World Cup 2018: Full List Of Fixtures, Locations And City Venues In Russia

The sixth edition of the International Champions Cup has come to a close as some of the world's biggest and best clubs collided over the summer.

Held in the likes of Asia and the United States, the annual pre-season tournament involving Europe's top clubs taps into the huge fanbases that exist for those teams outside of their local markets.

It has drawn huge crowds in the past; and not only do the clubs involved pocketing significant appearance fees, but it also enables them to benefit from the longer-term commercial benefits of engaging with supporters across the globe.

Goal brings you all you need to know about the 2018 International Champions Cup.

What is the International Champions Cup?

The International Champions Cup (ICC) is a pre-season tournament that has been held every summer since 2013.

For the past three years, the ICC has been split into three different regions: the United States, China and Australia in 2016 and the United States, China and Singapore in 2017.

In the two years prior to that, it was held exclusively in the USA. This year, China was replaced by a number of European venues in Sweden, Poland, Austria, Italy, Switzerland and Spain.

Europe and Singapore hosted 10 games in total, while the USA section has 17 games on the schedule - a total of 27 games.

According to organisers, in a departure from previous years, each team played three matches and only one champion emerged. In previous years teams did not always play the same number of games and a separate champion was crowned in each host country.

It began on July 20 and ended on August 11, getting everyone back before the start of their competitive campaigns.

Eighteen of Europe's top clubs took part in the 2018 edition of the ICC, which was held at various venues across the United States, Europe and Singapore.

The likes of Real Madrid, Barcelona, Juventus and Manchester giants United and City continued their involvement from previous years, while Benfica, Atletico Madrid and Liverpool join, having not played a part in the 2017 edition.

Unlike 2017, no games were played in China, with Singapore providing hosting duties in Asia, but a number of fixtures took place across Europe, with the likes of Arsenal, Bayern Munich and Paris Saint-Germain among those in action.

Who won the International Champions Cup last year?

Previously, each section yielded a separate winner, but in 2017 there were only two 'champions' because the teams in the Chinese section did not all play the same number of games.

Barcelona won their first ever ICC title by topping the US section with three wins from three. The Blaugrana defeated Juventus, Manchester United and Real Madrid on their way to glory.

Inter, meanwhile, topped the Singapore section to scoop a first ICC title, beating Bayern Munich and Chelsea.
