St. Louis plays host Thursday night to a soccer exhibition featuring a pair of rivals in the English Premier League. With the Cardinals on the road, Busch Stadium welcomes some of the top soccer talent in the world. But those with a ticket need to heed some warnings. KTRS' Vicki Pimentel has this report.

"Soccer fans heading to Thursday night's exhibition between Manchester City and Chelsea should expect extra security checks at the gates. St. Louis police chief Sam Dotson says it will be a lot like the playoffs or World Series, but planning ahead can save fans time.

Dotson says, 'Post-Boston, the stadium has put in new security measures where they do random wanding. They've always done bag checks now they're doing an additional layer of security to look for those types of things. So leave those items at home; pocket knives, pen knives, mace, guns, no place at a soccer match.'

Chief Dotson also urges the public not to leave a weapon in the car and not to leave anything you value, visible.  Reporting from St. Louis city, I'm Vicki Pimentel, KTRS news."

ST. LOUIS (AP) - Two of the top teams in soccer's English Premier League are coming to St. Louis for an exhibition match.

<br><br>

   The St. Louis Cardinals announced Friday that Busch Stadium will host a game on May 23 between Manchester City and Chelsea.

<br><br>

   St. Louis has a long soccer heritage but has been hurt in recent years because of the lack of an appropriate venue for big-time matches.

<br><br>

   Vicki Bryant, vice president of event services and merchandising for the Cardinals, says the hope is to make a high-profile match an annual event.

<br><br>

   The match will be the first professional, non-baseball sporting event at Busch since the stadium opened in 2006.

<br><br>

   Tickets starting at $30 go on sale Tuesday, with a pre-sale Monday for Cardinals season ticket holders.
