Yankee Stadium hosts Real Madrid and A.C. Milan

In its second-ever soccer match, Yankee Stadium played host to two of the biggest powerhouses in the UEFA Champions League as Real Madrid and A.C. Milan squared off in a friendly during the World Football Challenge on Wednesday night. Last month, the Stadium hosted Chelsea FC and Paris Saint-Germain.

Immediately after the Yankees victory last Sunday against Seattle, the Stadium's grounds crew got to work. The final result was quite a sight, blending the baseball features and elegance of Yankee Stadium with a full-length football pitch. 

And just like last month, Mariano Rivera was on hand to participate in the pregame coin toss.
