MOST COMMENTED

[MLS] Manchester United is headed to North America for a five-game tour of Canada, Mexico and the United States highlighted by a match against MLS's all-stars on July 28 (TV: ESPN2, TeleFutura, 8:30 pm ET). The AT&T MLS All-Star will culminate the four-game tour of MLS markets before heading to Mexico to open the new stadium in Guadalajara.
 
The North American tour, presented by Major League Soccer and Creative Artists Agency, will be United's first since 2004.
 
“Manchester United are among the most recognized and successful clubs in the world, and we are pleased to have them compete against our All-Stars and two MLS clubs this summer,” MLS Commissioner Don Garber said. “We are proud to once again present our supporters with one of the most compelling All-Star Game formats in sports and we believe Manchester United’s North American tour will be a tremendous celebration of the sport following the 2010 World Cup in South Africa.”

United's first game, against Scottish club Celtic, will take place at Toronto's Rogers Centre on July 16, just six days after the end of the World Cup.

United is expected to be without many of its World Cup stars.
 
Two MLS teams will face United: Philadelphia Union on July 21 at Lincoln Financial Field and the Kansas City Wizards on July 25 at Arrowhead Stadium.

United plays Chivas of Mexico on July 30 to open the new stadium in Guadalajara. The game was arranged as part of the recent transfer of Javier Hernandez from Chivas to United.

July 16 --
Manchester United vs. Celtic (at Toronto's Rogers Centre)

    I actually thought the above post was going somewhere... I can't believe the overhype on this one. "Big Announcement" rumors were rattling around in the pre-dawn hours. Wouldn't this be a good point from which to explore the long history of Euro Friendlies, starting with NY Giants/Vienna Hakoah in 1926, selling out the Polo Grounds in NYC? Our system has been calling out to esteemed members of the pro/rel community for years. They sell out, but never seem to lend the cache that turns to owner cash.

    Finally, the MLS kahunas scheduled the All-Star game in the evening instead of the dead heat mid afternoon.

    I would like to see the best team in the league face them, The LA GaLAxy.
