A statement from the New York Stock Exchange read as the following: Manchester United has today announced the schedule for the club’s pre-season tour of the United States. Tour 2015, presented by Aon, will see the team play four matches against Barcelona, Paris Saint-Germain, Club America and San Jose Earthquakes across the US this July. These matches are part of the International Champions Cup, a tournament that United won during last summer’s tour of the United States.
The tour starts with a match against Mexico City-based Club America on Friday 17 July at Seattle’s CenturyLink Field.
United will then play local MLS team San Jose Earthquakes, who United legend George Best famously played for in the 1980s, on Tuesday 21 July. The venue for this match will be announced in the coming weeks.
The third fixture of the tour on Saturday 25 July will see United face Barcelona at Santa Clara’s Levi’s Stadium, a brand new venue that was only opened in July 2014.
United’s trip concludes with a match against Paris Saint-Germain on Wednesday 29 July at Chicago’s Soldier Field. The club is very familiar with the city having first visited Chicago in the summer of 1950.
