Tour 2024: United to play Arsenal and Liverpool in USA

Friday 23 February 2024 17:00

Manchester United will be returning to the United States this summer to play a series ​of matches against top-tier opposition in preparation for the men’s first team’s ​2024/25 season.

These will include meetings with two of United’s biggest and most historic Premier League rivals, with Arsenal the opponent in Los Angeles, and Liverpool in Columbia, South Carolina.

It will be the second consecutive year that Manchester United’s men’s first-team squad has toured in the US, providing another opportunity for the club’s large and passionate US fanbase to see the team live.

Last summer, United played four tour games across four states in front of a total 235,168 fans, including a sold-out game against Arsenal in New Jersey, and the club is expecting similar high demand this summer.

This year’s game against Arsenal in Los Angeles will be played on Saturday 27 July at the 70,000-capacity, state-of-the art SoFi stadium, one of the world’s most impressive sports arenas.

The meeting with Liverpool will take place on Saturday 3 August at the University of South Carolina’s (USC) William Brice Stadium, Columbia, representing the biggest club football game ever played in the 77,559-capacity stadium.
United and Liverpool are, of course, the two most successful clubs in English football and the rivalry is one of the most famous in the global game. This will be the first time the teams have met in the US since 2018, when they played in front of 101,000 fans in the Michigan Stadium, one of the largest crowds for a soccer match played in the US.

This year’s Tour 2024 fixture is set to be just as memorable, as United makes its first visit to South Carolina and the state’s prestigious university, which is renowned for its sporting prowess and facilities.

Manchester United’s Football Director, John Murtough, said: “We had an incredible time during last year’s visit to the US and we are pleased to be returning with the men’s team to prepare for the 2024/25 season.

“The popularity of English football is continuously growing in the US, and we’ve come to expect passionate and enthusiastic support from our US fan base. They didn’t disappoint last year and everyone at the club is looking forward to reconnecting with those fans again this summer.

“Having secured some of the best sporting facilities the US has to offer, the club will create the optimum environment for the team to reconnect after their summer break, and work on match fitness before the start of the Premier League season. The quality of opponents lined up to play is at the highest level, giving the players an opportunity to gain valuable playing time, and for fans to see some of the most famous teams in world football playing live.

“As is the club’s tradition during pre-season, we’re expecting this tour to not only help prepare our first-team players, but also give some of our exciting up-and-coming Academy talent the opportunity to experience training and playing within a first-team environment at some of the most impressive and historical US stadiums.”
