“We are extremely excited to come back to Levi’s® Stadium to play an ICC match for the second consecutive year,” said Charlie Stillitano, Chairman of Relevent Sports. “The Bay Area has been a tremendous host over the years and we expect nothing different in 2016. Liverpool and AC Milan met for a spectacular ICC match in Charlotte two years ago and we expect the same type of match this year.”
This is the second consecutive season that Levi’s® Stadium has hosted an International Champions Cup match. Last year, FC Barcelona and Manchester United squared off in front of a sold-out crowd of more than 69,000 that saw Manchester United defeat the Champions league winners, 3-1.
The 2016 International Champions Cup will run from July 23 – August 13 and play matches across the United States and throughout the world. Each team will play three contests and the club with the most points at the end of the tournament will be crowned champion. Each win in regulation will result in three points and a tie will go straight to a shootout; the winning team in a shootout will receive two points and the losing team will receive one.
