AC Milan, Chelsea, Everton and Valencia join Guinness International Champions Cup

The Guinness International Champions Cup filled out its roster by announcing four more European teams to the summer tournament.
The Guinness International Champions Cup announced the final four teams which will take part in the U.S.-based summer tournament. AC Milan, Chelsea, Everton and Valencia join the previously-announced Inter, LA Galaxy, Juventus and Real Madrid.

The tournament begins on July 27 and will take place in Los Angeles, Phoenix, San Francisco, Indianapolis and New York. All eight teams will play in Miami's Sun Life Stadium, which will host a pair of double-headers in August.

Chelsea, which played a pair of friendlies with Manchester City in the United States this week, was the 2012 MLS All-Star opponent. The Blues are the reigning Europa League champions. Since 2005, they have won three league titles, four FA Cups and both the Champions League and Europa League.

Everton finished sixth in the Premier League before losing manager David Moyes to Manchester United. American Tim Howard tends goal for the Toffees, as he did when Everton took on the MLS All-Stars in 2009.

Valencia employs Mexican winger Andres Guardado. It sits fifth in the Spanish Liga and last won the title in 2004.

Milan sealed a Champions League berth on the last day of the season, clinching third in Italy. The Rossoneri, which won the last of their 18 Serie A titles in 2011, has conquered Europe seven times.
