Chelsea, Inter and AC Milan will be joined by Mexican club Club de Futbol America with each team playing the remaining clubs once. The tournament will kick off on July 19 with Club America taking on Italian champions Inter Milan who will then play Chelsea two days later.
Carlo Ancelotti will be hoping to use the tournament to assess his squad and get his tactics right before the start of the new season. The Italian was appointed as the new manager at the start of July following the departure of Russia coach Guus Hiddink.
Chelsea have made two signings so far this season with former Manchester City striker Daniel Sturridge signing on for free after his contract with the midlands club expired while Russia international Yuri Zhirkov was bought from CSKA Moscow in a deal worth £18 million.
The tournament will allow Ancelotti to square up against his former club AC Milan who have had a disappointing summer so far. Worsening financial situation meant that the Italian club was forced to sell Kaka to Real Madrid for €65m while Bordeaux bought Yoann Gourcuff for €15m. There have been no major signings so far with Thiago Silva and Oguchi Onyewu being the two new arrivals.
Rivals Inter Milan on the other hand have managed to hold on to their star players Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Maicon and have made three additions to the squad in the form of Thiago Motta, Diego Milito and Kerlon.
Inter's clash against Chelsea on July 21 will see Jose Mourinho take on his former club since he resigned from the position two years ago. Mourinho will be looking to get his squad back in shape before the start of the new season as he attempts to help Inter win a fifth straight Serie A title as well as improve his side's form in the Champions League.
Each game will be played at a different city across the country with Georgia Dome, Rose Bowl, Stanford Stadium, M&T Bank Stadium, Gillette Stadium and Cowboys Stadium being chosen as the venues.
