In a late surprise for Barcelona fans in the US, the La Liga champions have announced that they will play two games in the US against Napoli this summer as part of the first LaLiga Serie A Cup.

Barça are taking advantage of the Spanish Super Cup changes, which will now take place in Saudi Arabia in January, to extend their preseason tour.

The first match will take place in Miami on August 7th before the two clubs head to Ann Arbor Stadium at the University of Michigan on August 10th.

Barcelona are widely expected to sign both Antoine Griezmann and Neymar this summer. If that happens, then both superstars would be expected to make their debuts in the US alongside Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez and the other big summer signing Frenkie de Jong

As if that was not big enough Jurgen Klopp will bring the Champions League winners stateside to play Borussia Dortmund at Notre Dame Stadium in South Bend, Ind, vs. Sevilla at Fenway Park and finally they will wrap up their tour against Sporting CP at Yankee Stadium.

With little travel between the games, Liverpool are once again expected to conduct their preseason camp at Harvard University on Boston.

In addition to Liverpool, some of Europe’s biggest clubs will once again tour the US this summer as part of the 2019 International Champions Cup. Add in the Gold Cup, some high-profile friendlies and the Concacaf Nations League this fall and 2019 promises to have a little bit of everything for fans.

Bayern Munich’s date with Real Madrid headlines the International Champions Cup’s U.S. schedule, but there are a number on interesting matches set to take place stateside this summer.

In addition to that match, Real Madrid’s clash with Atletico Madrid on July 26 in MetLife Stadium will be the first Madrid derby outside of Europe. Other highlights include Real Madrid vs. Arsenal and Bayern Munich vs. AC Milan.

The teams involved in the US version of the International Champions Cup are Real Madrid, Arsenal, Roma, Bayern Munich, Atletico Madrid, Benfica and Chivas.
