Leicester take on Barcelona, PSG and Celtic in International Champions Cup

Leicester City director of football John Rudkin spoke about his club's involvement in this summer's ICC tournament.
Former Liverpool midfielder Gary McAllister appreciates the intense preseason competition the ICC tournament provides.
The ESPN FC team compare how Leicester City would fare in the other top European leagues.

Leicester will face Barcelona, Paris Saint-Germain and Celtic in the International Champions Cup over the summer, while Liverpool will take on Chelsea at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena.

The Foxes are currently leading the Premier League by five points and look set to claim an incredible title given that they were almost relegated at the end of last season.

They are one of 10 clubs competing in the tournament, joining the likes of Barcelona, Real Madrid, Bayern Munich, PSG, AC Milan, Inter Milan and Celtic, as well as fellow English clubs Chelsea and Liverpool.

And, this summer, they will be taking on Celtic in Glasgow on July 23 in the tournament's opening match, before facing newly crowned French champions Paris Saint-Germain in Los Angeles on July 30 and finishing with a trip to Stockholm to challenge Barcelona on Aug. 3.

Leicester City chief executive Susan Whelan told the club website: "An invitation to participate in the International Champions Cup highlights the significant impression the club is making on an international audience.

"We are delighted to be involved in this year's competition. It will form part of a carefully planned pre-season programme that has worked extremely well in recent years -- including a week-long training camp in Austria and selected domestic friendly fixtures.

"The ICC is a great opportunity to compete with some of Europe's leading clubs and to further promote the Club, and the city of Leicester, around the world."

Also in action will be Liverpool and Chelsea, who play on July 27 at the Rose Bowl, Pasadena. The Reds also take on AC Milan on July 30 at Levi's Stadium, Santa Clara and face Barcelona at an unconfirmed venue in Europe on Aug. 6.

This year's ICC tournament will also be played across the globe, including tournaments in China and Australia, which feature Man City, Tottenham Hotspur, Juventus, Atletico Madrid and Melbourne Victory.
