ICC: Manchester City v. Liverpool at Yankee Stadium, Olympiakos v. AC Milan at Citifield

Manchester City v Liverpool

In what is becoming a summer tradition, the Guinness International Champions Cup returns to New York City with two friendlies on tap.

This year, Yankee Stadium will host showdown of fierce rivals when Manchester City take on Liverpool on Wednesday, July 30th. Not to be outdone, Citifield will hold it’s own match catering to the ethnic communities of the area when Greek powerhouse Olympiakos takes on AC Milan on Thursday, July 24th.

Both fixtures will feature teams from the tournament’s “Group B” division, which will includes all of the above participants. “Group A” features Real Madrid, Manchester United, Inter Milan and Roma. The winner of either group will advance to the tournament final at Sun Life Stadium in Miami on a date to be determined.

Last year, Yankee Stadium played host to two international friendlies including Manchester City v. Chelsea and Spain against Ireland. Previously, they showcased Chelsea v. PSG and Real Madrid against AC Milan breaking a near 30 year lull between soccer matches at a Yankee venue.

Citifield has also been an active participant in soccer friendlies, hosting international friendlies like Israel v. Honduras, Greece v. Ecuador and Juventus v. Club America.

Neither have ever participated in the ICC tournament.

Exclusive pre-sale tickets for most matchups will be available beginning on Thursday, Feb. 20 at 1 p.m. ET while general public will have access to tickets Feb. 22 at 10 a.m. ET. For venue-specific ticket information please visit www.internationalchampionscup.com.
