Four popular soccer clubs from Mexico and Argentina will face oﬀ in the US this summer in the inaugural Colossus Cup. Matches will take place June 28 at San Diego County Credit Union Stadium in San Diego and July 3 at Red Bull Arena in Harrison, NJ, home of Major League Soccer’s New York Red Bulls.
Buenos Aires rivals Boca Juniors and River Plate, who met in last year’s Copa Libertadores Final, will take part in the competition alongside Mexican giants Club America and Chivas de Guadalajara. The Colossus Cup is being presented by Torneos, an Argentine sports marketing company.
“Our goal is to present some of the best talent in Mexico and Argentina for the millions of soccer fans both in the US and around the world,” said Ignacio Galarza, Torneos chief executive. “The Colossus Cup will provide a rare opportunity to see the top four teams of the Americas in some of the greatest venues in the US.”
