Call­ing all fút­bol fans! Real Madrid CF and FC Barcelona will face off on North Amer­i­can soil when El Cla­sico lands state­side for the very first time.

One of the great­est ri­val­ries in sports—be­tween soccer gi­ants Real Madrid CF and FC Barcelona—dates back to the 1930s, but re­mains as fierce as ever to­day. In 2014, Forbes even ranked them as the two most valu­able sports teams in the world. And on July 29, the globe’s best soccer play­ers will pack their cleats and bring their tal­ents to Hard Rock Sta­dium for the first El Cla­sico match played on North Amer­i­can soil, and only the sec­ond out­side of Spain since its in­cep­tion (the first was held in Venezuela in 1982).

Part of the 2017 In­ter­na­tional Cham­pi­ons Cup tour­na­ment, pre­sented by Heineken in an ef­fort to build and pro­mote a soccer pres­ence in the United States and be­yond, Rel­e­vant Sports will also be host­ing the Paris Sain­tger­main FC ver­sus Ju­ven­tus FC match just three days ear­lier, on July 26. And that’s not all: Be­cause this is Mi­ami, you can bet week­long VIP fút­bol fes­tiv­i­ties will en­sue re­gard­less of who wins. Tune in on game day— when the world’s eyes will be on the 305—to find out whether it’s Cris­tiano Ron­aldo or Lionel Messi pop­ping bot­tles at the end of the night. July 29 at 7:30 PM; Hard Rock Sta­dium, 347 Don Shula Dr., Mi­ami Gar­dens, 305-943-8000; tick­et­mas­ter.com
