Some of the other featured matches of the global tournament are Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid squaring off at MetLife Stadium and Manchester United taking on Inter in Singapore.

18 matches will be played across the United States and feature 12 teams in all.

Arsenal is a member of the Premier League and AS Roma is in Serie A.

Each team plays three matches and the club with the most points at the end of the tournament receives a trophy.

Presale tickets will be available April 2nd and general ticket sales begin April 9th.
