Bournemouth confirm pre-season tour of United States

Bournemouth have confirmed they will spend pre-season in the United States this summer.

The Premier League club have announced they will head to Los Angeles, California with the playing squad, including USMNT captain Tyler Adams, to be based at the training facilities of MLS team LA Galaxy.

They also toured the U.S. back in 2016.

The two-week trip will see the club play their first two friendlies of pre-season and will also take in a visit to Santa Barbara.

Chief executive, Neill Blake, said: “I’m delighted that we’re able to confirm this exciting news, and that we will be providing the best possible preparation for the playing squad to continue their great work of this season.

“We’ve secured an incredible facility for Andoni (Iraola) and his staff to operate in, for the start of what will be an historic season for AFC Bournemouth as we prepare to move into a state-of-the-art training ground of our own.”

President of business, Jim Frevola, added: “It’s great that we’re able to take the team back to the US for the first time in nearly ten years. I’m so excited to head out there to see and grow our fanbase in the area, and to continue to develop the club off the field.

“We were thrilled by the recent Premier League event in Nashville, and now we can’t wait to meet with more Cherries fans out on the west coast.”

The club also confirmed they will host two friendlies at Vitality Stadium ahead of the first round of the 2024-25 Premier League season on the weekend of August 17.
