Seven of Europe’s biggest clubs will join the Los Angeles Galaxy in the eight-team Guinness International Champions Cup, which kicks off on Saturday, July 27 and culminates on Thursday, August 8 (all times BST).

The format for this tournament is an elimination one, with four quarter-finals followed by two semi-finals, a third-place play-off and the final itself. However, the losing teams will continue to appear in the competition with fifth-place and seventh-place play-offs also scheduled.

Taking part are Chelsea, Inter Milan, Juventus, Everton, Real Madrid, LA Galaxy, AC Milan and Valencia, with those final two teams meeting in the only tie that will not take place on American soil.

Milan and Valencia kick things off at the Mestalla on July 27, and all eyes will then turn to the United States as Juventus face Everton in San Francisco on August 1, while Chelsea take on Inter Milan in Indianapolis and Real Madrid tackle the LA Galaxy in Phoenix on August 2.

The semi-finals are scheduled for August 4 as the winners of Juventus v Everton and Real Madrid v LA Galaxy meet in Los Angeles, while the winners of AC Milan v Valencia and Chelsea v Inter Milan clash in New York.

Also taking place on August 4 are the semi-finals for the fifth-place and seventh-place play-off. The losing team from the Juventus v Everton match takes on the losing side from the Real Madrid v Los Angeles Galaxy in Los Angeles, while the loser from the AC Milan v Valencia match takes on the loser of the Chelsea v Inter Milan tie in New York.

The Sun Life Stadium in Miami will then play host to both the final and all three play-off games over the course of August 7-9.
