AC Milan will also be demonstrating their skills in two other games in the US this summer. They face Real Madrid in New York City on August 8, and they square off against Chelsea in Miami on July 28. These exhibition matches are extremely popular with American soccer fans. The last time AC Milan played in the US, a capacity crowd of 42,531 watched them beat Inter Milan 2-0. While the team uses these matches as a way to gear up for their own season, it gives American soccer fans a way of boosting the game's visibility in the US.
