Full Details Of Pre-Season Tour Announced

Preparation for the new season starts in approximately five weeks with the “DHL pre-season tour” kicking it all off. Full details of the tour were finally announced yesterday, and it includes a lot of travelling for those reds wishing to attend.

The tour will start in Durban, South Africa, on the 18th July, where we will come up against AmaZulu FC. Then three days later we will travel to Cape Town where we will face Ajax, the winners of the Eredivisie, on the 21st July.

Next up is a game against Shanghai Shenhua on the 25th July. This is the first time in three years that the club has gone to China for the pre-season tour, and David Gill is excited about returning:

“We were overwhelmed by the passion and excitement generated by the fans who came out to support us and we hope many more join us again this year.”

Finally our reds will finish off the tour in Oslo. This is the first time in 10 years that we have toured Norway in the pre-season, we will come up against Valerenga on the 5th of August, which will be our final warm-up game before the 2012-2013 season gets underway.
