|Real Madrid v Celtic FC, August 11th|
Lincoln Financial Field - Philadelphia
According to Philly.com, it looks like the chief operating officer of the Philadelphia Eagles made it official that Lincoln Financial Field will be playing host to Real Madrid and Celtic FC on Saturday August 11th as part of the World Football Challenge. This will be the second year in a row that Real Madrid make a stop in the "City of Brotherly Love", having played the Union at the Linc in front of 55,000 fans. Tickets for the match go on sale Monday June 4th via ticketmaster.
With news of this match the summer tour plans for Real Madrid become more clear, and more marquee. With matches in Los Angeles, Las Vegas, New York City, and now Philly, the Spanish super team will play four friendlies in just 9 days stretching from coast to coast. There is an outside chance of a fifth match to be added after the Philly date, but right now it looks like that will be it for Real on their US Summer Tour.
