The excitement of the upcoming 2014 World Cup final is somewhat tempered by the knowledge that the tournament, which so many anticipated for so long, is almost over.
It will be nearly four years before another World Cup match is played after Germany and Argentina square off. As with the Olympics, what makes the World Cup special is also what makes it hard to say goodbye to.
For new American soccer fans, the end of this World Cup might feel particularly sudden. Just as this recent discovery burst into their consciousness, it's about to go away. But take heart.
Many of the game's biggest stars will make appearances in the United States in the coming weeks; a few will be excused after playing with their national sides deep into this World Cup.
The vast majority of those luminaries who do make the trip will be taking part in the Guinness International Champions Cup (ICC), but others will arrive with their clubs to play one-off friendlies.
Either way, here are some of the prominent clubs coming to America in the next month. These powerhouse soccer enterprises will bring with them some of the most recognizable names of the 2014 World Cup.
