Manchester United have today announced the launch of ‘ReUnited14’, a preseason event involving a friendly at Old Trafford between United and Spanish side, Valencia.
The event, which includes family friendly entertainment, will take place on 12th August, with the match kicking off at 7.30pm.
It will be Louis van Gaal’s first game in charge at Old Trafford, with his new assistant manager Ryan Giggs, also back in the dugout for the first time after officially retiring as a player last season.
Speaking at the launch of this event, Ryan Giggs had this to say.
I got a taste in the dugout last season and I’m looking forward to working with Louis. It will be a good introduction to Old Trafford for the new manager and new players.
New signings Ander Herrera and Luke Shaw are expected to make their home debuts, in the match that takes place just a few days before the season gets underway. Juan Mata will also face his former club.
The game will be broadcast live and exclusively on the club channel, MUTV, and will be the first time that the channel has broadcast in HD.
