The University of Michigan will not host an International Champions Cup soccer match at Michigan Stadium this year, athletic director Jim Hackett told the Michigan Daily.

"We wanted to make it happen," Hackett said.

Hackett said he and International Champions Cup officials were unable to overcome scheduling conflicts.

Last year's match, between Real Madrid and Manchester United on Aug. 2 at Michigan Stadium, set a soccer attendance record for a game in the United States (109,318).

The 2015 International Champions Cup schedule will be announced April 28.

In addition to Ann Arbor, other 2014 International Champions Cup matches took place at Denver; Berkeley, Calif.; Landover, Md.; Dallas; Philadelphia; Pittsburgh; Chicago; New York; Minneapolis; Charlotte, N.C.; Miami; and Toronto.
