CHARLOTTE, NC (AP) -- Liverpool will play Manchester City, AC Milan and Olimpiakos during a preseason US exhibition tour, and Manchester United will face Inter Milan and Roma.

Liverpool opens against Olimpiakos on July 27 at Chicago's Soldier Field as part of Group B in the eight-club Guinness International Champions Cup, organizers said Thursday. The Reds face Manchester City at New York's Yankee Stadium on July 30 and AC Milan on Aug. 2 at Bank of America Stadium in Charlotte, home of the NFL's Carolina Panthers.

Manchester United plays Roma at Denver's Sports Authority Field on July 26, then meets Inter Milan on July 29 at FedEx Field in Landover, Md. Group A also includes Real Madrid.

Some stars may not be available for the matches, depending on when their national teams are eliminated from the World Cup.

Games also will be played in Arlington, Texas; Glendale, Ariz.; Minneapolis; Philadelphia; Pittsburgh; and one additional city from July 24-Aug. 2.

The final will be Aug. 4 at Sun Life Stadium in Miami Gardens, Fla.
