Manchester United and Real Madrid are set to attract a record-breaking crowd into the Michigan Stadium on Saturday, when the two juggernauts of European football meet in a hotly anticipated International Champions Cup match.

The pre-season tournament offers little more than a fitness boost to the players, but for American onlookers, it is a rare opportunity to catch a glimpse of arguably the world's two most famous clubs.

Pablo Polo of Marca reported the expected commotion when kick-off arrives, saying, "it's expected that the fixture will break the attendance record for a football game in the United States."

Michigan Stadium, otherwise known as the Big House, has the capacity to pack a crowd of 109,901. Its record attendance currently stands at 105,591, accumulated during the 2014 Winter Classic ice hockey match between the Toronto Maple Leafs and the Detroit Red Wings.
