Feature Matches

The International Champions Cup, a preseason tournament with many of Europe's best clubs participating, features this week!  Tuesday night the L.A. Galaxy meet Barcelona, while Manchester United take on San Jose.  Wednesday, tucked in between the Gold Cup Semifinals, we have the New York Red Bulls v Chelsea at 6pm.  ICC action wraps up Saturday with Barcelona v Manchester United, Chelsea v Paris St. Germain, and AC Milan v Inter Milan!

The Gold Cup has been narrowed down to the last four teams, with the Semifinals falling Wednesday afternoon and evening!  The United States take on Jamaica and Mexico face Panama for a spot in Sunday's Final!  It is a high probability that it will be a CONCACAF Clasico between El Tri and the Stars and Stripes on Sunday (with a chance at a 2017 Confederations Cup berth on the line)!  Panama and Jamaica, will of course, have something to say about that on Wednesday night, the Semi's start at 4pm.

On the Horizon

Next week the MLS All Star Game comes to Denver, with the best of MLS battling Tottenham Hotspur!  The Colorado Rapids are at home Saturday night against the L.A. Galaxy, looking for a fourth win in a row against Western Conference competition!  Sunday morning Arsenal battle Chelsea in the Community Shield match, as last year's FA Cup winners vye for silverware against last year's EPL Champions!
