Summer Lovin'

The Scoring Third is proud to present it's up-to-the-nano-second schedule of European based teams coming to the US this summer for friendlies. We have decided on the catchy name Summer Lovin' because what better love could you find in the summer than some live action with your favorite foreign team right in your own backyard.

We have organized the list based on team names instead of dates since we usually get word of a team's entire schedule all at once. Dates will be listed as confirmed or rumored with the rumors being pretty likely based on the information we have from our crack (head) research team.

Check back often, we will post updates as more teams announce their plans for this summer. Based on the information already available, 2011 may be the best summer for friendlies in quite sometime.
