Barcelona vs Spurs - where and when

Barcelona and Tottenham Hotspur will do battle in the massive Rose Bowl, which is set in Pasadena, California and used to be the home of LA Galaxy around the turn of the millennium.

It takes place at 4am BST in the early hours of Sunday morning (July 29) - so that's 8pm local time Saturday night or 11pm if you're on the East coast.

When Barcelona and Tottenham Hotspur meet in the International Champions Cup, they will be a pair of teams in very different places. And we'll tell you how to live stream it from absolutely anywhere.

Even though Barcelona are the La Liga champions, they start the 2018/19 season without Andres Iniesta - their talisman of the last 16 years. Having brought in potential Brazlian stars Malcom and Arthur, Barcelona will be looking to build towards a much better Champions League campaign this season. For Spurs, it feels like the last few seasons of promise need to finally bear fruit if they want to keep hold of star striker Harry Kane and manager Mauricio Pochettino.

This is Barcelona's first game in the 2018 International Champions Cup pre-season tournament, while Spurs have notched up a 4-1 win against Roma.

International Champions Cup 2018 format

18 teams, two weeks, a league format...you may have guessed that this isn't your regulation kind of football tournament.

Each team plays three matches with 3 points for a win in 90 minutes, 2 points for a win on penalties, 1 point for a loss on penalties and 0 points for a loss. Whoever has the most points when all the matches are completed is the International Champions Cup winner, with head-to-head being the tie breaker if the top teams are level on points.
