Manchester United Tour to USA Schedule is an important news today. Manchester United Tour to USA Schedule is now finalised as they have announced the dates for their pre-season tour of the US in the summer via their official website.
Manchester United Tour to USA Schedule
The Red Devils’ tour will kick off against Club America on Thursday 19, July in Phoenix. And that will be followed up by a match against the San Jose Earthquakes on Sunday 22, July in Santa Clara.
United’s shirt sponsors Chevrolet are keen for the club to visit the Far East as the American car giant seeks to expand its business in that part of the world and were enthusiastic about that trip taking place this summer.
However, after months of discussions between the United board and manager Van Gaal the club will once again head across the Atlantic for a four-game tour signed off by the manager.
Said tour will mark the fifth time United have made their preparations for the season in the United States, and the second consecutive under Jose Mourinho’s reign. It will be presented by AON and matches will be available for viewing on MUTV.
Manchester United Match in USA
United will play once again in the International Champions’ Cup, the tournament they won in America last summer.
This time, though, with Van Gaal’s influence over all matters of club business growing ever stronger, the club will squeeze four games in to 12 days before heading back to England on July 30 in order to recover in time for the start of the Barclays Premier League season on August 8.
United have also promised a celebrity visit, following the cast of popular TV series Game of Thrones, as well as Julia Roberts and Gary Oldman, dropping in for a chat during the last tour.
Perhaps there will also be a visit from their former striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic. The Swede only recently left United to join MLS side LA Galaxy but could pop in to have a bit of fun with his ex-colleagues.
