Berkeley, California (EastBayDaily) — The Guinness International Champions Cup will be entering its fifth season and second under its current name. The tournament is held annually and features some of the best international club teams from around the world. This year, the eight teams that will be taking part in the competition come from the English Premier League, La Liga, Serie A, and Superleague Greece. The tournament will see teams like Real Madrid (the defending champion), Manchester City, Manchester United, Internazionale (or Inter Milan) and Real Madrid. In the case of Real Madrid and Internazionale, they will compete at California Memorial Stadium in Berkeley, Calif. on July 26th.
As members of Group A, these two teams will each begin their tournament with this match, and will look to gain momentum as they will then face Roma and Manchester United in later games. At the conclusion of the group stage, the winner of Group A will take on the winner of Group B to determine the champion. Real Madrid has a proven track record in this tournament, having won the past three titles under the current name and what it was previously known as, the World Football Challenge. These two teams will compete in this game at the home of the University of California Golden Bears. The venue originally opened in 1923 and can currently seat more than 62,000 fans for a game each day. The venue has hosted numerous events over the course of its history – sports, entertainment, politics, and more – and will add another massive event to its list of popular events when these two teams take to the pitch.
Inter Milan competes in Serie A in Italy and play their home games in Milan, Lombardy. They have played their entire history in the sport in the top Italian football league in the world and are the only team to be able to make that claim. They have won 30 domestic titles in their history. That figure includes 18 league titles, seven Coppa Italia crowns, and five Supercoppa Italiana titles. They have also recorded three UEFA Champions League titles and have also won three UEFA Cups, two Intercontinental Cups, and one FIFA Club World Cup title.
The defending champions from this tournament will look to continue their success in this tournament and it all begins with this matchup. For the players taking part in the action on this day, it may not be like winning the World Cup, but getting in the win column in this match could go a long way in defending their title.
Inter Milan will be led in this game by players from around the world including Jonathan from Brazil, Rodrigo Palacio from Argentina, and Marco Andreolli from Italy. On the opposite side of the pitch, Real Madrid will send stars that fans are more familiar with because of the World Cup including Cristiano Ronaldo and Pepe from Portugal, Sergio Ramos and Xabi Alonso from Spain, and Sami Khedira from Germany.
