Inter have announced that they will once again take part in the International Champions Cup this summer, returning to North America after playing in the ICC China last year.
The schedule is a bit different this summer as the Nerazzurri will play two games in the USA and one game in Europe. with the first weekend of games in Serie A for the 2016/17 season scheduled for 21 August, the new schedule is better suited for Inter.
I felt in the past with the ICC games being played in late July that Inter had to have in essence two preseason campos. One to get ready for the ICC games and one to get ready for the start of the season. That should not be the case this summer.
Inter’s preseason opponents will bring up mixed emotions for Inter fans. After kicking off preseason against French champions Paris Saint-Germain in Oregon, Inter will head to Charlotte, North Carolina for a rematch of the 2010 Champions League Final against Bayern Munich.
Inter will wrap up their ICC preseason with a match against Scottish champions Celtic on 13 August. Inter famously lost to Celtic in the 1967 Champions League Final and this match is rumored to be taking place in Lisbon, where that final was played.
