This summer we will enjoy a great match. We know it’s time for friendly games and pre-season stages in order to get ready for the long season. However, this time we will see one El Clásico in July. It will take place 29th of July in Miami and it will be part of the International Champions Cup.
The game was unveiled on Wednesday in New York City and all the American fans are already crazy looking for tickets. The cheapest ticket costs 200$ and the most expensive one 4.500$. The game will be held in Hard Rock Stadium of Miami, where Miami Dolphins play their game.
This will be the second time in the history that Real Madrid and Barcelona play a friendly game outside Spanish borders. The first one was in 1982 in the Venezuelan President Cup. Real Madrid won the game thanks to a net scored by Vicente del Bosque.
Overall, Real Madrid and Barcelona played 37 friendly games in their history. The last one was 25 years ago, the 11th of September of 1991. The game finished 1-1. Most of these friendly games took part in the first half of the 20th century. With the big rivalry between these two clubs, it’s very rare to see them face to face without anything important in between.
Obviously, this is the first time Real Madrid and Barcelona will play in US soil. We can understand the big expectation that this game has arised between the football fans. Now, the American citizens are able to see their stars during the summer thanks to the International Champions Cup. This tournament started some years ago and the big European teams play against each other during the summer in different American cities. Last summer, for instance, Real Madrid played against PSG, Chelsea and Bayern Munich.
