Both Manchester United and Manchester City will take part in the preseason tournament, as will their English Premier League rival Liverpool. Both big clubs from Milan also are in the field, with Inter and AC Milan also joined by American-owned Roma. Spanish giant Real Madrid and the largest club in Greece, Olympiacos round out the field.
Matches will take place in Phoenix, Denver, Washington D.C., Charlotte, N.C., Dallas, Pittsburgh, Philadelphia, Chicago, New York/New Jersey and two additional venues with the final being hosted by Sun Life Stadium in Miami.
The teams will be split into two groups and will each play three matches before the group winners move onto the final stage.
Real Madrid, AC Milan and Inter took part in last year's event with Real Madrid winning the championship at Sun Life Stadium with a 3-1 win against Chelsea thanks to a brace from Ronaldo and a goal from Marcelo.
