    Not yet fully agreed it looks like but probably will be at this point. Date was July 28th, in Ann Arbor (the big house, where United played Madrid in 2014). Will definitely go to this!

    Im so there wherever it is. Im guessing its going to be in California though. Probably Levi's stadium in Santa Clara but would love United to grace the Mercedez Benz stadium in Atlanta!

    Don’t really like us playing our rivals in these pointless pre season games, but I suppose it’s good for the fans who wouldn’t ever get the chance to attend something like this who live over there.

    Is it easy to get tickets to these as a ST holder? I'm going to be in America around this time so might go.

    I hope we face some Italian sides this time. Barcelona and Real Madrid are getting boring almost every year.

    I'm a big believer in not playing rivals too often in meaningless games. The fixture kind of loses its billing if done too often and non competitively.

    Hoping we play at The the Coliseum or Rose Bowl this summer. I missed last summers game by one day because I was away. I know Jose likes to set up the training base near UCLA so fairly certain one game here and one up North.

    Don't think being a ST holder changes anything, usually get the tickets through the international champions cup thing I think. They were around $130 each last time I think.

    I hope we face the Galaxy just to see Zlatan again.

    I want Galaxy, not because of Zlatan but I can watch us playing exciting football, attacking and scoring a lot of goals against Galaxy.

    That’s annoying - I’m in the San Francisco area this July but I don’t get in until the day after the Santa Clara game as it’s Comic-Con that weekend in San Diego; frustrating :mad:

    Like Jose thinking he's had the psychological edge over city by beating them in a meaningless game.

    Why have Utd never been to Tampa? It seems like a no brainer with the Glazier owning Utd and the buccaneers.

    There's one with a similar name based in Rio, you may have been thinking of that.

    This is coming off the back of the WC, I would expect a few players to be given time off so I wouldn't bank on seeing a lot of the big names. At least the earlier games. The English players will be there though, they'll have had time to rest.

    Don't players get 4-6 weeks off? I don't expect anyone going to the WC to be there.

    They should have their vacation and go back to Carrington to get fit. Joining the last few days of the tour would be a waste.

    We play CF America on Jul 19, San Jose Earthquakes Jul 22, Milan on Jul 25th, Liverpool the 28th and the last one is vs Real Madrid on the 31st. So by the Liverpool game I'd imagine most would be there. Maybe not De Gea, Martial (if he goes to the WC) and Pogba since I'd guess Spain and France get past the quarter finals (July 6th and 7th). The rest probably not, the game is 3 weeks after the quarter finals.

    I'd expect pretty much anyone who didn't make the quarter finals to be at the main games (late July). De Gea, Romero, Rojo, Fellaini (not gonna be here anyway), Pogba, Lukaku and Martial (if called up/if still here) I would guess are most at risk to miss out, but could still make it by the end of July. England players who would be at risk I'd guess would be Rashford, Lingard, and maybe Young. Possibly Jones/Smalling. 4 years ago we had the games in the ICC after the world cup and most of the big players were there against Real Madrid when I watched it.

    Pereira, Valencia, Blind/Darmian (probably to be sold), Smalling, Jones, Lindelof, Shaw, Bailly, Mata, Matic, herrera, Mctominay, Sanchez and possibly Martial (and then any new signings) would be there.

    Seems like we've got a pre-season game arranged against Bayern Munich in early August, judging by this back and forth between the two clubs on twitter.

    Official: Bayern will face Manchester United in a pre season friendly on Sunday 5 August at Allianz Arena. Kick off time: 20:15 CEST

    You are the first guests in the "renovated" Allianz Arena. Now that this blue tentants are out, there is some colour changes (even if it still is not enough red for a lot of the fans).
