NEW YORK (AP) - Chelsea supporters on tour with their club in the U.S. will get to watch which team succeeds as Champions League winner.
The Yankees said Thursday they will show the Champions League final between Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund on the 59-by-101-foot video board at Yankee Stadium before Chelsea's postseason exhibition against Manchester City at the Bronx ballpark on May 25.
The Champions League final, played at London's Wembley Stadium, starts at 2:45 p.m. EDT, and the Chelsea-Man City exhibition kicks off at 5:30 p.m. Yankee Stadium's gates open at 2 p.m.
Chelsea won last year's Champions League's final on penalty kicks against Bayern in Munich and plays Benfica in the Europa League final at Amsterdan next Wednesday.
This will be the third soccer match at new Yankee Stadium, which opened in 2009. Chelsea tied Paris Saint-Germain 1-1 last July and Real Madrid routed AC Milan 5-1 the following month.
