The World Football Challenge is returning for another slate of international club friendlies across North America.

As of now, the only matches officially part of the WFC are Chelsea's clash with the Seattle Sounders at CenturyLink Field on July 18 and Liverpool's meeting with Toronto FC at Rogers Centre on July 21. The rest of the games will happen in the following weeks up until August 11.

Tottenham, AC Milan, Roma, Aston Villa and Schalke are other clubs who have been confirmed for summer friendlies in the United States, but none of them were included in MLS' official announcement of the WFC on Tuesday.

Last year, Real Madrid captured the WFC ahead of clubs such as Manchester United, Manchester City, Juventus, Barcelona, Chivas de Guadalajara and Club America.

Are you excited about another slate of summer friendlies? Satisfied with the quality of European clubs already scheduled to come to America? Did you attend WFC games last year, and do you hope to do the same in 2012?
