Man United’s resurgence following the appointment of Erik ten Haag has brought life back to Old Trafford after a long wait for a trophy.
That said, United’s qualification for the Champions League shows signs of progress under the guidance of Erik ten Haag.
What’s next for the Red Devils? Manchester United will be involved in a series of friendlies, including participation in the 2023 Soccer Champions Tour in the USA.
Here are Man United Pre-season fixtures ahead of the 2023/2024 football season.
Manchester United vs Leeds United
Date: July 12th, 2023
Venue: Ullevall Stadion, Oslo, Norway.
Competition Type: Friendlies
Although the Whites have been relegated to the Championship following the end of the 2022/23 season, the old rivalry with the Red Devils continues.
The two sides will meet in the Norwegian capital city of Oslo as players commence preparation for the upcoming season in August. Head coach Erik ten Haag is expected to reshape his squad with the test match.
Leeds would play in the EFL Championship after failing to secure their top-flight status at the end of the previous campaign.
Man United vs Leeds United friendly will be played at Ullevaal Stadium, which has 28,000. The Premier League giants have previously played on the ground in 2017, 2019, and 2022, taking on Valerenga, Kristiansund, and Atletico Madrid.
Olympique Lyonnais (Lyon) Vs Manchester United
Date: July 19th, 2023
Venue: BT Murrayfield, Edinburgh, Scotland.
Competition Type: Friendlies
United will take on seven-time French Ligue 1 Champions Lyon at 67,144 seater Murrayfield Stadium in Edinburgh as part of the club’s summer tour.
United would use this fixture as a test for its players ahead of the new season as Erik ten Haag takes a closer look ahead of the tough test. Although Lyon finished 7th last season and failed to qualify for Europe, they remain a strong opposition for United.
The last time the two sides met was in the 2008 UEFA Champions League Round of 16 when United won 2-1 on aggregate to advance to the next round.
Arsenal vs Manchester United
Date: July 22nd, 2023
Venue: MetLife Stadium, East Rutherford, New Jersey.
The Premier League rivalry continues in the US. The 2023 Soccer Champions Tour aims to bring the biggest football clubs in Europe to the North American market.
Arsenal missed out on the Premier League title last season following last gasp slip, which saw Manchester City claim the title to make it three consecutive titles.
The match will be played at MetLife Stadium. It has a seating capacity of 82,500 and plays host to the New York Giants and New York Jets of the NFL.
Manchester United vs Wrexham FC
Date: July 25, 2023
Venue: Snapdragon Stadium, San Diego, California.
Competition Type: Friendlies
Wrexham FC United’s takeover by Hollywood actors Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney has led to an increase in the popularity of the club. The Welsh team earned promotion to League Two ahead of next season.
Now, they’ll take on Manchester United, the Premier League’s most successful team with twenty titles in front of cheering fans. United has over 140 million fans globally, with the majority in the UK, USA, India, and Africa.
Manchester United vs Real Madrid
Date: July 27th, 2023
Venue: NRG Stadium, Houston, Texas.
Competition Type: Friendlies (2023 Soccer Champions Tour in the USA)
Perhaps one of the biggest fixtures of the summer tour, United will take on Real Madrid at NRG Stadium in Houston, Texas. The Whites are the most successful team in Europe, with fourteen Champions League titles.
The Los Blancos were on a tour of North America last year when they took on Club America, Juventus, and FC Barcelona.
Probably one of the biggest fixtures for Erik ten Haag’s men as preparations continue for next season.
Borussia Dortmund vs Manchester United
Date: July 31st, 2023
Venue: Allegiant Stadium, Paradise, Nevada, United States.
The Yellow Wall puts behind last season’s disappointment after failing to secure the Bundesliga title on the final day.
Bayern Munich took advantage of Dortmund’s slip to claim their eleventh consecutive league title.
United and Borussia Dortmund are not new in European football, as the two sides have met in several occasions. The last time the pair met was in 2016, in the International Champions Cup, with Dortmund earning a 4-1 win over the Premier League giants.
