FOX Soccer Near Deal to Show New Soccer Tournament in US Beginning This Summer: The Nightly EPL

 

FOX Soccer is reportedly working on a deal to televise a brand-new soccer tournament that will launch this summer featuring eight prominent teams playing exhibition matches around the United States, with the final to be played at Miami’s Sun Life Stadium in early August, according to reports in Sports Illustrated and Sports Business Journal.

Details are sketchy (a press conference has been scheduled for tomorrow), but teams reportedly interested in participating include Real Madrid, LA Galaxy and Juventus. One or more teams from England and Germany are also expected to compete.

The single-elimination tournament is named the International Champions Cup and is being spearheaded by Miami Dolphins owner Stephen Ross. The winning team in the tournament will reportedly receive $1 million in prize money.

The tournament will be featured on FOX Soccer this summer, while FOX Sports 1 will televise the matches in the summer of 2014 and 2015.

RSE Ventures is also organizing the pair of Manchester City-Chelsea friendlies in the US in May as well as the friendlies between Spain and Haiti plus Spain and Ireland.
