The International Champions Cup is slated for its sixth tournament this summer, and it is shaping up to be the largest one yet. 

The annual showcase of European teams as they go through their preseasons will feature 18 teams from six leagues, has learned. According to The New York Times, the competition will be played in tandem with a women's event, the first of its kind. Manchester City, PSG and the NWSL's North Carolina Courage are signed on, with a fourth team to be named.

On the men's side, the Premier League's "Big Six" of Manchester City, Manchester United, Liverpool, Tottenham, Arsenal and Chelsea will all be making the trip. They'll be joined by La Liga's Barcelona, Real Madrid, Atletico Madrid and Sevilla; Bundesliga stalwarts Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund; Serie A powers Juventus, Roma, AC Milan and Inter Milan; Ligue 1 champion-to-be PSG and Portugal's Benfica to make up the field that will play its matches across the United States, Europe and Singapore.
