French soccer power Paris Saint-Germain will meet England’s Leicester City at the StubHub Center on July 30 as part of the 10-team International Champions Cup.

Presale tickets for the 8:30 p.m. exhibition will be available beginning April 27 at 10 a.m. Pacific time. To participate in the presale, register at www.internationalchampionscup.com.

Tickets will go on sale to the general public on April 29.

Other sites for the 15-game tournament, which runs July 23 through Aug. 13, were announced last month. Those venues include the Rose Bowl, which will play host to English clubs Chelsea and Liverpool on July 27.

Paris Saint-Germain, which made it to the quarterfinals of the UEFA Champions League this spring, has won the last four Ligue 1 titles, and Leicester City is closing in on its first English crown, leading the Premier League by five points with four games to play.

Leicester City began the season as a 5,000-to-1 long shot to win the EPL. The July 30 match will be the Foxes’ only game in the U.S. this summer.

The number of first-team regulars who will play for either club might not be known until shortly before kickoff because star players such as Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Angel Di Maria and David Luiz of Paris Saint-Germain and Leicester’s Jamie Vardy, Wes Morgan and N’Golo Kante figure to spend much of the summer playing for their national teams in either the European Championships or the Copa America.

The StubHub Center played host to a sold-out ICC game last July, with the Galaxy beating Mexico’s Club America, 2-1.
