They will then take on Melbourne Victory at the 100,000-seat Melbourne Cricket Ground on 15 July and face Patrick Vieira’s Crystal Palace at the same venue on 19 July. Clubs have not been on pre-season tours in recent years because of Covid-19.
Manchester United chief operating officer Collette Roche said: “It has been two years since the club has been able to travel on an international pre-season tour, so we can’t wait to get going this summer and reconnect with our fans in south-east Asia and Australasia.”
The club’s football director John Murtough said the club will have “excellent training facilities and high-quality opposition” on their summer tour. United could also have a new manager in place by the time of the tour, with head coach Ralf Rangnick currently in interim charge after the sacking of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
