THE BRONX - Fans from far and wide came to the Bronx tonight to watch their favorite players from across the Atlantic Ocean.

The Chelsea Football Club competed against the Manchester City Football Club in an exhibition soccer match at Yankee Stadium.

Fans say they hope they can see more exhibition games in the future.

Local bars, pubs and restaurants in the area say soccer games at the arena provide a great boom in business before the big game.

Next month, Yankee Stadium will host Spain and Ireland in soccer matches.
