International Champions Cup cancelled for 2020

2020 edition of the International Champions Cup cancelled

April 10, 2020 By Oscar Rojas
The competition that usually takes place this summer will not be played due to the complicated international schedule.

It seemed like the obvious thing to do, but the confirmation is finally here: the 2020 International Champions Cup will not be played this year.

The global pre-season tournament, which is quickly becoming one of the most anticipated competitions of every summer, will not be played due to the complications caused by the coronavirus pandemic.

In a press release posted on the tournament's website, Relevent CEO Daniel Sillman urged fans to understand the nature of this decision.

"Dear fans: We are heartbroken for the thousands who have succumbed to the awful Covid-19 disease, and our thoughts are with everyone who's been impacted during this difficult time.

The health and safety of players, staff, fans and all who are involved in our matches is always paramount. The lack of clarity of when social distancing and shelter-in-place restrictions will be lifted and the uncertain international football calendarl, with the potential for European domestic leagues and UEFA tournaments being played into August, means planning a Men's International Champions Cup this summer is unfeasible. We look forward to bringing the best clubs and most iconic matchups in the world to the U.S. and Asia in 2021," the document states.

The tournament kicked off in 2009, but it gained notoriety from 2012 forward, when a host of the best European teams took part of the tournament in the U.S., Asia and some European cities.
