On Monday night, England’s two most successful clubs descend on Miami for the final of the Guinness International Champions Cup as Manchester United battle against Liverpool to determine who will be the 2014 tournament winners.
Before the International Champions Cup kicked off this summer, there were so many interesting concoctions of who could make the final. Would 2013 ICC champions Real Madrid play Premier League champions Manchester City? Would we see a Manchester derby at Sun Life Stadium? Or was an all Serie A final in store?
As it turns out, the final pits together the two most iconic English clubs. It’ll be the first time that either team has ever played in Florida. More than 50,000 fans are expected for a clash of giants between the 5-time Champions League winners Liverpool (and 18 league titles) versus Manchester United, with 20 league titles and 3 Champions League trophies under its belt.
With the final two teams only being decided on Saturday night after the completion of Group A and B matches, limited tickets are still available for a once in a lifetime opportunity to see Manchester United play Liverpool in Miami.
Plus the Guinness International Champions Cup Finals will feature DJ Martin Garrix as the halftime entertainment. Garrix’s song “Animals” has been a mainstay on 2014 charts as one of the biggest EDM tracks. The halftime entertainment also will feature a laser light show, fireworks and LED video mapping.
Both United and Liverpool have been fielding strong lineups, so Monday night’s game (8pm ET) could see several major stars play such as Wayne Rooney, Steven Gerrard, Juan Mata, Daniel Sturridge, Ander Herrera, Raheem Sterling, Javier Hernandez, Lucas Leiva and many more.
