Pre-season 2024: Guide to United's games

Monday 03 June 2024 14:41

Manchester United's pre-season campaign includes some intriguing fixtures, as we look to prepare for 2024/25.

Victory for Erik ten Hag's side in last month's Emirates FA Cup final means a Community Shield appearance, for the first time since 2016. Jesse Lingard and Zlatan Ibrahimovic scored in a 2-1 win over Leicester City on that occasion.

The clash, against Premier League title winners Manchester City, is scheduled for Saturday 10 August, the weekend before the big kick-off.

Our first fresh look for the 2024/25 season is here, and available now on United Direct.

First up, is a trip to Trondheim in Norway, to face Rosenborg on Monday 15 July, the day after the Euro 2024 final in Germany.

The following Saturday (20 July), we have a friendly at Murrayfield in Edinburgh, for the second successive year, with Rangers providing the opposition in Scotland.

These two fixtures provide perfect preparation for Tour 2024, as the squad flies out to the United States.

Los Angeles is the first stop-off, as United meet Arsenal at SoFi Stadium on 27 July, before heading to San Diego on the last day of the month.

Snapdragon Stadium hosts a clash with continental opposition in the shape of Real Betis, which should provide another interesting challenge.

We finish with a match against arch-rivals Liverpool in South Carolina, on 3 August, for a first contest against the Merseysiders' new boss Arne Slot.

The Community Shield will represent the latest derby with the Blues, following our epic triumph at Wembley.

More details on the fixture will be provided in due course, but it looks set to be our final outing before the Premier League gets under way again the following weekend.
