Benfica vs AS Roma At Red Bull Arena, July 24
Red Bull Arena will host Portugal's S.L. Benfica for a match against Italian side AS Roma on Wednesday, July 24, promoted by Relevent Sports Group (RSG) as part of the 2019 International Champions Cup (ICC).
This year's tournament will host 12 of the best clubs in the world playing 18 matches across the United States, Europe and Asia. Benfica and Roma have previously played at Red Bull Arena, as Benfica faced off against Juventus last Summer in ICC action, and Roma took on Tottenham at RBA in 2017.
This will be the fourth time ICC action comes to Red Bull Arena. This year's ICC participants include past winners of UEFA Champions League and all the major European leagues and Liga MX.
"What began as a simple idea, is now a fixture on the soccer calendar," said RSG Executive Chairman Charlie Stillitano. "We were contacted by dozens of clubs wanting to be part of the ICC, recognizing the value of starting their season playing top competition in front of tens of thousands of passionate fans."
Matches are scheduled between July 16 and August 10 showcasing the world's elite soccer clubs, including teams from Premier League, Serie A, LaLiga, Bundesliga and Liga MX: Real Madrid; Manchester United; Tottenham Hotspur; Arsenal; AS Roma; Juventus; AC Milan; Inter; Atl├ętico de Madrid; FC Bayern; Benfica; and Chivas de Guadalajara.
