Since 2010, five visits to the USA have seen United welcome more than 1.3million supporters to games, including over 109,000 fans to see a victory over Real Madrid at the Big House in Ann Arbor in 2014 - a record for a soccer match in the US.
Speaking of the summer plans, Manchester United Executive Vice-Chairman, Ed Woodward, said:
“The tour is a central part of the team’s preparation for a long and intense campaign and this is the second consecutive year that we will travel to the US. The training facilities are world class and the games will be played in front of passionate crowds, making it an ideal environment for the players to gear up for the new season.
“The club, manager and team always receive a great welcome when visiting America, with our millions of US fans always keen to get closer to Manchester United.”
