UPDATE 06-01-2012: Looks like the details are falling into place, but instead it will be on Friday August 3rd, AC Milan v Newcastle United. Read our newest article for the details here.
UPDATE 05-31-2012: Well it appears that if this match is going to happen it will be at Heinz Field. I can so with confidence from my sources in and around PNC Park, there is no chance the stadium can host the match on Aug 4th and a Pirate's home game two days later. I have reached out to the owners of the Women's Football Team, the Pittsburgh Passion, who have their league's championship at Heinz on August 4th and have not heard a straight out "no" that the game will be moved to another date, perhaps August 5th. However, I have heard that if the match does take place it will be AC Milan and Paris Saint-Germain. However, I have also heard the match could be moved to Montreal or Foxborough, that is why the details have not been finalized.
UPDATE 05-25-2012: I spoke with both Heinz Field and PNC Park special event coordinators this morning. Both have assured me that if there is something in the works for either facility that it is at a level above them because they have heard nothing regarding the August 4th match. PNC Park still is showing that day as open with the Pirates on the road and the World Football Challenge is also using Wrigley and Yankee Stadium as part of their tour. We will stay on top of this information and let you know when we find out more.
"We’ll play Chelsea on 28 July in Miami – announced Adriano Galliani today – then on 4 August in Pittsburg, we’ll play against another team yet to be decided and we’ll have a friendly against Real Madrid on 8 August in New York in the marvelous New York Yankee stadium”.
Pittsburgh? Seriously? I checked with my friend who works in sports in Pittsburgh, he has heard nothing of this rumor. I called over to PNC Park and the Pirates are on the road that day but have a home game on August 6th. I called over to Heinz Field and they are scheduled to have a women's football game that day, which would surely be rescheduled if the rumor was true. I doubt a team as big as AC Milan would play at the Riverhounds home of Highmark Stadium which has 5,000 seats.
As of right now this looks like something lost in translation, however we are working our sources and will keep you posted because it makes perfect sense that AC Milan would add a third date on their US Tour.
