FC Barcelona’s MLS-organized tours of the U.S. will begin this summer with games in Chicago and New York.

Sounders FC has informed MLS that it would like Barcelona brought to Seattle at some point during the five-year partnership, but if that happens, it will be further down the line.

Here’s is the announced schedule for the Spanish club that has 18 La Liga trophies, a record-setting 24 Copa del Rey championships and two UEFA Champions League titles:

Sunday, Aug. 3 vs. Chivas de Guadalajara of Mexico at Chicago’s Soldier Field (4 p.m. PT).

Wednesday, Aug. 6 vs. New York Red Bulls of MLS at Giants Stadium (4 p.m. PT).

Tickets to the general public will be available starting Sunday, June 8, for the Chicago game. Packages for the New York match will go on sale to the general public on Tuesday, June 3rd at 2 pm PT. Further details of ticket offerings will be announced by the respective MLS club and the club Web sites.
