'El Clasico' Match Between Real Madrid, Barcelona Coming to Miami This Summer

Raul Real Madrid not Barcelona are comeback kings

Barcelona and Real Madrid will face off in a pre-season friendly on American soil later this year as part of the International Champions Cup. A Friday press conference on Miami Beach will announce the game and events surrounding it. Tickets, which go on sale next week, will start around $125, according to sources, and lower-bowl center seats will likely go for upwards of $500.

The La Liga giants have only faced themselves once outside Spain in history - a match in 1982 in Venezuela, which Madrid won 1-0 thanks to a Vicente del Bosque goal.

The match at the home of the Miami Dolphins is expected to include two of football's greatest ever players: current Ballon d'Or-holder Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi, the five-time victor of the award.

"On 29 July, FC Barcelona will play against Real Madrid in Miami during the club's pre-season preparations in the United States", the club said in a statement today.


Ross flew in his private plane to Spain on December 1 along with Matt Higgins (RSE Ventures CEO), Tom Garfinkel (Dolphins CEO) and Charlie Stillitano (Relevent chairman).

After several more weeks of calls and negotiations, they reached a deal.

Real Madrid vice president Emilio Butragueno added: "We are fully aware of how passionate people are about futbol here in Miami".
