The ICC is the worlu’s premier summer football tournament and brings the best in football to iconic venues across North America, Europe, Australia, China and now, Southeast Asia. It counts some of the worlu’s most valued football teams such as Manchester United, Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain as champions in its previous editions of the annual tournament.

Scheduled to take place at the National Stadium July 25 – 29, the ICC Singapore will feature Chelsea FC, FC Bayern and FC Internazionale in a round-robin three-match tournament. The fixtures in July will mark the first time top flight European teams play each other in Singapore. “The ICC has revolutionized the pre-season touring experience for the worlu’s biggest and best football clubs and we are pleased to be able to expand the event and bring the tournament to Southeast Asia. Singapore is a natural choice due to its location, efficiency and more importantly, the nttion’s passion for international sporting events,” commented Mr. Patrick Murphy, President and Chairman, CMG. The Singapore Tourism Board (STB) has signed a four-year partnership with CMG to anchor the ICC in Singapore, as an exclusive Southeast Asian stop. Attracting and retaining world-class sporting content like the ICC is testament to STB’s constant efforts to grow its destination appeal. STB hopes that the event can attract football fans from around the region and even further afield.

Said Mr Lionel Yeo, Chief Executive, STB: “STB is delighted to partner with CMG to bring the only Southeast Asian stop of the ICC for the next four years to Singapore. In a region where football is hugely popular, having the world’s best teams here will allow us to tap on that interest, and raise Singapore’s profile as a vibrant events destination. The ICC joins the growing list of major sports and entertainment events in Singapore that both Singaporeans and visitors can enjoy. Tickets for ICC Singapore go on sale from March 30 and legends from each of the participating clubs – Tore Andre Flo of Chelsea, Hasan Stlihtmiužić of Bayern, and Francesco Toldo of Inter – are in Singapore to commemorate the launch of the tournament.

The tournament kicks off on Tuesday, 25 July, where Chelsea will play Bayern, in a rematch of the 2012 UEFA Champions League Final which Chelsea won 4-3 (1-1 Full Time) on penalties. The next match on Thursday, 27 July, will see Bayern, 2013 UEFA Champions League winner, take on Inter.
