You can add Juventus FC to the list of teams partaking in this year's World Football Challenge.

Serie A champions Juventus have agreed to take part in this summer's tournament, and will travel to RFK Stadium in Washington, D.C. to take on D.C. United in a friendly on July 28, United announced on Monday.

Juventus, who is fresh off of an undefeated season which saw them win their 28th league title, will also take on La Liga champions Real Madrid at Sam Boyd Stadium in Las Vegas on Aug. 5 as part of the competition.

What do you think of Juventus being added to the 2012 World Football Challenge? Planning on going to United's game vs. Juventus? Already thinking of an excuse to use to be able to go to Las Vegas for the Juventus-Real Madrid match?

    Juve is a fun team to watch, saw them play Chivas in Raleigh during last year’s WFC.

    Tyler: You saw it in-person? Are you still sweating? For everyone else, the high was 102F that day @ RDU and STILL over 90 at KO.

    Hopefully, this will be at least a little cooler.
