RB Leipzig, one of Germany's marquee clubs, will be preparing for a follow-up campaign to a strong 2023/24 season in which it finished fourth in the Bundesliga, securing a UEFA Champions League spot for next season.

The team, which will train at the Florida Blue Training Center ahead of the much-anticipated clash, is led by German head coach Marco Rose, a Leipzig native with years of experience both as a player and a coach. On the pitch, they featured one of the most in form striking partnerships in Europe last season, with Belgian striker Loïs Openda and Slovenian forward Benjamin Šeško topping the team's scoring charts. Additionally, Leipzig also had one of the hottest rising stars in their ranks, with Dutch attacking midfielder Xavi Simons providing the team with creativity and flair.

"We're really pleased that we've been able to organize another part of our US tour after the stop in New York with the Red Bulls. Inter Miami CF are a unique team in the MLS and offer us great opportunities there. We've also been able to find an attractive opponent for our next friendly in the form of Wolverhampton Wanderers from the Premier League, and this will be the sporting highlight of the second part of our trip," said RB Leipzig Chief Business Officer, Johann Plenge.

Wolverhampton Wanderers FC, who will be based in the Club's Florida Blue Training Center through their 2024 U.S. Tour, return to the United States for the first time in 43 years after a sixth consecutive season in the English top-flight.

The Premier League side, which is led by head coach Gary O'Neil, features several renowned international stars in their squad, including South Korean striker Hwang Hee-chan, Spanish international midfielder Pablo Sarabia, and Brazilian international duo João Gomes and Matheus Cunha.

"Playing Leipzig will be a really good test at an important stage of pre-season for us so, along with West Ham and Crystal Palace, we've got three games of a good standard in the US," said Wolves' head coach Gary O'Neil. "We're going to have a really good base up in Miami - a fantastic training facility, set in a really good area. The facility will help us get some really good work done and we're excited to meet some of the Wolves fans who live in that part of the world, so it should be a really good trip."
