In July 2010 right after the World Cup, the Manchester United squad will go to the USA to prepare for their 2010/2011 season. They will be visiting Toronto, Philadelphia, Kansas and Houston.



The squad will be lead by Ryan Giggs and it will include stars like Paul Scholes, Edwin van der Sar, Darren Fletcher, Antonio Valencia, John O’Shea, Michael Owen and Dimitar Berbatov. Accompanying them, will be a number of promising youngsters like Federico Macheda and the da Silva twins.

The first stop is a training camp at the home of their new shirt sponsors AON. Then on 16th, they will head to Rogers Center in Toronto for the match against Celtic. Followed by a return to Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia, where they have already played in 2003 and 2004 on July 21 to play against Philadelphia Union. Four days later, they head to Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas to play against Kansas City. The last of the friendlies is the game against MLS All-Stars in the Reliant Stadium.

Two days later, United will be in Mexico to open Chivas’ new 45,000 seater stadium in Guadalajara.

Alex Ferguson said:

“It’s great to be going back to North America. I enjoyed the last two tours there in 2003 and 2004 immensely. The quality of the facilities is outstanding and there is a real enthusiasm in the crowds. It’s especially pleasing to be going in a World Cup year, when the interest in football will be at its height.”
