Union to play Spanish power Valencia - but when?

Valencia put out a statement on its website that the game will be on July 31. A spokesperson for the Union told me this morning that the game will be at PPL Park but a date and time have not yet been confirmed.

Union to play Spanish power Valencia - but when?

The report originated on the other side of the Atlantic, and now we have confirmation from the Union that powerhouse Spanish club Valencia CF will visit Philadelphia.

Valencia put out a statement on its website that the game will be on July 31. A spokesperson for the Union told me this morning that the game will be at PPL Park but a date and time have not yet been confirmed.

The reason why the date and time have not been confirmed is that the Union host New England on the same day. So the Valencia game has to be on another day.

Valencia also stated that they will play the New England Revolution on August 3 and D.C. United on August 7th. The Revolution are free on the 3rd, but United are at New England on the 7th.

The Washington Post's Steve Goff reported this morning that there have been negotiations between D.C. and Valencia to play in August, but there's no confirmation of a date there either.
