Soccer Champions Tour is working closely with Legends to bring these marquee matchups and elevated in-game experiences to local fans of the game.
Added Shervin Mirhashemi, CEO, Legends: “Fans will fill stadiums across the United States this summer for the incredible opportunity to cheer on some of the best clubs in the world as they compete in the Soccer Champions Tour. The fan experience will match the world-class soccer on the pitch. Legends is proud to partner with Soccer Champions Tour, the partner clubs and AEG to bring fans of the beautiful game this unforgettable experience."
The 2023 Soccer Champions Tour is being produced in partnership with AEG, the world's leading sports and live entertainment company.
“AEG is excited about the partnership with Soccer Champions Tour and Legends to bring the most successful soccer clubs in the world to fans across the U.S.,” said Tom Braun, Sr. Vice President, Soccer & Business Operations and Business Development at AEG. “Every matchup in this series is of the highest caliber and we’re thrilled that American soccer fans will have the opportunity to see these epic games featuring legendary teams live and in person.”
Since 2015, the Florida Cup has featured clubs from all over the world. Last year, Arsenal defeated Chelsea in the headline match in Orlando, setting a new soccer attendance record at Camping World Stadium.
“The Florida Cup is proud to once again bring a top international match to Orlando,” said Florida Cup CEO Ricardo Villar. “We look forward to welcome fans from around the globe to fill up Camping World Stadium this summer.”
