PSG to face Bayern Munich, Arsenal and Atletico Madrid in International Champions Cup

PSG to face Bayern Munich, Arsenal and Atletico Madrid in International Champions Cup
From ESPN - April 17, 2018

Two-time International Champions Cup (ICC) winners Paris Saint-Germain will be back for the competition this summer as they face Arsenal and Atletico Madrid in Singapore and Bayern Munich in Austria.

The seven-time Ligue 1 winners, who clinched their latest title with a 7-1 victory against Monaco on Sunday, were crowned champions following games in North America and Europe in 2015 and 2016 but this time are slated for two fixtures in Singapore in the country's second year as a host.

PSG will also play once in Europe at the start of their ICC campaign, which is largely expected to be Thomas Tuchel's debut as coach, before travelling to Asia for the bulk of their matches.

They will start with an encounter against Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich in Klangenfurt, Austria, and one week later, PSG will travel to Asia to face Arsenal at the National Stadium in Singapore on July 28 before completing their ICC calendar against Atletico Madrid on July 30.

PSG's presence in Asia this summer -- notably in Singapore -- ties in with the recent opening of an office there to develop their brand in the region.
