   Thousands of soccer fans were treated to an exhibition match between two of the world's most successful teams.  The Busch Stadium field was transformed into a pitch for last night's "friendly" which was enjoyed by a sold out crowd. 

   People spent a lot of time standing in lines for souvenirs or the chance to pose with the Europe league trophy won earlier this month by Chelsea.

   They paid to see the stars and the stars didn't disappoint: Oscar, Dzeko, Tevez, Torres.  English Premier League rivals Chelsea and Manchester City battled at Busch Stadium to the delight of local and visiting soccer fans alike.

   Chelsea built a 3-0 lead, but Manchester City answered with four of their own. The final was 4-3, but fans here feel like they were the winners.

   The two teams play another friendly match Saturday at Yankee Stadium.

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."
