Soccer fans, get ready for quite the weekend in July.

As part of the 2014 Guinness International Champions Cup, Liverpool FC will face Olympiacos at Soldier Field on July 27. This matchup will occur one day after the Chicago Fire face off against Barclays Premier League side Tottenham Hotspur at Toyota Park, setting up a classic doubleheader in the middle of the summer.

Liverpool and Olympiacos will face off in one of 12 different cities taking place between July 24 and Aug. 2. They are grouped with AC Milan and Machester City, while Real Madrid, Inter Milan, Manchester United and AS Romas will compete in the other group. The final between the two group winners will take place in Sun Life Stadium in Miami.

Check out Pro Soccer Talk for a full lineup of the games taking place across the country.

For the Fire, it'll be the fifth time they welcome an English team to the Windy City. They currently hold a 2-2-0 record in such matches.
