The 2024 edition will see games against Premier League rivals with United meeting the Gunners at the SoFi stadium in Los Angeles on 27 July (3pm UK time).

A week later and United will travel to South Carolina for the first time and face Liverpool at the University of South Carolina’s (USC) William Brice Stadium, Columbia (6pm UK time). The fixture will be a repeat of the 2018 meeting between the clubs in Michigan Stadium that generated a crowd of 101,000, the largest ever for a football match in the US.

Football director John Murtough said: “We had an incredible time during last year’s visit to the US and we are pleased to be returning with the men’s team to prepare for the 2024/25 season. The popularity of English football is continuously growing in the US, and we’ve come to expect passionate and enthusiastic support from our US fan base.

"They didn’t disappoint last year and everyone at the club is looking forward to reconnecting with those fans again this summer. Having secured some of the best sporting facilities the US has to offer, the club will create the optimum environment for the team to reconnect after their summer break, and work on match fitness before the start of the Premier League season.

"The quality of opponents lined up to play is at the highest level, giving the players an opportunity to gain valuable playing time, and for fans to see some of the most famous teams in world football playing live.

"As is the club’s tradition during preseason, we’re expecting this tour to not only help prepare our first team players, but also give some of our exciting up-and coming academy talent the opportunity to experience training and playing within a first-team environment at some of the most impressive and historical US stadiums."
