Cowboys’ AT&T Stadium to host Real Madrid vs Roma in International Champions Cup


Information about the 2014 Guinness International Champions Cup is leaking out slowly but surely. While there has been no official announcement, it looks like AT&T Stadium, home of the Dallas Cowboys, will host a soccer game between Real Madrid and Roma.

From the Dallas Morning News:

Defending champion Real Madrid of Spain and Italy’s AS Roma will play in the Dallas area this summer as part of the Guinness International Champions Cup, to be played from July 26 to Aug. 4.

The game is scheduled for July 29 in Arlington. AT&T Stadium has made no formal announcement regarding the game but appears to be the likely location.

AT&T Stadium isn’t a stranger to soccer games. They’ve hosted many there before including the semi-finals of the Gold Cup this past summer. There is a large soccer fan base in North Texas and arguably the world’s biggest star on the world’s most valuable franchise will draw a crowd. Not to mention Real Madrid’s squad includes many famous soccer players, like former Tottenham Hotspur star Gareth Bale.
