LA Galaxy being considered for International Champions Cup with Real Madrid, Juventus

MLS champions LA Galaxy could compete in an international tournament this summer according to various reports.

It has been suggested that the back-to-back title winners could be one of eight teams who will take part in the International Champions Cup which would begin in late July.

The Sports Business Journal, SI.com and the Miami Herald are suggesting that the tournament could take place in both Europe and the USA with the final to be held in Miami in early August.

Real Madrid, Inter Milan and Juventus are among the clubs being touted as possible contenders with prize money of $1million up for grabs.

RSE Ventures, who is owned by Miami Dolphins majority owner Stephen Ross, is believed to be at the forefront of the proposed competition. Charlie Stillitano of Relevant Sports, the public relations division of the company, said they were looking to bring top clubs to Miami this summer.

“We are trying to bring a bit of that Champions League magic to pre-season,” Stillitano said to Reuters.

“We know it is not the Champions League but managers have told us they can’t go through pre-season playing games that mean nothing.”
