Rightly regarded as European royalty, seven-time European Cup winners AC Milan will be returning to America this summer to play in the 2019 edition of the International Champions Cup.
The Rossoneri will meet Bayern Munich in Kansas City before traveling east to Boston where they will meet Portuguese side Benfica. From there, Milan will travel to Cardiff Wales to meet Manchester United in another glamor friendly.
“It is the sixth time we participate in this beautiful summer competition” said Daniele Massaro during the event in New York
“There is a great desire for football here in the US, they want to grow in this sport and there is a lot of attention for European clubs: we saw it first-hand last summer when we played in Minneapolis, San Francisco and Los Angeles and we still see it today.
“I am proud to represent AC Milan, which continues to be among the most followed teams all over the world and which, also thanks to these tours, will further expand its fan base”.
Franco Baresi, during the event in Cardiff, added:
“When I arrived in Cardiff for the presentation of the ICC 2019 match we will play on August 3 against Manchester United, I thought about the tragedy that involved Emiliano Sala last January. My heart and that of everyone at AC Milan echoes the great fondness shown by the city and Cardiff City FC.
“Playing against Manchester United brings back memories of the great European challenges between these two clubs, especially the double semi-final of the 2007 UEFA Champions League, which led us to the final in Athens. Our desire is to offer, together with the Red Devils, a great show to all fans who will come for the game”.
The 2019 International Champions Cup gives the Rossoneri the opportunity to test themselves against the very best.
