The matches, announced Tuesday, will be part of the International Champions Cup, a preseason exhibition competition from July 23 to August 13.

Bayern Munich will prepare for the 2016-17 campaign with a US tour featuring matches against Milan, Inter and Real Madrid.

Bayern are set to play AC Milan at Chicago's Soldier Field on July 27, and three days later take on Inter Milan in Charlotte.
