Inter Milan, Real Madrid Could Play At Yankee Stadium This Summer

A soccer match has not been played in anywhere called Yankee Stadium since the halcyon days of the New York Cosmos. That may change this summer. Officials are actively trying to organize an international friendly between club giants Real Madrid and Inter Milan to be played during the summer at Yankee Stadium, according to a report in Big Apple Soccer.

If the match does happen, it would mark the first time major soccer has been played in the Bronx since Aug. 10, 1976. On that day, the Cosmos walloped the Miami Toros 8-2.

Inter Milan and Real Madrid would surely be able to draw an enormous crowd, as they are among the most storied clubs in Europe. Madrid has won the European championship nine times, while Inter has done it three times, most recently in 2010.

Madrid currently sits atop the table in La Liga, seven points clear of second-place Barcelona. Their team includes the likes of Iker Casillas (Spain), midfielders Kaka (Brazil), Mesut Ozil (Germany) and Xabi Alonso (Spain), and forward Cristiano Ronaldo (Portugal).

Inter is having a bit of a down year, sitting fifth in Serie A. They are still among the most talented teams, though, with players like defender Javier Zanetti (Argentina), midfielder Wesley Sneijder (Netherlands) and forward Diego Forlan (Uruguay).
