Miami Dolphins owner attracts eight top teams to summer knockout tournament in US

Miami Dolphins owner Stephen Ross’ dream of transforming Sun Life Stadium into a center for soccer in the United States could get a big boost this summer by way of an international tournament involving some top soccer brands.

Details are sparse, as organizers had yet to finalize deals with the teams or media outlets by deadline.

But talks have progressed far enough that Ross’ RSE Ventures has scheduled a press conference for Tuesday in Miami to unveil the single-elimination tournament.

The event’s organizers are close to finalizing terms with Fox on a three-year deal to cover what’s being billed as the International Champions Cup.

While nothing has been signed, initial plans have Fox Soccer Channel carrying the tournament this year, with Fox Sports 1 carrying it in 2014 and 2015.
