[GUINNESS INTERNATIONAL CUP CHAMPIONSHIP] It took less than a day for all general tickets to sell out at Michigan Stadium for the Guinness International Champions Cup game on Aug. 2 between Manchester United and Real Madrid, setting up the possibility that the match will break the U.S. soccer attendance record.

Located in Ann Arbor, Mich., Michigan Stadium is home to the University of Michigan football team and known as "The Big House," seating 109,901 for football. The capacity will be less for soccer. Some seats may be lost as the field will have to widened to meet international soccer standards. A grass surface will also have to be laid over the turf field.

The U.S. soccer attendance record is 101,799 at the Rose Bowl in 1984 for the Olympic gold-medal final between France and Brazil.

A local angle to United's visit to Michigan: Detroit-based Chevrolet will become United's shirt sponsor next season, paying $559 million in a seven-year deal.

July 26 in Glendale, Ariz.
Real Madrid v. Inter Milan (5 pm ET, Fox Sports 2)
