Yesterday the club confirmed that we will be playing Copa Del Rey winners Barcelona, in Gothenburg on the 8th of August as part of our pre-season tour. We played Barcelona last year in America, in a game which we ended up winning 2-1.
David Gill said “Manchester United against Barcelona is one of the top fixtures in world football and we are delighted to work with GotEvent to bring this match to the beautiful city of Gothenburg.” He continued “We have a large following throughout Scandinavia and it’s great that this match will form part of our preparations for the new season.”
The club also announced yesterday that we would be playing a game against Championship side Peterborough. This game will be played at London Road on August 10th, with the club set to take a ‘Manchester United XI’ down south to take on Darren Ferguson’s side.
