The Soccer Champions Tour will finalize an epic western trip, with a night cap at the Rose Bowl between Real Madrid and Juventus, Saturday, July 30.
As some of Europe (EUFA) and Mexico’s (La Liga) biggest soccer clubs made their way to the U.S. for the first time since the start of the pandemic, Los Angeles will host the finale after matches in Las Vegas, San Francisco and Dallas.
“I went to the U.S. in 2019, with Florentina and it was definitely a remarkable experience,” Striker Dušan Vlahović said at the start of the tour. “we’re all very happy that we have an opportunity to go back to the U.S., so from this point of view, as I said before, I’m happy to come to the U.S. and we can’t wait to get there and to play against great teams.”
The Saturday match up will be the third for each club, with the 2022 Champions League winning Real Madrid already having taken a 0-1 loss against FC Barcelona in Las Vegas, and 2-2 tie against Mexico’s Club America in San Francisco. To get here, Juventus beat the Chivas of Guadalajara 2-0 in Vegas and finished its match against FC Barcelona in a 2-2 tie.
As of this writing, tickets are still available to watch the 2021-22 UEFA Champions League winning Real Madrid, take on its rivals Juventus at the Rose Bowl, with tickets for the Champions Tour ranging from $35-$$2,000.
