2020 International Champions Cup is poised to have a reduced format due to the presence of an expanded 24-team European Championship and the 12-team Copa America next summer.
This year’s pre-season tournament had 12 teams taking part in 17 venues across three continents – Europe, North America, and Asia – from July 16 until August 10. With Euro 2020 and the Copa America not finishing until July 12 and the soccer tournament at the Tokyo Summer Olympics taking place from July 22 until August 8 – in addition to players requiring rest before the start of the 2020-21 domestic seasons – organizer Relevant Sports is rethinking its plans for the ICC men’s tournament next summer.
All 18 participating teams contested the tournament as part of a single table in 2018, with each team playing three matches and the champion crowned based on points total. Matches were held across 15 venues in the United States, 7 in Europe, and 1 in Singapore.
For the 2019 edition, 12 teams participated in the tournament. Guadalajara took place in this tournament, being the only non-European team participating. Games were played across 17 cities in the United States, Europe, Singapore, and China.
