Comerica Park to host international soccer match this summer

Professional soccer is coming back to the Motor City this summer.

English Premier League club Crystal Palace will square off against La Liga’s Sevilla in a preseason match at 7 p.m. on July 30 at Comerica Park, 313 Presents announced Friday.

AS Roma and Paris Saint-Germain played a soccer match at Comerica Park on July 19, 2017.

The contest marks the first time in six years that international soccer will be played in Detroit. Comerica Park hosted its first soccer match between Italian Serie A side AS Roma and French League powerhouse Paris Saint-Germain in July 2017 as part of the International Champions Cup.

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