 2017 pre-season friendlies and exporting derbies

This year's International Champions Cup features a host of eye-catching derbies and match-ups between some of football's biggest rivals.

The annual club friendly competition will take place in the USA, China and Singapore during July, with the most mouth-watering games undoubtedly set to take place in the States.

Manchester United, Man City and Tottenham are England's representatives in the USA, where they'll be joined by European big hitters Barcelona, Real Madrid, Juventus, Paris Saint-Germain and AS Roma.

Many of the games will be featured on television, while platforms such as the Unibet android app will be offering odds on all the games.

The app has a great range of betting opportunities, including a wide variety of live in-play betting options and live streaming on offer too, which always adds to the excitement.

One of the biggest derbies in world football offers an excellent opportunity to check out the app, with United and City set to do battle in Houston on July 20.

The prospect of the two Manchester giants meeting on foreign soil for the first time should ensure the ICC attracts widespread attention.

All of the clubs involved have supporters around the world, and the tournament gives the clubs the chance to engage with those fans while boosting their commercial potential.

US-based United fans could see a very different look in the team's striking department by the time they meet their big rivals, with Zlatan Ibrahimovic leaving Old Trafford and Wayne Rooney set for a move to Everton.

City boss Pep Guardiola has already been busy in the transfer market, adding Bernardo Silva and Ederson to his squad, but he is sure to make even more signings ahead of the new season.

While United and City do battle for the English bragging rights, perhaps the highlight of the US leg of the ICC will be the meeting between Real Madrid and Barcelona in Miami on July 29.

Spain's big two have had quiet summers to date, with Barca's signing of Gerard Deulofeu from Everton the only notably acquisition so far.

Both sides should have their star men on show in the US, with Lionel Messi already committing his future to Barcelona by agreeing a new deal, while Madrid insist Ronaldo is going nowhere despite rumours of a return to United.

Rounding off proceedings in the States is a clash between AS Roma and Juventus in Massachusetts on July 30.

With around 14 percent of the state's population of Italian descent, the game should attract a bumper crowd and further highlights how clubs use the ICC to engage with fans away from their home countries.
