The Fifa World Cup may have been going for less than a week, but Sky Sports is already making its plans for the 2014-15 football season.

The pay-TV provider is to provide live coverage of the International Champions Cup, which is to be staged in the US during July and August.

Eight top European clubs will take part in the tournament as part of their pre-season preparations, with three English sides involved.

Liverpool, Manchester City and Manchester United are set to participate, along with Inter and AC Milan, Roma, Real Madrid and Olympiacos.

The teams will be split into two groups of four, with the respective winners progressing to the final.

The action gets underway on Thursday July 24th at 12:30am with AC Milan v Olympiacos, with Inter v Real Madrid live at 10:30pm on Saturday July 26th.

Sky Sports viewers have two games to look forward to the day after, with two of the Barclays Premier League sides in action.

English champions Man City face AC Milan at 9pm, before Liverpool - who finished runners-up in the Barclays Premier League last season - take on Olympiacos at 11pm.

Both games are to be broadcast live on Sky Sports 1 HD.

Roma v Real Madrid will line up at 2am on Tuesday July 29th, before Man City face Liverpool in an all-English showdown at 11:30pm on Wednesday July 30th.

Matches are to be staged across a number of US cities, including Denver, Washington DC, Dallas, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Chicago, New York and Minneapolis.

The winners of Group A and Group B will face off in the International Champions Cup final in Miami on Monday August 4th.
