July 26th & 29th
The International Champions Cup Women’s Tournament kicks-off this summer, as four of the best club teams in the world compete to become the inaugural winner of this exciting new competition.
The Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens will host three of the finest teams from Europe, with England’s Manchester City Women and French duo Paris Saint-Germain Women and Olympique Lyonnais taking to the field, and they will be joined by National Women’s Soccer League leader North Carolina Courage.
Manchester City was the 2016 Women's Super League winners and Paris Saint-Germain is a two-time Coupe de France Féminine victor, while Olympique Lyonnais has been crowned the best team in Europe for the last three years in a row.
The star-studded event will take place between July 26th and July 29th and kicks off a week-long celebration of soccer in Miami, as four of the biggest men’s teams in the world will also be taking part in the male version of the International Champions Cup. Germany’s FC Bayern will face Manchester City on July 28 and Manchester United take on Real Madrid on July 31.
The Hard Rock Stadium has been a host venue for the International Champions Cup before, having hosted two of the biggest derby matches in European soccer, with Liverpool and Manchester United battling it out in 2014 and Real Madrid and Barcelona facing off in the first ever El Clasico match in the United States.
The inaugural International Champions Cup Women’s Tournament starts with NC Courage versus Paris Saint-Germain Women on July 26th at 6.15pm (EDT) and will be followed by Olympique Lyonnais against Manchester City Women later that night at 9pm.
