Ronaldo-Ballon-DoRThe August 2 preseason exhibition between Manchester United and Real Madrid will be played at Michigan Stadium. The match was announced Feb. 20, and the venue was finalized late last week.

Organizers expect the attendance to top the the 101,799 record for a soccer game in the US, that was set at the 1984 Olympic Gold medal match between France and Brazil at the Rose Bowl.

Add Arsenal to the list of teams this will be playing in the USA this summer. Arsene Wenger’s side have announced that they will play the New York Red Bulls and former Gunners great Thiery Henry at Red Bulls Arena on Saturday July 26th. This will be Arsenal’s first trip to the US in 25 years and they are only making one stop.

Man United to face Real Madrid at Michigan Stadium on Aug 2

As I mentioned this is shaping up to be a great summer of soccer with a pre World Cup matches for international teams including Spain, Portugal, USA, England and Nigeria Real Madrid.

After the World Cup is over then we have the 2014 International Champions Cup in which Liverpool, Manchester United, Manchester City, Real Madrid, AC Milan, Roma, Inter Milan and Olympiacos will participate. Details available here.

In addition, Liverpool have announced that they will play Serie A‘s AS Roma at Fenway Park on July 23. Both teams have Boston based owners, and this is a rematch of the 2012 game that was won by Roma.

Manchester City have also announced a fourth USA game as they will met Sporting Kansas City on July 23rd also. City are rumored to be setting up a blockbuster match against Bayern Munich in New York in early August, what could well be the game of the summer.

Portugal announced that FIFA player of the year Cristiano Ronaldo, and his Portugal teammates will play two warm-up games in the USA on their way to Brazil. Portugal will play Mexico in Boston on June 6 and then Ireland at MetLife Stadium in New York on June 10

Previously MLS has announced a pre-World Cup tournament that included defending world champions Spain and African champions Nigeria in a tournament called the ‘Road To Brazil‘ event, which will take place between  27 May and 10 June.

In addition Tottenham Hotspur have already confirmed their third United States tour in five years. Next summer Spurs will play the Seattle Sounders and the Chicago Fire. The Sounders game is set for Saturday 19 July while the Fire game will be played at Toyota Park on Saturday 26 July.

Earlier in December, MLS announced that World Club and European champions Bayern Munich will meet the MLS All-Stars August 6th in Portland as part of their preseason campaign. Bayern are expected to play three games during their US tour, but the other two opponents have not been named yet.

Only heard rumors that RM is coming to the US this summer. Nothing official yet


douglas May 1, 2011 at 11:31 am

there are rumors that either Valencia and Chichirito will not participate in this game
I would love to see both teams play but more important I’d like to see those two players in the field
how truth are these rumors?


David Wilson May 2, 2011 at 12:21 pm

We don’t know Douglas. Chichirito is playing for Mexico this summer in the gold cup and I believe the Copa America, so no word on whether he will make the US tour, but I believe that Fergie said he would be here for the US tour. Haven’t heard about Valenica missing it


william orozco May 2, 2011 at 3:45 pm

hey is messi from barcelona going to be in the us summer tour. ive heard rumors that he is not. do you have any information


David Wilson May 3, 2011 at 3:22 pm

Jamie June 9, 2011 at 2:21 pm

David Wilson June 30, 2011 at 10:09 am

Not sure John. It hasn’t been announced. barca will give him a break after the Copa America’s. The question is whether it is after the US tour or before it


zalan August 26, 2011 at 11:29 am

i love soccer


GTP June 23, 2012 at 5:57 pm

I would like to know if the ‘A’ team will be playing for Chelsea when they play AC Milan on July 28 in Miami? Will the stars like Lampard, Cahill, Torres, Terry be in the line-up?


