Real Madrid vs. Chelsea at Michigan Stadium?
Michigan Stadium might be the site of a second International Champions Cup soccer match this summer.
On Tuesday morning, the 2016 schedule on the International Champions Cup website listed a Real Madrid vs. Chelsea match in Ann Arbor on Saturday, July 30 at 8 p.m.
The schedule was later changed to indicate that the location of the match was “TBA.”
A Michigan athletic department spokesman declined comment to The Detroit News on Tuesday.
It is believed that the contract to hold the match at Michigan Stadium has not been finalized.
An official from Relevent Sports said on Tuesday that details of the July 30 venue will be announced later this week and said he could not offer further comment.
David Tyler, CEO of Relevent Sports, which backs the International Champions Cup, said Tuesday during a news conference that this is a global event and special venues are chosen.
"We love to take this game to truly iconic stadiums," Tyler said Tuesday.
Ohio Stadium also will host a game this summer.
Michigan Stadium hosted an International Champions Cup match on Aug. 2, 2014 between Read Madrid and Manchester United, won by Manchester United 3-1.
The crowd was announced as 109,318, the largest crowd ever for a soccer match in the United States.
