To commemorate the 100th anniversary of Audi, a world class football tournament pitting the might of the legendary Manchester United against equally revered sides such as FC Bayern Munich, AC Milan and the Boca Juniors from Argentina will take place on July 29-30 at the Allianz Arena in Munich.
The eventual winners of the `Audi Cup' will lift a 2ft winner's trophy sculpted, appropriately, from Audi's trademark aluminum by the team at Concept Design Munich.
The Audi Cup, which is being held for the first time in the brand's Centenary year, comprises a total of four games, so each team will appear twice in the Allianz Arena. On July 29, Man Utd will meet the Argentinean champions Boca Juniors. In the second semi-final AC Milan will try to put hosts FC Bayern Munich out of the competition.
One day later, on July 30, the game for third place will take place first. It will be followed by the final for the Audi Cup 2009.
The commemorative competition brings together teams that have collectively won 78 national league championships, creating the right conditions for a classic soccer epic. The action starts on Wednesday afternoon at 16.30 Central European Time.
