Summer of Champions
| Varies (18 in 2012)|
The Summer of Champions is an annual set of pre-season fixtures normally between German football clubs and other European football clubs.
Although trophies can be awarded to the winner of certain matches (example: Chevrolet Cup for Hannover 96 vs. Manchester United) there is no tournament winner. All matches are friendlies and the only thing to link them is that they are organised by the same company.
