Brighton & Hove Albion and Newcastle United at the Red Bull Arena in New Jersey as our first sold-out fixture.

“We have seen a terrific response from US-based fans and I have no doubt this is going to be a memorable tournament for them, the League and the clubs taking part.

“We have a range of family-friendly activity lined up in each of the host cities alongside the matches and can’t wait to come out there in July to bring an exciting Premier League experience to as many fans as possible.”

Brighton & Hove Albion Deputy Chairman and Chief Executive Paul Barber said: “We’re delighted to be playing in the United States for the first time as a Premier League club and as one of the six clubs in the Summer Series.

“It’s more than five weeks before we play Newcastle United and to hear that the game is already sold out is brilliant news.

“We know there is ever-growing interest in our sport in the United States, not least because of the popularity of the Premier League and the great work done by the US Soccer Federation, MLS and the entire grassroots soccer community to grow the game. We’re really looking forward to showcasing our club and the League to such passionate and engaged supporters next month.”

New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy added: “The sold-out Summer Series game at Red Bull Arena leaves no room for doubt: the beautiful game continues to thrive and expand across the nation and within the Garden State.

“By hosting these classic Premier League teams in the heart of North Jersey, we’ll realise significant economic benefits from the thousands of fans who will visit, shop, and stay in our region. Just as importantly, staging a highly anticipated match for the Premier League’s first pre-season tournament in the U.S. will unmistakably demonstrate that New Jersey is primed and ready to host the world’s biggest sporting event in just three years’ time.”

The Premier League Summer Series aims to give as many fans as possible the chance to enjoy live Premier League action and is part of the League’s ongoing commitment to its US-based fans. As well as high-profile matches and pre-season training camps, activities are planned in each host city to create a programme of community and youth soccer initiatives, which will be announced in the coming weeks.

The Premier League’s long-standing broadcast partner NBC Sports will be the host broadcaster across the networks of NBCUniversal and Peacock for the Summer Series with the Premier League’s international licensees broadcasting the event around the world in up to 189 countries.
