International soccer coming to Bank of America Stadium


CHARLOTTE – Bank of America Stadium's first major event following stadium enhancements will feature two of the world's most recognizable European soccer clubs.

Liverpool FC will play AC Milan on Saturday, August 2 at 6:30 p.m. as part of the Guinness International Champions Cup.

Tickets are available through Ticketmaster. Group tickets and suites can be purchased through the Bank of America Stadium ticket office.

"We're excited about being the hosts for this tremendous international soccer event," Panthers president Danny Morrison said. "It's going to be a great match.

"This stadium in a park will come alive when we host this soccer event. We're delighted to be in that role."

When it comes to European Cup titles, Liverpool and AC Milan are behind only Spanish giant Real Madrid, who has claimed nine titles. AC Milan has won the competition seven times and Liverpool has won five times.

In fact, Liverpool's most recent European Cup came against AC Milan in the 2005 Champions League final, a contest that is regarded as one of the great, dramatic matches in history.

"It brings great memories of our win in the Champions League final," said Billy Hogan, Liverpool's chief commercial officer. "It's going to be terrific. We are really looking forward to coming to Charlotte."
