You can add another game to the long list of summer matches being played in the United States.
Relevent Sports announced on Tuesday that Greek club Olympiacos will take on AC Milan at Citi Field in New York on July 24. The game will be part of this year’s Guinness International Champions Cup.
“The large Greek and Italian populations in New York will make this game an international spectacle,” said Relevent Sports Chief Executive Officer Charlie Stillitano in a statement. “Olympiacos has not played a game in the New York area in decades and we anticipate a sellout with these two Champions League heavyweights.”
The Guinness International Champions Cup is an eight-team tournament this year and it will also feature Real Madrid, Manchester United, Manchester City, Liverpool, AS Roma and Inter Milan.
Matches will be held all across the United States, including in Chicago, Philadelphia, Washington D.C. and Miami.
