100,000 sellout at Michigan Stadium for Aug. 2 match between Real Madrid, Manchester United

ASSOCIATED PRESS

ANN ARBOR, Mich.  — It took less than a day for all tickets to sell out at the 100,000-plus seat Michigan Stadium for the Aug. 2 exhibition game between world soccer powerhouses Manchester United and Real Madrid.

Organizers of the International Cup Championship said Wednesday that all seats were gone on the first day of general sales. The Ann Arbor stadium is the venue for the University of Michigan football team.

The Chevrolet division of Detroit-based General Motors Co. takes over United’s shirt sponsorship next season in a $559 million, seven-year deal.

Manchester United’s U.S. tour also includes games against Roma at Denver’s Sports Authority Field on July 26, and Inter Milan on July 29 at FedEx Field in Landover, Md.
