United to play Arsenal in New York during Tour 2023

Friday 28 April 2023 15:00

Manchester United will play Arsenal in New York this summer as part of the club’s pre-season tour of the USA, bringing one of the greatest rivalries in the Premier League to American soil for the first time.

The match, to be played on 22 July at MetLife Stadium, will be United’s first Tour 2023 fixture after arriving in the US, providing the finale to a three-day stay in the famous city for Erik ten Hag and his travelling squad.

United and Arsenal are two of the most famous and successful clubs in English football, with 114 major trophies between them and a long history of thrilling and intensely competitive encounters – but they have never played each other before in the US. 

The must-see game marks the start of a two-week tour of the US by United, marking the first time in five years that the Reds have played in America, and the first time in 12 years in New York.

Manchester United’s Football Director, John Murtough, said:

“Manchester United versus Arsenal is one the most famous and anticipated fixtures in the English football calendar and supporters from both clubs understand how big the rivalry between the two sides is. It’s great to be able to bring this match to New York and play in front of what I am sure will be a sell-out crowd.

“I know Erik and the squad are looking forward to starting their pre-season preparations in New York and utilising the great sporting facilities available to us in the city. The last time United played in New York was in 2011, so we are excited to be returning after such a long wait. There is no better location to kick start the club’s Tour 2023.”
