ST. LOUIS (AP) — After the success of an exhibition soccer match at Busch Stadium in May, another is coming to St. Louis — this time to the Edward Jones Dome.

Plans were announced Thursday for an exhibition match between Real Madrid and F.C. Internazionale at 1 p.m. Aug. 10. It will be the first-ever men's soccer match at the dome, though the U.S. women's national team played there in 2007.

Tickets go on sale Monday and prices range from $40 to $225.

Officials say a natural-turf field will be installed for the match. The dome will be configured to seat 67,000 spectators.

Manchester City and Chelsea played in front of a sold-out crowd at Busch Stadium on May 23.
