We reported the rumor early last week that Real Madrid and AC Milan would face off at Yankee Stadium on August 8th as part of the World Football Challenge; that news was made official today. AC Milan director Umberto Gandini posted this on Twitter this morning:
"AC Milan and Real Madrid will play a friendly match on August 8 at Yankee Stadium in NYC. Won 16 Champions titles combined"
He went on to confirm that they will also be playing 2012 Champions League winners Chelsea at Sun Life Stadium in Miami on July 28th, but the majority of the population knew this for the last few weeks.
All the ticket information, dates, and locations for these and 40 other summer friendlies in North America can be found on our "2012 Summer Friendly" tab on our homepage.
