Turkish side Galatasaray SK of coach Erik Gerets is the third club, with AFC Ajax and Manchester United FC, to be confirmed to play in the LG Amsterdam Tournament. The matches will be played in the Amsterdam ArenA on Friday 4 and Saturday 5 August 2006.
Galatasaray, the most successful club of Turkey, returns to the LG Amsterdam Tournament after three years. In 2003, the red and yellow squad, then with former Ajax player Frank de Boer, captured third place behind Ajax and Internazionale. The International Event Partnership (IEP) expects to announce the fourth and final participant shortly.
