AC Milan v Inter Milan in Boston this summer

AC Milan will play Inter Milan in an exhibition game at Foxborough, Mass., on July 26, just the third meeting outside Italy between the city rivals. The match at Gillette Stadium will come on the final day of the World Football Challenge, a four-team tournament that also includes England’s Chelsea and Mexico’s Club America.

“It’s going to be a good opportunity for AC Milan to understand how much Beckham was instrumental in putting AC Milan back on the map in the U.S.,” AC Milan organizing director Umberto Gandini said during a news conference Tuesday.

The only times the teams met outside Italy were in Chiasso, Switzerland, in 1908 and at Yankee Stadium in 1969.

Inter opens the tournament July 19 against Club America at Stanford Stadium in California. Inter then plays Chelsea two days later at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, Calif.

AC Milan, a seven-time European champion, faces Club America on July 22 at the Georgia Dome and meets Chelsea two days later at M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore. Chelsea at Club America play July 26 in one of the first events at the Dallas Cowboys’ new stadium.
