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.
