Michigan Stadium Expected To Host ManU-Real Madrid Match
Michigan Stadium in Ann Arbor will be the site of a Manchester United-Real Madrid match on Aug. 2 as part of the Guinness Int'l Champions Cup tournament, according to a source. The official announcement of the match will be made this afternoon. The tournament of eight major global clubs is produced by Relevant Sports. Chevrolet's participation as a tournament sponsor is expected to be revealed at the same time of the Michigan Stadium match announcement (Christopher Botta, Staff Writer).
The Univ. of Michigan "will permit a one-day license for liquor sales at the stadium for the soccer match," as was done for the most recent NHL Winter Classic game (CRAINSDETROIT.com, 4/3).
