For soccer fans who can’t wait until the European seasons start in a few weeks, ESPN has acquired different rights packages to three upcoming pre-season tournaments — the Emirates Cup, Audi Cup and International Champions Cup, which will feature teams such as Arsenal, Manchester City, Bayern Munich, Chelsea, Real Madrid and many other clubs.

The three tournaments ESPN will be televising are:

International Champions Cup

The International Champions Cup, which will feature eight of the top teams from around the world playing matches across the United States, will be televised on English-language television on FOX Soccer. But ESPN have picked up the Spanish-language rights to the tournament in addition to the Internet rights, so the games will be available on WatchESPN and ESPN Deportes.

The eight teams participating in the tournament are Chelsea, Everton, Real Madrid, Inter Milan, Juventus, LA Galaxy, AC Milan and Valencia.

Audi Cup

The annual Audi Cup hosted by Bayern Munich will be coming to the US television and Internet this summer featuring Bayern Munich, Manchester City, AC Milan and FC Sao Paulo.

Games will be shown on ESPN2, ESPN Deportes and WatchESPN.

Emirates Cup

Arsenal’s annual pre-season tournament at Emirates Stadium will be featured on ESPN Deportes and WatchESPN. The coverage will include live matches featuring Arsenal, Napoli, Galatasaray and FC Porto.
