Atlanta United's Mercedes-Benz Stadium will host the match on August 1, with Juve following European clubs including Bayern Munich, Real Madrid, Manchester United, Chelsea and Arsenal as featuring in the fixture.

Former Juve player Sebastian Giovinco and his fellow MLS stars David Villa, Kaka and Bastian Schweinsteiger were among the players to be selected for the match last season.

"It will be a pleasure for us to play in this game and feel the energy of MLS, an ever-growing league attracting more and more passionate fans," Juve coach Massimiliano Allegri said in a statement.
