I have totally re-vamped The International Champions Cup for FM19 and have now used a Champions League format. The tournament is held in the USA and contains 32 teams all from Europe for the first year. They have been split into 8 groups with the top two teams qualifying for the knockout stage then quarter-finals, semi finals and final. This differs from the real tournament but I have added all the major teams and made the competition more competitive. There are 32 stadiums from the USA and 16 from Europe in use but all stadiums from the USA are in use for the knockout stages.
I have included nearly all of the stadiums in use in the real life competition for 2018 and have drawn the groups as fairly as possible. All histories and player awards are included.
