Barcelona, Man United, Real Madrid headline International Champions Cup field

The International Champions Cup is set to return to the U.S. this summer, bringing some of the world’s top teams stateside for friendly action.

Barcelona, Manchester United and Real Madrid headline an eight-team field set to play across the U.S. from July 19-30. Joining the field are Italian sides Juventus and Roma, French giant Paris Saint-Germain and English contenders Tottenham and Manchester City.

The tournament is headlined by several rivalry matches, as a Manchester Derby is part of the schedule alongside the previously-announced El Clasico in Miami.

Each participating team will take part in three matches across the U.S. with regulation wins counting as three points while ties will go straight to penalty kicks. The winner of the shootout will receive two points while the loser will receive one. The team with the most points at the end of the tournament will be named champion.

This year’s iteration of the ICC is the fifth installment of the tournament with Real Madrid, Manchester United and Paris Saint-Germain securing titles in previous years.
