Manchester United To Play Wrexham In Friendly At Snapdragon Stadium

Soccer giant Manchester United will return to the United States for the first time in five years to play the third oldest club in the world and fan favorites, Wrexham AFC at Snapdragon Stadium on July 25th.

The last time these two clubs faced off in a competitive match was in the FA Cup in 1995, where Manchester United won 5-2 at Old Trafford.

Summer Tour

This is the first match of Manchester United’s 2023 Summer Tour to be announced after United revealed that Erik ten Hag and his squad will travel to the US in preparation for the 2023/24 season.

A youth-focused team drawn from United’s traveling Tour squad supplemented by Academy prospects will take on Wrexham AFC on 25th July, as part of a week-long training camp in San Diego.

Welcome to Wrexham

For Wrexham, this will be the first time in the club’s history that they will travel to the United States, an exciting next step for the club that was brought to prominence in the United States following the purchase of the club by Rob McElhenney and Ryan Reynolds in 2020, and the unveiling of their television series documenting the team and community called Welcome to Wrexham.

This match couldn’t possibly have two more popular teams playing, given all of the buzz that Wrexham has enjoyed since Ryan Reynolds bought the team and they won a title.

Expect the fan enthusiasm at the game to be through the roof!

A great time to be a soccer fan in San Diego!

The energy around soccer in San Diego is on fire right now – Loyal, Wave, MLS Team, CONCACAF Gold Cup, Loyal playing Borussia Dortmund, and now this – it’s a great time to be a soccer fan in San Diego!

More information about the match and tickets can be found here.

See you there!
