Real Madrid v AC Milan in NYC

Real Madrid v AC Milan
August 8th at Yankee Stadium, NYC
(Multiple Sources)
UPDATE 05-23-12: AC Milan's director officially announced the match on Twitter this morning. Check out the latest information in our updated article.

I heard a rumor over the weekend from Steven Goff over at the Washington Post about a possible Real Madrid versus AC Milan match at Yankee Stadium on August 8th as part of the World Football Challenge. I did a little bit of digging this afternoon and after finding mentions of the match from both sides of the pond and multiple sources I am comfortable in calling this match as set so we have added it to our "2012 US Summer Friendly" page.

There were some rumors flying around that the two teams would play in Montreal instead of NYC as part of a four team match-up at Olympic Stadium on July 24th, but now it looks like it will be Paris St-Germain versus Montreal Impact on that date and the Real/Milan match pushed to the end of their US tours on August 8th in New York.

This would mean that the new Yankee Stadium would host soccer for the first time with Chelsea versus PSG on July 22nd and then follow it up two weeks later with Real/Milan. I would say that's quite an opportunity for anyone in NYC, or even on the east coast to check our two of the best friendlies schedule for this summer.
