Agoda in the News lines up hotel specials in Melbourne for the International Champions Cup

SINGAPORE (3 June, 2015), one of Asia’s leading hotel booking sites and part of Nasdaq-listed Priceline Group (Nasdaq:PCLN), is giving football fans access to limited time deals on accommodation in Melbourne for the Australian leg of Football’s International Champions Cup. The competition will be held this year from 11 July to 5 August.

First held in 2013, the Cup was conceived as a way to add a fresh level of spectacle to the standard European club preseason tour. That first year, eight top clubs vied for the top spot, with Real Madrid taking the crown in a match in Miami in front of over 70,000 people. The tournament in 2014 took things to even greater heights, with Manchester United coming out on top in a game in front of nearly 110,000 fans.

This year promises to bring even more excitement and spectacle to the acclaimed event, which will move to China and the USA after Melbourne. Real Madrid, Manchester City, and AS Roma will be playing in Australia’s southern capital at the Melbourne Cricket Ground. Tickets and information can be found at

Agoda has made finding a place to stay easy by highlighting ten hotels with superb deals targeted to match goers. Melbourne is famously one of the world’s best event destinations and consistently named one of the world’s most livable cities. It is known as Australia’s cultural capital. Filled with museums, architecture, musical performance, street art, and endless outdoor attractions to ensure as much fun and entertainment off the pitch as on.
