AS Roma will not take part in this year's International Champions Cup due to a fixture clash in the qualifying round of the Europa League next season.

The Italians were scheduled to play Chivas Guadalajara, Arsenal and Benfica in the United States in July but will now be replaced by Fiorentina

"We looked at every available option in order to avoid withdrawing, however, in the end, the decision had to be made in light of next season's commitments," Roma chief executive Guido Fienga told the club's website.

"I apologise to all the fans hoping to come and watch us this summer. We share your disappointment but I want to assure you all that we will return soon.
