When does pre-season start for the Reds?

Monday 08 July 2024 08:00

When does Manchester United's pre-season begin?

That's the question a lot of our fans have been asking, as excitement builds towards our 2024/25 campaign.

Erik ten Hag's contract extension and the release of our adidas home kit will no doubt have boosted the positive vibes and, as the Euros and Copa America begin to draw to a close, attention will soon turn towards the new Premier League season.

Well, the answer to the above question is actually a lot sooner than you realise...

The Reds will report back to Carrington today (Monday 8 July) to undergo the usual tests ahead of our first friendly, which is just one week away.

Players who have not been away with their national teams this summer - the likes of Antony, Casemiro, Willy Kambwala, Victor Lindelof, Harry Maguire, Andre Onana, Marcus Rashford and Aaron Wan-Bissaka - could feature in our first training photos and videos this week.

Kobbie Mainoo, Luke Shaw and Tom Heaton are still at Euro 2024 with England while Alejandro Garnacho, Lisandro Martinez and Facundo Pellistri are in the semi-finals of the Copa America with Argentina and Uruguay, respectively.

There are just seven days until we play our first pre-season match, away to Rosenborg (Monday 15 July, 17:00 BST), so Erik ten Hag will be keen to get his players up to speed as soon as possible.
