Atletico Madrid headed to the 'Stick
[COPA EUROAMERICANA] Bay Area fans will be able to catch UEFA Champions League semifinalist Atletico Madrid as the Spanish club will play the Earthquakes July 27
in a one-off game in the Copa Euroamericana at San Francisco's Candlestick Park.
The Atletico trip to California means that all but Chelsea among the UEFA Champions League semifinalists
will be headed to the United States this summer. Real Madrid will return for the Guinness International Champions Cup, while Bayern Munich will face the MLS All-Stars Aug. 6 in Portland, Ore.
Chelsea, a regular on the U.S. summer circuit for years, won't tour this summer. Coach Jose Mourinho loves summer training in the United States -- he's
taken Chelsea, Inter Milan and Real Madrid to UCLA -- but has decided the short window between the World Cup and start of the Premier League season could be better used.
then travel to Mexico's Club America to play at Azteca Stadium on July 30.
Monaco was also announced as a Copa Euroamericana participant, facing Colombia's Atletico Junior in Barranquilla
on July 20 and Atletico Nacional, another Colombian team, in Miami three days later.
