(KTVI) - FOX 2 has learned that Real Madrid will take on Inter Milan at the Edward Jones Dome on August 10, 2013.

Fans sold out Busch Stadium for the Manchester City and Chelsea Football Club match last month.  Forty-eight thousand filed into the baseball stadium for the first international soccer match at the new Busch.

The Dome can hold many more – 67,000.  We hear that the Madrid – Milan match will be a day game.  The baseball Cardinals are taking on the Chicago Cubs later that same day.

St. Louis fans will be happy to know the football turf will come out of the dome and natural grass will be put down.  Don’t worry about the Rams.  Their game is August 17, 2013, and the official announcement about the soccer match will be at 11 a.m. Thursday.
