Charlotteâ€™s Bank of America Stadium will host one of the 2014 Guinness International Champions Cup this summer.
Kevin Langan, head coach of UNC Charlotteâ€™s menâ€™s soccer team, told the Charlotte Observer: â€śItâ€™s a wonderful coup for Charlotte.
â€śCharlotte and North Carolina have been among the countryâ€™s top spots for soccer for a long time. This is proof of that. It shows what kind of pull this city has to bring in a game like this.â€ť
This yearâ€™s version of the International Champions Cup sees Manchester United, Real Madrid, AC Milan, Inter Milan, AS Roma, Olympiakos, City and Liverpool come together between July 26 and August 4 across the USA.