David June 24, 2012 at 4:27 pm

Lampard, Cahill and hazard should all be part of the U.S. tour as they did not play in the Euros. Terry and Torres I am not sure about


gunna July 15, 2012 at 8:35 pm

i doubt any euros guys will be seeing too many minutes


David July 15, 2012 at 9:43 pm

Looks like we will see them for the games late July and certainly for the August games


Aaron July 6, 2012 at 10:23 am

Do you know if there is a list like this for friendlies in Europe? I’m going to be traveling this summer and really want to attend a match


Lisa January 9, 2013 at 9:20 pm

is there a website that gives a listing of friendlies to be played in the USA this summer?


David January 11, 2013 at 10:43 am

We will update this page with that information Lisa when games are announced. At the moment, no tour dates have been announced.


Steve February 12, 2013 at 7:33 pm

I personally am not an MLS fan, but I would like to see the “all stars” take on Munich, AC Milan or Inter. That would mean those clubs are in the States for a couple weeks this summer.


David February 12, 2013 at 9:19 pm

Totally agree Steve. Would love to see some of the top German sites come and tour the U.S.


Rosario April 10, 2013 at 8:30 pm

Anyone from Serie A coming to the U.S this summer ?


David April 15, 2013 at 3:32 pm

At the moment there has been no announcement Rosario about any Serie A teams touring this summer


larry April 17, 2013 at 8:57 pm

I didnt see SF mentioned but it was brought up in the 1st statement & who would be playing in SF & would it be at AT&T, the Stick, Stanford, or Buck shaw aka santa clara


David April 18, 2013 at 8:12 am

Good question Larry. It has not been announced where in SF they will play. Same with Indianapolis.


Andy April 18, 2013 at 2:47 am

My buddy and I had a discussion about the ICC, and were wondering if you could settle debates. First I made the argument that ICC will be just a preseason tournament for these teams, and comparable to other preseason “tournaments” across the world, he on the other hand, said the ICC would become as big as Europa League for these teams. Also I mentioned the fact that the ICC is no more than a showcase, and a warmup for these teams, while he disagreed, saying that eventually this would grow and become as big of a deal for these teams as the Europa League, so can you please end our debates, and explain what the ICC will be, and what it will be in the future.


David April 18, 2013 at 8:18 am

The ICC will always just be a preseason tournament Andy. Teams will use it to get ready for the start of their domestic season.

The only way it can grow in statue beyond that is if the financial incentive to win the ICC grows. If say Real Madrid would get £10m or £20m for winning the ICC for example, then that becomes serious revenue, especially under Uefa’s Financial Fair Play rules.

The problem with that scenario is generating enough revenue from the tournament to pay that kind of money to winners. If they can sell the ICC as a Champions League Elite tournament, and sell TV rights around the world, they might be able to pull it off over time.


Yafet April 28, 2013 at 8:01 pm

What are the remaining teams in the ICC?


David April 28, 2013 at 11:33 pm

They wil be announced on May 7


mitchell April 29, 2013 at 6:25 am

I would love to watch protugal vs brazil in boston on step 9th when would these tickets go on sale ?


David April 29, 2013 at 7:48 pm

I would expect them to go on sale late June, early July Mitchell


Gabby April 29, 2013 at 1:21 pm

What are the chances that Juve, will be coming to San Francisco? And when will it be announced? Thank you!


David April 29, 2013 at 7:47 pm

Schedule will be announced on May 7 Gabby. Either Inter or Juve will play in San Fran. Just don’t know which one yet.


Steven May 5, 2013 at 3:44 pm

Any word of teams coming to montreal? I still have my ticket for the July 31st juve vs psg game that never happened because of the supercoppa think any teams will be coming? Or to Toronto maybe?


David May 6, 2013 at 10:40 pm

Have not heard. The ICC is supposed to be May 7, so hopefully we will get more details on who is coming over and where they are playing


Yafet May 8, 2013 at 8:45 am

Any news on the teams participating?


Juvi May 8, 2013 at 1:55 pm

Any news on the decision of the last 4 teams?


ray May 8, 2013 at 7:38 pm

David May 9, 2013 at 10:46 am

Still waiting for news for ICC. One name that I do hear is coming is Galatasaray. I would expect that at least one Premier League side will be included (Spurs?)
