Man United USA Tour In Late July Looking More Likely

manchester united Man United USA Tour In Late July Looking More Likely

Speculation continues that Manchester United will be the opponents in the MLS All-Star Game this summer, to be held in Houston. A July 28th date has been touted. Plus there have been reports of Manchester United touring a few other cities in the United States. Nothing official has been announced yet, but the rumors carry a lot more weight now given that Manchester United announced on their website this week that they will play against Chivas in Guadalajara, Mexico on July 30.

Manchester United’s game in Mexico will be to open the new Chivas Stadium. The agreement was struck as part of the deal to bring striker Javier Hernandez from Chivas to the Old Trafford club.

Also, late Friday, a source told EPL Talk that Paul Scholes is expected to be appearing at a soccer clinic in Orlando, Florida this summer.

As soon as we hear more news, we’ll let you know. But in addition to Manchester United, there have been stories linking other Premier League clubs to touring the States this summer including Tottenham Hotspur, Manchester City, Arsenal, Newcastle United, Everton, Bolton Wanderers and Fulham. In addition to English clubs, we know that Valencia will be touring the States. But so too may be AC Milan and other European teams.

    This is a good news / bad news development. It does look like NA is definitely on the cards, but there used to be about 5-6 locations rumoured for 3-4 matches. Now one is definitely tied up in Mexico, and another very likely in Houston. Neither really works for more northern United supporters.

  2. Kevin says:

    Philly is one of the rumored cities. I read that there was something in the Philly Union’s season ticket booklet that spoke on this…

  3. Jersey Mac says:

    Is there any games in New York or Boston?I wouldn’t mine taking a trip down from Montreal to Man Utd.

  4. Jonny says:

    Mark Ogden reported on twitter that the tour stops will be Toronto, Boston, Philly, Chicago, Houston and Guadalajara

    Word was the MLS All-Star game may feature Man U. Hope they take it seriously. There last US tour came into Chicago and it was a RIP-OFF!

    When Real Madrid came here it was a good match and so was Everton’s trip to Chicago to play the Fire. Frankly Man U owes the US fans a real effort this time around. I may be very reluctant to buy the tickets which will be expensive.

    Chicago area fans may be interested in the recently announced Sister Cities tournament hosted by the Fire May 18 through 22. It could be a much better value.http://www.chicago-fire.com/news/2010/04/fire-announce-sister-cities-tournament

    Scholesy is doing the camp in early June, so unlikely to be linked to a tour!

    KC, MO is reporting a match at Arrowhead Stadium. This via MLS team KC Wizards owner Twitter message. KC? An odd spot but Mancs traveling will love the old pubs in the Westport District! Players will hate the pitch (NFL field). Tour will work b/c Neville, Giggs, Scholes will tour due to not on international duty, plus Hargreaves and the youngsters ‘ole Kiko and Obertan will come along. Not a wise move for the Glazers…the green and gold movement will gain home soil momentum for Glazers Out.
