Soccer World's Best In U.S. This Summer

The International Champions Cup is in its fifth season, and this is perhaps its strongest schedule yet.
The summer soccer tournament in the United States features an installment of the Clasico between Real Madrid and Barcelona in Miami on July 29, and the Manchester Derby on July 20 between Manchester United and Manchester City.
It is still to be determined where Man U will play Man City, but there is reason to believe it could be Yankee Stadium. Man City is joint owners with the Yankees of New York City Football Club, and Yankee Stadium has not had an ICC game since Man City played Liverpool in 2014, so they are due to have a game in this tournament.

FC Barcelona will be playing Juventus at MetLife Stadium on July 22, and AS Roma will be playing Tottenham Hotspur on July 25 at Red Bull Arena.
