The Los Blancos will participate in the International Champions Cup before a potentially hectic start to the competitive campaign Real Madrid are set for a busy pre-season that could become even more crowded if they successfully defend the Champions League by beating Juventus.
If Zinadine Zidane’s men triumph in Wales, they will add the UEFA Super Cup to a schedule that already includes the Spanish Super Cup between the winners of La Liga and the Copa del Rey.
With four matches – and plenty of travelling – in the United States also booked, Los Blancos will not be short of minutes when the league campaign gets underway.
This is your complete guide to the fixtures awaiting Madrid during pre-season.

Real Madrid are one of the clubs participating in the International Champions Cup and will travel to the United States for three fixtures in that competition plus one extra match.
The first is against Manchester United in Santa Clara, California on July 23. That will be played at Levi’s Stadium, which houses 68,500 fans and is the home of the NFL’s San Francisco 49ers.
Madrid will then take a quick flight an hour down the coast to Los Angeles, where they will take on Manchester City three days later. That game will be played at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum, an older, bowl-shaped venue with a capacity of 93,000. College football’s USC Trojans play there and the NFL’s Los Angeles Rams are also temporary residents.
From there it is five hours by plane to Miami, Florida. At the Miami Dolphins’ 65,326-capacity Hard Rock Stadium in nearby Miami Gardens, Zidane’s men will contest the first Clasico against Barcelona played outside of Spain for 25 years. With over 70% of Miami’s population speaking Spanish as a first language, expect a raucous crowd.
Once their ICC participation is over, Madrid fly three hours north to Chicago for the MLS All-Star Game. At Soldier Field, the 61,500-capacity home of the NFL’s Chicago Bears, they will play an exhibition match against the best players in MLS, with Kaka likely to feature against his former club.
