NEW YORK (AP) - Chelsea of the English Premier League has announced its roster for its exhibition tour of the United States.

Among the 30 players set to take part in the four-match tour are veteran midfielder Frank Lampard, goalkeeper Petr Cech and former England captain John Terry, a defender who was acquitted Friday of racially abusing an opponent in a league match in October.

The tour features the first soccer match at the new Yankee Stadium, with Chelsea taking on Paris Saint-Germain on July 22 after opening the tour in Seattle against Sounders FC of Major League Soccer on July 18.

The Champions League winners will also face the MLS All-Stars in Philadelphia on July 25 and head to Miami for a July 28 match against AC Milan.
