Check out some of the Summer of Soccer nitty-gritty: A glamorous 51-day period includes 48 MLS matches, 15 matches in the 2009 SuperLiga tournament (which features top MLS and Mexican teams), 25 CONCACAF Gold Cup matches, two Mexican national team friendlies as El Tri makes its annual summer swing through the States, two CONCACAF Champions League matches and eight international exhibitions featuring global heavyweights.

Attendance is projected to approach 2 million for the whole shebang. Approximately 12,000 accredited journalists will chronicle the festivities in dispatches, pictures and posts distributed worldwide.

In addition to Barcelona, Real Madrid and Everton, an impressive list of global biggies headed our way includes current Italian rivals AC Milan and Inter Milan, English heavyweight Chelsea FC and Mexican powers Chivas de Guadalajara and Club America. Chelsea and Club America will meet in the Dallas Cowboys' palatial new home on July 26. American football will usually be featured inside the $1 billion behemoth, but history will record "soccer" as the first athletic event there. A week before Chelsea and Club America meet, two Gold Cup quarterfinals will mark the suburban Dallas venue's sporting debut.
