The 2013 Uli Hoeneß Cup is next Wednesday, and it is a sellout. The match is quite the intriguing encounter with German and European Champion Bayern Munich hosting Spanish Champion Barcelona and is a rematch of the incredible Champions League semifinal when Bayern just destroyed Barca 7-0.

The match is a late 60th birthday present for Bayern President Uli Hoeneß, and all of the proceeds generated from the match will be donated to charity.

Pep Guardiola will also be getting his first shot at his old club where he spent 23 years as a player and a coach. If you've been following the war of words developing between Guardiola and Barcelona president Sandro Rosell will be something to keep an eye on over the next week.

As of now, this match isn't scheduled to be legally televised or streamed in the United States. If anything changes with regard to this, we'll be sure to update everyone. If you find it first, be sure to leave it in the comments.
