El Clásico: FC Barcelona vs Real Madrid in Miami

Posted by Vanessa Lotz | March 21, 2017 | Sports

El Clásico is heading to Miami, FL for a historic one-night showdown that is sure to light up the city! The match will be played on Saturday, July 29, at Hard Rock Stadium, the home of the Miami Dolphins Football team; with another International Champions Cup Match (with Teams TBD) on Wednesday, July 26, kicking things off at the same location.

For those of you who are not diligent soccer fans– El Clásico refers to any match-up between fierce soccer rivals Real Madrid and FC Barcelona, a duo that always promises to be a dynamic and well-fought game. Stephen Ross, owner of the Dolphins is also the owner of the International Champions Cup, so it comes as no surprise that the two teams will be meeting in Latin hub, Miami.

Don’t let your high-end, Miami-based, or soccer-loving clients miss out on this unique opportunity to witness one of the world’s most viewed annual sporting events, here, on US soil. Ticket prices range from $350 – $6,200, so attendees will definitely draw from a more selective crowd. But for the right clients, this is a great opportunity to book a high commission trip with first-class flights, luxury hotel reservations, private chauffeurs, exclusive dinner reservations, and, of course, the best seat in the house!

About El Clásico:

Originally, El Clásico referred only to those competitions held in the Spanish championship, but now the term applies to all matches between the two clubs. “The game will likely feature Barcelona’s M-S-N trio of Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez and Neymar and Real Madrid’s B-B-C trio of Gareth Bale, Karim Benzema and Cristiano Ronaldo all on the same field. While Zinedine Zidane will likely be at the Real Madrid helm, Barcelona will probably have a new manager in charge for that match. Luis Enrique announced earlier in the month that he’d be stepping down after his contract expires in June. After Wednesday’s emphatic Champions League comeback against PSG in the round of 16, Enrique still has a shot of leaving Barcelona on top with a treble — a feat he accomplished his first year at the helm.” (Mello, Igor. Bareclona and Real Madrid, CBSSports.com).
