Bayern Munich’s first match in the United States this summer will take place in Philadelphia on July 25, according to the Philadelphia Inquirer. Lincoln Financial Field, home of the NFL’s Philadelphia Eagles, will host German champions Bayern and Italian champions Juventus for the first game for either team in the International Champions Cup.

The official announcement will be made on Tuesday.

A leaked version of ESPN’s schedule found it’s way onto Reddit from user Agent64943. The alleged leak says that Bayern’s second game will be against Pep Guardiola and Manchester City in Miami three days after the Juventus game.

We knew there was going to be two matches for Bayern in the United States; however, the Reddit leak says that Bayern will be playing Paris Saint-Germain at the Wörthesee Stadion in Austria before they depart for America.

There had been rumors that Bayern and Borussia Dortmund would play a friendly version of Der Klassiker in Chicago, but it appears that match will not come to pass.

Update: The Washington Post is also reporting this information.
