Real Madrid and Barcelona meet in Las Vegas on the Soccer Champions Tour

Barcelona and Real Madrid will renew the US side of their rivalry this summer in Las Vegas, where the Spanish giants play a friendly on 23 July at the Raiders’ Allegiant Stadium.

The couple met five years ago in Miami. It was a 32 Barcelona victory attended by more than 66,000 participants who was part of the International Champions Cup, an ambitious off-season tour designed, in part, to pave the way for a La Liga game on American soil. That game never materialized and the ICC was shut down during the pandemic.

This year’s American El Clásico is part of a five-game, five-team roster called the “Soccer Champions Tour”. It is organized by the owner of LA Galaxy, AEG, and will also see the participation of Juventus, Club América and Chivas de Guadalajara in Las Vegas, Dallas and California.
