ICC Singapore set for Arsenal, PSG and Atletico's arrival

As the only Asian stop for the International Champions Cup (ICC), Singapore will welcome fans coming from the region to watch their favourite teams.

Since 2013, the ICC has been recognised as a world-class tournament that transforms the pre-season tour for the world's biggest and best football clubs. This year is the second time this competition is held in Singapore, after its expansion into Southeast Asia in 2017.

ts award-winning National Stadium, with its iconic dome roof, is one example of its infrastructural development in that direction. The stadium sits within the Sports Hub – an integrated sports, entertainment and lifestyle hub that also houses the Indoor Stadium, the OCBC Aquatic Centre and the Kallang Wave Mall. 

It was in this stadium that Inter Milan defeated both Bayern Munich and Chelsea last year, and it is here that the three teams for this year’s ICC will play. The Gunners will be gunning for revenge when they meet 2018 Europa League champion Atlético de Madrid in the kick-off match for the Singapore leg of ICC on 26 July. They were booted out of the Europa League by the Spanish giants during the semi-final stage in May.

The English team will then battle it out against PSG on 28 July to settle a long-running tie. Three out of the four previous meetings between these two have ended in draws, so it is about time for the better team to emerge.

The closing match for this leg of the ICC will give fans an extraordinary treat. Though hugely successful, PSG and Atlético de Madrid have only ever played each other to a draw in 2009. Their match on 30 July will be the second time these two titans are going up against each other. It is a match not to be missed.

Monday, 30 July 2018 Paris Saint-Germain vs Atlético de Madrid
