MIAMI, Fla. - A soccer tournament featuring some of the world's most famous teams has been organized for this summer, with the final four games to be played in Miami on Aug. 6-7.
At least half of the eight-team field will be announced Tuesday at a news conference at the Miami Dolphins' stadium, where the championship and consolation rounds are scheduled.
Organizers plan for the tournament to become an annual event, although sites may change. Multiyear deals have been signed with some teams and a title sponsor. Network TV coverage is planned this year in 151 countries.
The tournament will begin open in Europe on July 27. Opening-round games are planned in Phoenix, San Francisco and Indianapolis, with the semifinals in New York and Los Angeles on Aug. 3-4.
