The tournament was officially announced at Mandarin Oriental, Singapore today with club legends Francesco Toldo (Inter Milan), Hasan Salihamidzic (Bayern Munich) and Tore Andre Flo (Chelsea) in attendance.

Taking place from Jul 25-29, the first Singapore edition of the round-robin tournament will consist of three matches: Chelsea vs Bayern Munich (Jul 25), Bayern Munich vs Inter Milan (Jul 27) and Chelsea vs Inter Milan (Jul 29). The first two contests will be repeats of recent Champions League finals (2012 and 2010 respectively).

As part of the agreement between the tournament organizers and the Singapore Tourism Board, the ICC will be held here annually until 2020.
