MOST COMMENTED

[DATEBOOK] This summer, the LA Galaxy will play Manchester United for the first time when the teams meet in a friendly July 23 at the Rose Bowl.

The promoter is Relevent Sports, which will organize the Guinness International Champions Cup at which Manchester United will participate. The Galaxy played in the tournament in 2013 but will not take part in 2014.

“We are excited to take on Manchester United at the Rose Bowl Stadium this summer,” said LA Galaxy President Chris Klein in a statement. “We look forward to playing a storied club at a storied venue. As the top club in North America it is important for us to play big games and bring big events to the city of Los Angeles.”

This will be the team’s first visit to North America since back-to-back tours in 2010 and 2011 and the first visit to Los Angeles since 2003 when Manchester United beat Club America, 3-1, at the Los Angeles Coliseum.
 
The LA Galaxy last played at the Rose Bowl Stadium in 2010 in a match against Real Madrid that drew more than 89,000 fans. A year earlier, the Galaxy played then-European champion Barcelona in front of more than 93,000 fans.
