Tuesday the International Champions Cup game at Levi’s Stadium was announced. On Saturday August 4 at 5pm AC Milan and Barcelona will meet at the home of the NFL San Francisco 49ers in Santa Clara.
The teams are no strangers to the field, as the Italian club has played against English club Liverpool in 2016, while the Spanish/Catalonian team played in 2015 against Manchester United, who will return as well to play against the San Jose Earthquakes days earlier on July 22.
Right now fans can sign up at http://www.internationalchampionscup.com/ before the general public ticket sales begin on May 1. This match is expected to attract a capacity crowd at the Bay Area’s premier venue.
