Eight-team tourney planned for summer

MIAMI -- A soccer tournament featuring some of the world's most famous teams has been organized for this summer, with the final four games to be played in Miami on Aug. 6-7.

Real Madrid, Juventus and the Los Angeles Galaxy are three of the teams that will play in the tournament, SI.com reported Monday. The website reported that the tournament will be called the International Champions Cup.

At least half of the eight-team field will be announced Tuesday at a news conference at the Miami Dolphins' stadium, where the championship and consolation rounds are scheduled.

Organizers plan for the tournament to become an annual event, although sites may change. Multiyear deals have been signed with some teams and a title sponsor. Network TV coverage is planned this year in 151 countries.

The tournament will begin open in Europe on July 27. Opening-round games are planned in Phoenix, San Francisco and Indianapolis, with the semifinals in New York and Los Angeles on Aug. 3-4.

The field will feature club teams from four countries, including the United States. All eight teams will gather in Miami for the final four games, including the championship and games to determine third, fifth and seventh place.

The tournament was organized by Relevent Sports, a division of a company co-founded by Dolphins owner Stephen Ross.

Sites for games in 2014 are uncertain. The Dolphins' stadium may be unavailable because the team has proposed nearly $400 million in upgrades and hopes to have work underway next year.

Information from The Associated Press was used in this report.
