Miami to host El Clasico fixture later this year

1:57 | Planet Futbol        Barcelona's Champions League comeback is tough to comprehend

Arguably the world's greatest club soccer rivalry is headed to American soil for one night only.

Spanish arch-rivals Real Madrid and Barcelona will meet in a pre-season friendly in Miami on July 29 in the first "Clasico" to take place outside Spain for 35 years.

The formal announcement was made during a press conference on Friday that featured legends from both sides such as Hristo Stocihkov and Roberto Carlos.

Trump Should Accept the Realities on the Ground in Syria
Turkey said it had "neutralized" 71 YPG fighters this week and occupies more than 2,000 square km in northern Syria. Maintaining peace between the groups in Manbij will be crucial if they will work together in the battle for Raqqa.

But organisers wanted to celebrate the renovation of the Hard Rock Stadium, the home of National Football League side Miami Dolphins, and believe an El Clasico clash would be able to attract thousands of fans to Miami.

The La Liga giants have only faced themselves once outside Spain in history - a match in 1982 in Venezuela, which Madrid won 1-0 thanks to a Vicente del Bosque goal.

Fans from all over the United States, Latin America, and Europe are expected to travel to Miami for the big event, the marquee match of the International Champions Cup.

Tickets will go on sale on the ICC's website on March 20, three days after an exclusive presale.

Ross flew in his private plane to Spain on December 1 along with Matt Higgins (RSE Ventures CEO), Tom Garfinkel (Dolphins CEO) and Charlie Stillitano (Relevent chairman).
