This summer’s pre-season tour will feature Manchester United taking on Los Angeles side LA Galaxy for the first time, in the Chevrolet Cup at the Rose Bowl in July.

Although Louis van Gaal’s men will be treading new ground in terms of the opposition, it will not be the first time the Reds have visited LA during pre-season preparations.

Back in 2003, United took on Club America at the LA Coliseum, where a brace from Diego Forlan, allied to a strike from the previous season’s top goalscorer Ruud van Nistelrooy, made it two wins out of two on the tour.

The current squad will be hoping for a similar run of results as the Reds prepare to face stern opposition in the shape of Inter Milan, Real Madrid and Roma, in addition to the Galaxy.

Tickets are still available for the match against LA Galaxy on July 27 and can be purchased here.
