Real Salt Lake vs Real Madrid

The Real Madrid soccer team is in town and will face MSL’s Real Salt Lake in a showdown on Aug. 12.

Many people think Real Madrid is the greatest soccer club ever and this tour will be its only North American appearance of 2006.

The Madrid club will embark on a day trip Wednesday to Seattle to face MLS leaders D.C. United that evening. Other events include a VIP welcome press conference on Tuesday, a reception hosted by Utah Governor Jon M. Huntsman and First Lady Mary Kaye Huntsman on Thursday evening, an Adidas commercial shoot featuring David Beckham and Raul, and Friday's ticketed training session and invitation-only team autograph session, both at Rice-Eccles Stadium at the U of U in Salt Lake City.

Real Madrid, led by World Cup superstars David Beckham and Ronaldo, takes on Real Salt Lake Saturday at Rice-Eccles Stadium at the University of Utah.

It should be an entertaining massacre.
