international champions cup 600x443 Chelsea Set Up Dream Final Against Real Madrid in International Champions Cup: Nightly Soccer Report

Chelsea’s Kevin de Bruyne and Andre Schurrle scored against AC Milan tonight in front of more than 39,000 fans in New York to send Jose Mourinho’s side into a dream final against Real Madrid in the International Champions Cup. The final will be played on Wednesday night at Sun Life Stadium in Miami to determine whether Chelsea or Jose Mourinho’s former team Real Madrid will win the inaugural International Champions Cup trophy.

The match-up between Jose Mourinho and Carlo Ancelotti is mouthwatering. But then you’ve also got some of the best players in the world including Cristiano Ronaldo, Fernando Torres, Xabi Alonso, Sergio Ramos, Eden Hazard, Frank Lampard, Oscar, Juan Mata and more.

Tickets are still available starting at $75 for a two-day pass to see all four games featuring world-class teams. Plus, included in the price of admission, is a Fan Fest on both days from 4-9pm where there’ll be food, alcohol, music and a chance to welcome the players as they enter the stadium.

If you don’t live in the area, the games will be shown live on television.

With Valencia defeating Inter Milan 4-0 earlier today, the schedule of matches for Tuesday and Wednesday in Miami are all set as follows (all times Eastern):

Tuesday, August 6

Juventus vs Inter Milan, 6:30pm — Seventh place game

Everton vs Valencia, 9pm — Fifth place game

Wednesday, August 7

    Ok. I will try to take this tournament seriously.

    • Christopher Harris says:

      It’s been a lot of fun so far. The games have been far more competitive than some of the sleepy friendlies of yesteryear.

  2. JeffJ says:

    I believe the Everton/AC Milan game is the third place game (since they were losers in the semis). The LA Galaxy/Valencia game is for 5th place.

  3. Sam says:

    oh man, I’m going both days

  4. Matt Jones says:

    A lot of Everton fans travelling out to the game have been furious about this. The organizers have seemingly changed the rules mid-tournament in order to accomodate LA Galaxy in the 3rd place game (despite the pre-tournament tree and subsequent adevertisements suggesting Everton would be in the 3rd place game)

    The result has been a lot of Evertonians with tickets and flights for the wrong game! Pretty poor from the organisers really.

  5. Michael Harrington says:

    Wish NBC would get off their behinds and let us know which channels would be carrying what.

  6. muhammed ibrahim says:
