Word came out late today that the "Messi and Friends" summer soccer tour has added a stop in Los Angeles on Wednesday July 3rd. The match will be played at the Los Angeles Coliseum and tickets are on sale now through the event website here.
The tour will also include at stop in Chicago on July 6th along with earlier stops in Lima, Peru and Medellin, Columbia. The list of players included in the matches is still growing, but it already appears to have some of the biggest names from Europe and South America included on the roster.
Last year Lionel Messi hosted the World Soccer Master's Tour which had a stop in Miami as well as several other locations. This summer's tour appears to be similar in format and will feature many of the players who took part in the 2012 tour.
All proceeds from the tour will support the Lionel Messi Foundation, a charity founded by the soccer star to help children with terminal illnesses.
