Every year, people swear that soccer is finally becoming a bigger sport in the United States but it hasn’t been until this year that a major club tournament finally landed on American shores. Dubbed the inaugural Guinness International Champions Cup, eight of the biggest professional club teams from four countries played in a bracket-style tournament over a period of 12 days.
In order to bring the full experience to a larger audience, the games were played in stadiums around the country. Since we’re based in NYC, we were dying for a chance to get to the August 4th matches played at The Metlife Stadium. Thanks to Guinness and Taylor PR, we got our chance.
As part of a two-leg series of games, we were lucky enough to go see both Valencia CF (Spain) play AC Milan (Italy) and Chelsea (England) play Inter Milan (Italy).
Check out some of the photos from the matches below.
