Manchester United Announce 2009 Asia Summer Tour

man utd asia tour 2009 Manchester United Announce 2009 Asia Summer TourManchester United has announced that the club will be playing several friendlies in Asia during the summer of 2009.

The projected dates for the summer tour, as of press time, are:

  • Malaysia – July 18, Malaysia XI v Man United
  • Indonesia – July 20, Indonesia XI v Man United
  • Korea – July 24, FC Seoul v Man United
  • China – July 26, Greentown FC v Man United

Manchester United will depart for Asia on July 16.

In the summer of 2008, Man United toured South Africa and Nigeria instead of Asia. The last time the Red Devils had a preseason tour in Asia was 2007. However, the 2009 summer tour marks the fifth time in the last decade that the club has toured Asia.

Not surprisingly, Man United’s 2009 summer tour is very similar to Chelsea’s 2008 summer tour where the Blues visited China, Macau and Kuala Lumpur. It’s not surprising because both clubs employed the same Asian football promoter, ProEvents.
