In addition to the standard training and games, Swansea also made visits to local soccer clubs in the area to promote the 'Swansea City' brand and also managed to fit in a game to watch Chicago Cubs' baseball game at Wrigley Field.

It is the fourth year in a row that PSC have taken an English Premier League team to the United States for a pre-season tour.
