Headlines
The International Champions Cup is a series of glorified friendlies that teams use to warm up for their upcoming league seasons. It's also a method for clubs to grow their brand in emerging markets, like the USA, China, and Australia. Well, Manchester United and Manchester City were supposed to play a match in Beijing this week, but it has been cancelled due to poor pitch conditions. Heavy rains have butchered the field at the 80,000 seat Bird's Nest Stadium, where the match was slated to take place. Although it was a non-competitive fixture, it was supposed to be the first match in the reignited rivalry between Jose Mourinho and Pep Guardiola.

Today's Matches
None.
