United will visit the United States this summer as part of their 2014 preseason tour ahead of their 2014/15 Barclays Premier League campaign.

This will be the team’s first visit to North America since the club’s two successful back-to-back tours in 2010 and 2011 and the first visit to Los Angeles since 2003. In their last visit to Southern California, two goals by Uruguayan forward Diego Forlan and a single strike by Netherlands forward Ruud van Nistelrooy carried Manchester United past Mexican side Club America, 3-1, at the Los Angeles Coliseum.
Following the match against the Galaxy, Manchester United will take part in the 2014 Guinness International Champions Cup. The English giants will open against A.S. Roma on July 26 in Denver before facing Inter Milan on July 29 in Washington D.C. and Real Madrid on August 2 in Ann Arbor, Michigan.
