How do I get tickets?
Which are the best match-ups?
In this tournament, all of the match-ups are considered to be top of the line match-ups since all of the teams are top dogs from Europe. However, one of the most anticipated matches is the Real Madrid, the defending champion of this tournament and currently the UEFA Champions League champion, versus AS Roma, who is the elite Italian team in this tournament. Roma came in second place last year in Italy, but it is the strongest Italian team in this tournament and is predicted to give Real Madrid quite a game. Also, Manchester City versus Liverpool FC will be a good match since these two teams are rivals in the English Premier league.
Why should I attend?
One must attend because this is some of the most elite soccer in one tournament. What better way to spend a summer than to watch top soccer clubs battle it out for one title? Even if you don’t like soccer right now, the Guinness International Champions Cup will change that after seeing the best play against the best.
