Newcastle United are scheduled to play Sporting Kansas City in a friendly match this summer, according to a tweet by Robb Heineman, President of the Missouri-based Major League Soccer club.

The tweet, sent about an hour ago, has already caused speculation about a North American tour not unlike the tour recently announced by Manchester United which includes the Red Devils playing in the MLS All Star Game in New York. Multiple cities have not yet been confirmed, though the speculation doesn't seem to be terribly irresponsible, as a one-city stopover on a different continent doesn't seem to be very cost-effective.

A date has not yet been announced, but we're definitely going to stay on top of this story and keep you all updated. It's no secret that most of the commenters here are American, so if there was ever a chance for a CHN meet-up, this has got to be it.
