The news that many fans were expecting to hear has been confirmed as the International Champions Cup expected to go ahead this summer has been suspended and postponed until 2021.
The pre-season tournament emitted a statement confirming the postponement, which will have an important financial impact on European teams, even if it was not always profitable for the owners, who are also involved in the new American side Inter de Miami.
This year, the main attraction was expected to be a Clasico in Las Vegas as the debut of a new stadium on the city’s strip.
That will have to wait until next year with Real Madrid expected to miss out on 18 million euros, Barcelona also suffering a similar loss.
The coronavirus pandemic has made it impossible to celebrate the tournament this summer, with the pandemic now becoming a serious crisis in the United States, whilst other games were due to take place in China where strict measures are still in place as life returns to normality.
