The two most successful teams in European Cup football, with 15 winners trophies between them, will meet in New York as part of the World Football Challenge tournament.
Although the venue is still to be confirmed everything points to the clash taking place in the Yankee stadium, a modern arena constructed in 2009 and home to the New York Yankees baseball team. With a 54,200 capacity it can easily be converted into a football ground and will also host another match in the same tournament between Chelsea and Paris Saint-Germain on July 22.
The fixture will be the third organised by Madrid on their summer tour of the United States. The others are scheduled for August 2, when they take on David Beckham’s LA Galaxy at the Home Depot Center, and for three days later in Las Vegas where Juventus will be the opponents in the Sam Boyd Stadium.
