According to Crain's. LINK HERE

Great to see the stadium getting back in the rotation after being played at Comerica Park last year. 

Playing again at Michigan Stadium suggests tournament organizers would pit the most popular teams there, but nothing has been announced yet on which clubs will participate in the ICC this summer. The tournament is used as preseason friendlies by participating European clubs.

FWIW, I have heard from a credible source that Real Madrid, Juventus, Man U, and Man City are all playing in the ICC again this year (no FCB), but don't know the other teams or who specifically will be playing at the Big House.

Looks like the Athletic Department made some nice cash for hosting this event. I don't care if it's bull riding, use the Big House more than 7 times per year. The WIngs- Leafs hockey match was a big success and would draw a huge crowd of puckheads again.

On another note Bruce Madej has done a great job with the Volvik Golf tournament at Travis Pointe, and now MOtt's Childens Hospital is involved. Great cause, great marketing....The 2018 LPGA Volvik Championship tournament week will kick off with the first annual University of Michigan C.S. Mott Children’s Hospital Congenital Heart Center LPGA Pro-Am on Monday, May 21, 2018 at Travis Pointe Country Club.
