Atlético Madrid will play VFB Stuttgart during the preseason to celebrate the German club’s 125th anniversary. The game will take place in the Mercedes-Benz Arena at 17:00 CEST on Aug. 5.

That match will be played a week after the International Champions Cup in Singapore, where Atlético will battle Arsenal and Paris Saint-Germain. After that week in Asia, they will spend a week in Brunico in the Italian Alps, which will be followed up by the Stuttgart match and an as-yet unannounced match on Aug. 9.

After that, Atlético will play Inter Milan at the Wanda Metropolitano in the third game of the International Champions Cup and then head for Estonia, where they will play the European Super Cup against city rivals Real Madrid.

It’s shaping up to be a busy preseason for Atleti, who are increasing their international presence and cache thanks to their travels.
