Manchester City said Wednesday their end-of-season friendly against Chelsea in the United States has sold out.

City said the May 23 match in St Louis sold out inside just 20 minutes after tickets went on sale.

The English Premier League giants will meet at the home of St Louis Cardinals, Busch Stadium, which has a capacity of 46,861.

City's chief commercial and operating officer said Tom Glick said: "We believe in US soccer and we know how much passion the fans in North America have for the beautiful game.

"The club is committed to giving fans across the world the opportunity to get close to Manchester City FC."
