The International Champions Cup first kicked off in the summer of 2013, and the idea behind it was to make the traditional European club pre-season tours into a competitive tournament.

Real Madrid, Juventus, Chelsea, Inter Milan, A.C. Milan, Valencia, Everton and L.A. Galaxy featured in the first competition.

Real Madrid beat Chelsea 3-1 in Miami in the final to finish as winners of the inaugural edition.

For the 2014 edition, the eight teams, Manchester United, Manchester City, Liverpool, Inter Milan, A.C. Milan, AS Roma, Olympiacos and Real Madrid, will form two groups of four, and play in a round-robin format.

The winner of both groups will play in the final at Sun Life Stadium in Miami on August 4.

Here are how the groups shape up:

Group A: Manchester United, Real Madrid, Inter Milan, AS Roma
