A Galactic Classic

On May 12, the grill of the Soccer Champions Tour. Six European giants in the United States: Milan, Juventus, Arsenal, Manchester United, Barcelona and Real Madrid. “Six top clubs, one epic stage” is the hook used by the organization. 31 European Cups altogether. Eight games between July 22 and August 2, with a jewel in the indisputable crown: El Clásico. The Real Madrid and the Barça They will face each other at dawn from July 29 to 30 in Spanish time (not yet confirmed). The AT&T of the Dallas Cowboys will be the setting. 80,000 fans in a stand that is expected to be packed… despite the prices. And it is that, one month ahead, the average price of the available ticket is 500 euros. El Clásico not only unleashes madness in Spain. It is a planetary and Galactic confrontation.

From 205… to 3,200 euros

Yeah the cheapest ticket at this point is 205 euros, the highest peak shoots up to… 3,200 euros! Some seats that will place those who scratch their pockets at the foot of the field, on the opposite side of the Cowboys coliseum benches. And they are not the only four-figure tickets, since in the rows closest to the pitch it is easy to dance between 1,000 and 2,300 euros.

To match the importance that they give to the Clásico since the summer event, the rest of the games go down a lot. Without leaving Texas, in the early morning of From July 26 to 27, Manchester United will face at the NRG Stadium in Houston, with an average price of 309 euros; the match against Juventus (early morning from August 2 to 3) at the Camping World Stadium in Orlando, leaves its average price at 255 euros; and the most ‘economical’ is the starting signal for Ancelotti’s men: the match against Milan at dawn from July 22 to 23 at the Rose Bowl from Pasadena (Los Angeles), whose available tickets average 180 euros, the only one of the four friendlies of Madrid’s stay in the United States that falls below the 200-euro barrier.

Bellingham and Gundogan, premiere

A match that takes on a special dimension, because it will be the coming out in a Classic of the two great signings of the greats of our football. Two midfielders, one 20 years old and the other 32, one landed for 103 million euros and the other at zero cost (but with a transfer bonus), but both with star stripes from minute one. Jude Bellingham and Ilkay Gundogan face to face for the first time with his new elastic. It will be a half friendly, since the tension last summer in Las Vegas (0-1, with a goal from Raphinha) had a competitive duel voltage (Rüdiger’s pique with Araújo) and this boosted the commitment to the Clásico as the headliner one more time.

Otherwise, this price rise would not be understood with respect to the Allegiant Stadium, where the average disbursement 12 months ago was 275 euros, 45% less than at present. If in the City of Sin it was full, in Dallas it is expected to repeat and the income account is simple. 80,000 viewers at an average of 500 euros per ticket… 40 million euros. An unreal figure, since the endless expenses must be subtracted from that gross balance, but everything indicates that the AT&T will not be the last Clásico in territory yankee.

Also, it will be a great yardstick for Florentino and Laporta for Sixth Street (organizing company of the Soccer Champions Tour) and Legends (responsible for operating the matches in order to generate the greatest possible benefits through a premium experience). Both clubs partnered with them to improve the profitability of the new Bernabéu and the Camp Nou when their respective works are finished.
