There have been rumors flying around for a couple of months that the Charleston Battery was going to host another English Premier League team this July.
A year ago, the Battery played a friendly match against Bolton, a member of the EPL.
Battery president Andrew Bell has been trying to secure another EPL team again for this summer. And while he's had several interested parties, an agreement was never finalized.
There was even some interest from other clubs in Europe, including one from Spain.
Well, according to a couple of reliable sources, the Battery has agreed in principle to a “friendly” with a team from England's Championship League on July 27.
My understanding is that it's a pretty big club that has been in the EPL recently.
Stay tuned. Will update as details become available.
