English Premier League duo Manchester City and Chelsea, plus MLS side DC United have been announced as Celtic's opponents for their blockbuster USA summer tour. 

Brendan Rodgers' squad were already scheduled to meet Chelsea at the iconic Notre Dame Stadium in South Bend, Indiana on July 27. And now they will go head-to-head with last season's Treble winners four days earlier at Kenan Stadium in Chapel Hill, South Carolina after beginning the stateside tour with a trip to US capital Washington, where they face DC United at Audi Field.

Celtic club captain and Scotland internationalist Callum McGregor said: “We are delighted to be visiting Washington to meet DC United and we are sure the match will be another great sporting occasion. Celtic has enjoyed a number of great visits to the United States previously to play both European and MLS teams and I am sure this summer we will enjoy another successful visit.

“We are really grateful to have such a strong fanbase in the States and it is great that these matches will give our fans a chance to see us in action again.”
