Chelsea Vs. AC Milan Match Moved To Miami July 28

The prospect of a soccer doubleheader at FedEx Field has officially gone by the boards. According to MLS' official website, the match between Chelsea and AC Milan, which had been tentatively scheduled to take place at the Redskins' home, will instead be played at SunLife Stadium in Miami July 28.

Initial plans were for the two European giants to play each other in one game of a doubleheader that would also include D.C. United and a "major Italian club," believed to be newly crowned Serie A champions Juventus. On Thursday, Steven Goff of the Washington Post reported that the planned doubleheader was in "severe jeopardy," and raised the possibility that United's friendly could be moved to RFK Stadium.

Up the road in Baltimore, Liverpool FC and Tottenham Hotspur will play a friendly match at M&T Bank Stadium on the same day. That match is scheduled for 1 p.m.
