Exhibition game will take place at Lambeau Field on Saturday, July 23 and will be the first-ever football match to be played at the historic American football stadium.
The announcement was made today by the Green Bay Packers, who were joined by representatives from Manchester City and Bayern.
Last week it was confirmed City will also be playing an earlier fixture on July 20 at the NRG Stadium in Houston against Club América as part of our 2022/23 preseason trip in the U.S.
The USA Cup is also part of FC Bayern Munich’s preseason Audi Summer Tour, during which they will also stop in Washington, D.C., to play D.C. United on July 20.
This will be the second meeting between the clubs on U.S. territory after City defeated Bayern 3-2 in July, 2018, at Miami’s Hard Rock Stadium in an International Champions Cup match.
“We are looking forward to hosting a different kind of football at Lambeau Field this summer as we welcome FC Bayern Munich and Manchester City to Green Bay,” said Packers President and CEO Mark Murphy.
“Our home stadium is renowned for its history and tradition, and we’re honoured to host two equally historic clubs from across the pond. We’re looking forward to seeing their devoted supporters from around the world attend Lambeau Field’s debut soccer match.”
