(KMOV) – The St. Louis Convention and Visitors Commission have announced international soccer is coming back to St. Louis in August.

Real Madrid will play Inter Milan at the Edward Jones Dome on August 10.

Tickets for the game will go on sale at 9 a.m. Monday for the general public. All Rams season-ticket holders will have the opportunity to buy tickets early through a pre-sale.

Tickets can be bought at all Ticketmaster locations or Ticketmaster.com.

Natural grass will replace the field turf at the Edward Jones Dome, which holds 19,000 more people than the 48,000 who flocked to Busch Stadium to see Manchester City take on Chelsea in May.

According to the St. Louis Business Journal, that game brought $1.5 to $2 million to the area.

There will not be a conflict with the St. Louis Rams as they hold their first exhibition game on August 17.

News 4's Brian Feldman spoke to local soccer analyst Bill McDermott about the match.
