Florida Cup steps up the competition with Premier League clubs Arsenal and Chelsea

ORLANDO, FL – English Premier League rivals Arsenal and Chelsea, two of the world’s most popular and successful professional soccer clubs, will meet at Camping World Stadium in Orlando, Florida on July 23 for the Florida Cup. The stateside derby will be the finale of a weeklong “FC Series” expansion featuring matches across the United States.

The Florida Cup has taken place in the state since 2015 featuring clubs from all over the world. In 2022, the FC Series will extend the weeklong “Clash of Nations” festival to multiple venues.

Arsenal will meet Orlando City SC at Exploria Stadium on July 20, a first-time meeting between the two clubs.

Chelsea will play two other matches across the US during the FC Series – on July 16 and 20 – with locations and opponents to be announced.

Ticket information for the FC Series is available at FCSeries.com. Broadcast information and official start times will be announced later this year.

Now in its eighth year, the Florida Cup returns to Orlando’s Communities of West Lakes after making its Camping World Stadium debut last summer. Everton FC of the English Premier League won the latest Florida Cup crown with a victory over top Colombian club Millonarios FC. Additional 2021 event participants included UNAM Pumas (Mexico) and Atlético Nacional (Colombia).

The weeklong festival will also include various events in Orlando featuring club Legends and other celebrities, including a concert from Brazilian superstar Ivete Sangalo on Sunday, July 17 at Universal Orlando Resort.
