Manchester United will return to China for the first time in three years to play Shanghai Shenhua as part of Tour 2012, delivered to the world by DHL.
The Chevrolet China Cup will be contested in the match at the Shanghai Stadium on 25 July.
United chief executive David Gill said: "Our pre-season tour is an important process for the club as it allows us to prepare for the season ahead, as well as engage with our fans and partners in different markets. We had a fantastic amount support from our fans last time we played a pre-season game in China. We were overwhelmed by the passion and excitement generated by the fans who came out to support us and we hope many more join us again this year. This is the first time we will play for the Chevrolet China Cup and I think it marks a fantastic start to what we hope to be a long relationship with Chevrolet."
