Soccer is coming back to the Big House and Real Madrid and Chelsea FC will face off at Michigan Stadium. The game will take place on Saturday, July 30 at 3 p.m.

The game will be part of the International Champions Cup in North America which runs from July 23 - Aug. 13. The cup features 11 of the best teams from around the world.

In August 2014, the Champions Cup in North America featured Real Madrid and Manchester United with nearly 110,000 people attending the game.

Real Madrid's roster includes world-renowned Portuguese soccer star Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale from Wales.

As they did with the last game at the Big House, they will cover the turf at Michigan Stadium and lay sod down so the players will be playing on a grass pitch.
