Many of the biggest clubs in the world have announced their plans to play summer friendlies in the USA in 2024, and that includes Real Madrid, Barcelona and AC Milan. Each of those clubs has an impressive following in the United States. Barcelona and Real Madrid are arguably the two most popular clubs in the world. Meanwhile, the impending appearances of both Christian Pulisic and Yunus Musah make Milan a must-watch soccer for fans in the United States.

Those three clubs join the likes of Manchester City, Chelsea, and Celtic in formally announcing friendlies in the United States this summer. Moreover, Arsenal, Liverpool and Manchester United have announced a slew of games across the United States. In conjunction with the Copa America, the summer of 2024 is action-packed in the United States.

Many of these games are part of the Soccer Champions Tour, the international collection of club friendlies that is returning to the United States. In 2023, the Soccer Champions Tour featured eight games with many of the same clubs. In 2024, fans in the United States will have the option to watch many of these matches that regularly draw massive crowds.
