“Our pre-season tour is an integral part of the squad’s preparation for the forthcoming season and after what will be a forty-four year absence since we last played in Perth, we are delighted to be returning to Western Australia to play not just one, but two games against Perth Glory and Leeds United.
“As well as preparing for the season ahead, the club will also have the opportunity to engage with our loyal fans in Australia, who last got the chance to see us play in Sydney in 2013.”
The club has reserved some of the best seats in the stadium exclusively for its Season Ticket Holders, Executive Club Members and Official Members, available to purchase before Tuesday 11 December. More information can be found at www.unitedinperth.com.
