Inter sign up for Dublin tournament

Champions League winners Inter Milan are to head for Dublin to play in a four-team tournament next summer.

Under a 10-year, multi-million Euro agreement between the Football Association of Ireland, Endemol Sport and sports agency Iconic, Inter and an Airtricity League XI will take part in the inaugural event at the Aviva Stadium on July 30 and 31, 2011.

The organisers have also promised to secure a top Barclays Premier League club and another big name from Europe to complete the line-up.

The FAI will be guaranteed a seven-figure sum each year over the length of the agreement.
