Michigan Stadium draws 100,000 for Real Madrid vs Manchester United

On Saturday afternoon, Real Madrid and Manchester United invaded Ann Arbor for their match up in the 2014 Guinness International Champions Cup.

We have seen The Big House packed on multiple occasions whether it be for a Michigan Wolverines game or the NHL’s Stadium Series, but there was another special scene for the big soccer match this weekend.

According to a few fans in attendance, the game drew more than 100,000 fans and the stadium is packed.

It shouldn’t be too surprising that so many people turned out for a game between two of the most popular European clubs in the United States — with the biggest bandwagons — and it is safe to say that anyone who has previously said Americans do not care about soccer can now hush themselves.
