Real Madrid, one of the most storied soccer clubs in history, will play Inter Milan at Cal's Memorial Stadium at 3 p.m. on Saturday, July 26.

Part of the eight-team Guinness International Champions Cup, the match is being brought to Berkeley as "part of our strategy to diversify revenues," said John Wilton, Cal's vice chancellor for administration and finance.

Real plans to train at UCLA while participating in the preseason tournament July 24-Aug. 4.

To accommodate the two international powers, the field turf at the stadium will be replaced by grass. Athletic director Sandy Barbour said the grass will be removed after the game and "moved to a local facility."

Exclusive presale tickets will be available Monday at 9 a.m. for pre-qualified fans, according to the Cal website. Tickets will go on sale to the general public next Friday at 9 a.m. through the Cal ticket office.
