Man. City to Play in Shanghai
Adjust font size:

English Premier League team Manchester City today was confirmed as the fourth international club to compete in August's Shanghai International Soccer Tournament, the Associated Press reported.
The club will join Spain's Athletico Madrid, Japan's Kashima Antlers, and hometown heroes Shanghai Shenhua in the tournament, organizers said.

Manchester City will likely be the most closely watched team in the tournament, with a lineup featuring Chinese international Sun Jihai.

Officials from the team, which lost nine of its last 10 league matches to finish 15th in the Premier League, say they're looking to sign four world-class players over the summer.

The tournament will use a new scoring system that awards teams an additional point for each goal scored, on top of the usual three points for a win, one point for a draw, and zero points for a loss.
