Manchester United 2011 US Tour: Official Video

Manchester United has released the above video to promote its 2011 summer tour of the United States.

The video stars Wayne Rooney, Javier Hernandez, the Da Silva twins and other Manchester United players combined with archival footage from last summer’s tour of the United States.

Don’t be surprised if this will be Manchester United’s last tour of the United States for several years. As a neutral soccer fan, we’re blessed to have United come here two years in a row. But I wouldn’t be shocked if United decides to travel to Asia each summer for the next few years at least to increase the size of their “football empire” in that part of the world.

That said, Manchester United is currently the most popular Premier League team in the United States with, as the video points out a following of 9 million fans.

    Cant seem to purchase tickets on the site

  2. Christian says:

    Incredibly excited for these events. As was mentioned in the previous entry it’s a shame that the Red Bulls match isn’t happening in Giants Stadium as I live in NYC but I know the tickets will be next to impossible to get at RBS. I’ll gladly take a trip to Boston or DC for the day to see United. Frankly getting to see United vs Barcelona in DC kind of is a must for me as I doubt I’ll ever get to see that matchup in person ever otherwise.

    Gaffer do you know anthing about where the open trainings will be at. And how can I get tickets.

    • King Eric says:

      needs to be done via the one united usa website. you purchase their membership and then pass for that particular event.

  4. Marc says:

    United supporters hear my call and boycott the tour. DO NOT give any money to the Glazers. They are raping the Club we love to try and save their other failures here in America.

    • The Juice says:

      I can see where your coming from Marc, but asking for American Manchester United fans to boycott these matches is a little ridiculous. The majority of United fans in the U.S. will likely never see their club play in a stadium due to the fact they play across the pond. I’m not quite sure how many followers you will acquire on this crusade, considering these are meaningless matches compared to the 70,000+ that attend United home games for The Premiere League, FA Cup, Champions League, and League Cup. Best of luck.
