Written by admin

Manchester United have announced their first fixtures for this summer’s pre-season tour.

Jose Mourinho will take his side Stateside once again, where they will compete in the International Champions Cup against some of Europe’s biggest teams.

But as well as games against more local opposition, United will face off against opponents from the MLS and Mexico.

They will travel to the Phoenix University Stadium on July 19 to take on Club America.

United then head to the Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara to face the San Jose Earthquakes on July 22. They took on Real Madrid in the same venue last summer.

The International Champions Cup fixtures are expected to be confirmed in the next week, with United set to face off against Liverpool in the world’s second largest stadium.

Over 107,000 fans can fit into the Michigan Stadium – also known as ‘The Big House’.

It will be United’s second trip to the eye-catching venue, which was filled to capacity when they played Real Madrid there four years ago.
