Wednesday's soccer news update has the schedule for the 2016 International Champions Cup. The summer not-quite-friendly tournament returns with Premier League darlings Leicester City joining Inter Milan, PSG, Real Madrid, Bayern Munich, Milan, Liverpool, and Chelsea in games scheduled for big venues all over the US starting in late July. That includes using college football stadiums in Eugene, Oregon and Columbus, Ohio. It's not just the US, though. Barcelona is part of the North American schedule but won't be playing games in this country. Along with Celtic, their games will be in Europe. There are separate tournaments involving different teams in Australia (Atletico Madrid, Juventus, Spurs) and China (Borussia Dortmund, Manchester United, Manchester City).
