UPDATED: On July 13, Manchester United will set foot on the pitch at Gillette Stadium near Boston to play its first of five friendlies across the United States.
The first match against New England Revolution will kick off at 8pm ET on Wednesday, July 13. Are you going? If so, post a comment below in our roll call and let us know. If you haven’t bought a ticket yet, they’re still available. And if you’re a passionate Manchester United supporter who wants to sit (or stand) in the “United” section, visit Ticketmaster, select “Man United Supporters” from the drop-down list and you’re just a few steps away from purchasing your tickets online.
Also be sure to join in the festivities on Tuesday, July 12. Manchester United legends Bryan Robson and Andrew Cole will be at the Banshee Club from 6pm-7pm, and at British Beer Company from 8:30-9:30pm.
To RSVP for the event at Banshee Bar, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with you and your guest’s name in the subject line.

Also, if you’re interested in taking photographs before, during and after the game for EPL Talk or writing a story about the experience of going to see Manchester United in person, let me know in the comments section. I’d love to post many of the photos and stories on this site.
