Pre-sale tickets for all matches, except the August 3 double-header in Los Angeles, are available today, May 29 and will be made available to the general public Friday, May 31 with the exception of Indianapolis where tickets will be available to the general public starting on Tuesday, June 4. Ticket information for the matches in Los Angeles will be released later today at a 1 p.m. PT press conference at Dodger Stadium. Fans can visit purchase tickets.

FOX Soccer will be televising 11 of the 12 games live with presumably the July 27 match in Spain the one game that FOX won’t televise. Sirius XM, meanwhile, will broadcast the games on radio in the United States.

Personally, I’m extremely excited at the rare chance of seeing all eight of these teams playing in my neighborhood (Miami). It’s a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to see many of the best teams in the world warming up for the new season. Plus, the fact that so many European teams are coming over to the United States is an excellent indication of the growth of the game in the States, the investment by Miami Dolphins owner Stephen Ross and the potential economic windfall that clubs can receive by expanding their brand in the United States.

Which matches are you planning on going to? How excited are you about the tournament? Tell us in the comments section below.

    Exciting mix of clubs and cities but I’m a little confused by the Dodger Stadium choice for LA when the city has three stadiums with proper rectangular pitches in the HDC, the Coliseum, and the Rose Bowl.

    • Linette says:

      Exactly. The Rose Bowl holds a lot of people and when Chelsea and Inter played, the attendance was over 80k! I’d think that was a better option!

    • saywhat says:

      The Dodgers are paying the most money to have the event there. That’s why.
      Also, I know dodger stadium is hard to get in and out of (traffic), but not as bad as the rose bowl and coliseum…..

  2. Rachel says:

    I was so excited about this tournament. I couldnt believe Indianapolis actually got chosen as a host since soccer barely exists here. Then we get my least favourite team. I cant stand chelsea and thier racist captain! Just great. I dont even want to go now after being so excited about disappointing.

    • krazymunky says:

      and a homewrecker!

    • inRachelsMouth says:

      your comments are completely and utterly moronic. you should think before you speak. do you even follow football. have you sat down and ever actually watched a full match before? for you to say john terry is racist really shows your ignorance. you should think before you speak. which incident are you referring too? when he was provoked by anton? have you seen what anton was saying to him before he said anything?

      • Tim says:

        Stop apologizing for Terry. The guy is an awful human being, at minimum. Rachel is entitled to her opinion, and your blind love of Chelsea gives you no standing to criticize her comment.

        • AndLester says:

          I was dissapointed when Terry was doing the nasty on Wayne Bridge. But Terry is not a racist. You have to imagine what Anton Ferdinand was doing. Making tasteless comments about very personal things. Terry just picked the wrong words. He should have decked him then everyone apart from the ferdinands, Rachel, and Wayne Bridge would be OK with it…

        • Boss says:

          What? Tim, your just as pathetic. You and the Indy girl can take your race and class warfare somewhere else! This is a soccer board, please exit your Obama Coma and get lost.

    • Boss says:

      Pathetic comment! I’m not even a Chelsea fan, but your PC diatribe is cowardly and false.

  3. John says:

    Really looking forward to coming over to The States to watch Everton again.

  4. Alan Pardew's part says:

    Being a South Florida guy, I’m pretty excited to have these cats come on down. Not a huge fan of any of these teams but you can’t dent the quality and the opportunity. Hopefully the tix $$ will be right on.

  5. Bruce Kopp says:

    What time is the Miami news conference today to announce the matchups and dates of the competition?

  6. christian says:

    More great stuff for the NYC area. I might have to fly down south to see the final.

  7. Roberto says:

    Why are the final 2 days scheduled on a tuesday and wednesday? What are they thinking??

    • The Gaffer says:

      The clubs need to get back to Europe to prepare for the new season, and many of them have friendlies already scheduled for the weekend after Tues/Wednesday.

  8. Tayo says:

    Wish they could come to Fedex Field in Maryland but if there is a game in NY, I could go with my friends, well hopefully its on a weekend.

  9. AT&T Park, Dodger Stadium, Yankee Stadium, Fenway Park, etc. are too narrow for “good football”.

    I can’t see Juve vs Everton drawing more than 20,000 at AT&T Park.

    How many times in a row have Real Madrid play the LA Galaxy? This matchup is way past its shelf life.

  10. Brian Spalliero says:

    I can’t seem to find the Juve vs Everton tickets via the link. I understand they can’t be purchased for a couple of days, but the match isn’t even listed on ticketmaster. Anyone link it?

  11. Tom says:

    My family switched to comcast and I didn’t realize you had to have additional packages to get Fox Soccer. Will FOXSoccerGO be running by the start of this tourney and would it have these games? And would I even be able to sign in as an “authenticated subscriber” since we don’t have that package? I assume once it switches to FOXSports1 everyone can get that.

    • The Gaffer says:

      You’ll need FOX Soccer to watch the ICC games. No decision has been made yet regarding the other questions.

  12. Stacey says:

    Does anyone else have an issue with “legal” ticket scalpers?! Ticket scalpers are gaining access to the private pre-sales and purchasing thousands upon thousands of tickets. Ticketmaster prices for the Chelsea vs. Man City game in Indy range from $30 to $135. Ticket scalpers, who unfairly access the tickets before the general public, are selling the tickets for threefold or more. For instance, check stubhub (actually, any of the large ticket scalper sites). The $30 tickets are now $145 and up! The $135 tickets are now going for $250- 525! You may say that this does not have anything to do with you since you plan to buy your ticket through Ticketmaster. The REALITY is that you will more than likely have to go through a ticket scalper to be able to attend the game. For example, the Chelsea vs. Man City game in St. Louis sold out within 20 minutes of opening to the general public. The general public DID NOT buy all of those tickets. Ticket scalpers did during the pre-general-public sale. Why should you have to pay more than the tickets are worth so that ticket scalpers prosper at your expense?! There is a great need for Reform which prohibits this activity. Know your laws:… and Push for REFORM. We do not have to take this!! —American Soccer Lover Pushes for Reform
