Lyon will face Inter Milan, Chelsea and a third opponent to be named later as they close out preparations for the 2018-19 season at the International Champions Cup.

OL have joined a prestigious list of clubs participating in the 6th annual International Champions Cup (ICC). This renowned preseason tournament, held every summer since its creation in 2013, increasingly attracts the biggest clubs in planet football.

This year's competition, which runs from July 20 to August 12, will see Lyon face world-class opposition in the form of Inter Milan (August 4 in Lecce, Italy), Chelsea (August 7 in London) and a third team to be announced soon.

Eighteen of the best European teams will meet in Europe, USA and Singapore this summer. The format of the tournament has been changed this year to designate a single winner after 27 games played on three continents.

These high-profile matches are the perfect way for OL to end their preseason, which kicks off with a friendly against FC Sion on July 13. Bruno Genesio's men faced Inter in last year's tournament, where they lost by the slimmest of margins (0-1).
