Posted Mar 21, 2017

The Washington Redskins and Relevent Sports announced Tuesday that FedExField will host English powerhouse Manchester United F.C. and Spanish giants FC Barcelona on Wednesday, July 26.

Renowned European clubs set to face one another as part of the International Champions Cup presented by Heineken

LANDOVER, Md. – The Washington Redskins and Relevent Sports, a division of RSE Ventures, announced today that FedExField will host English powerhouse Manchester United F.C. and Spanish giants FC Barcelona on Wednesday, July 26. The match will kick off at 7:30 p.m. ET on ESPN2.

Exclusive presale tickets for match will be available beginning March 28 at 10 a.m., while general public will have access to tickets on April 4 at 10 a.m. Fans can sign up at www.internationalchampionscup.com for access to the presale.

“We remain committed to offering first-class entertainment to our season ticket members and to the entire Washington, D.C. area community,” said Terry Bateman, Redskins Executive Vice President/Chief Marketing Officer. “We could not be more thrilled to host these two titans of European soccer at FedExField.”

The match adds to FedExField’s all-star lineup of events as part of the Redskins’ commitment to provide diverse entertainment options, including premier college football games, soccer matches, world-class performers and more to the community and season ticket members.

Featuring superstars Lionel Messi, Luis Suárez and Neymar, FC Barcelona reigns as La Liga and Copa del Rey champions. Manchester United is led by Zlatan Ibrahimović, the team’s top goal scorer, and club legend Wayne Rooney. The club has already claimed both the 2017 League Cup and Community Shield.

The contest will be a rematch of the teams’ meeting at FedExField on July 30, 2011. In that match, Michael Owen’s go-ahead goal in the 76th minute gave Manchester United F.C. a 2-1 victory in front of a record-setting crowd of 81,807 people.
