As we recieved the informations today officially from Chelsea Football Club, Michigan Stadium will be the venue for the pre-season International Champions Cup match against Real Madrid on Saturday 30 July.
The stadium, home to the University of Michigan college teams and located in the city of Ann Arbor, is nicknamed ‘The Big House’ and is the largest in America with a capacity of 107,601. It will provide a stunning setting for the second match of our pre-season tour of the US.
As they announced earlier this week, the Real Madrid fixture follows our meeting with Premier League rivals Liverpool at Pasadena’s Rose Bowl Stadium three days earlier. On Wednesday 3 August we will play AC Milan at the brand new US Bank Stadium in Minneapolis and each of our matches will be shown exclusively live on Chelsea TV.
The format will see 10 teams play three games and the club with the most points at the end of the tournament will be crowned champion.
Each win in normal time will result in three points and a draw will go straight to a penalty shootout. The winning team in a shootout will receive two points and the losing team will receive one.
All our summer tour matches will be live and exclusive on Chelsea TV in the UK and Ireland, with all the action and highlights available to view online around the world.
