Manchester United return to Southern California in July to play the LA Galaxy in Pasadena

The Galaxy will face England’s most storied club, Manchester United, at 7:30 p.m. July 23 at Pasadena’s Rose Bowl for the first time ever in the club’s inaugural game of its U.S. tour, the club’s announced today.

“The club has been visiting Los Angeles since 1950 and this match provides a great opportunity for us to engage with our fans in this region,” said Manchester United Group Managing Director Richard Arnold. “The popularity of soccer in the US continues to strengthen and Major League Soccer and LA Galaxy have been fundamental to this.”

Tickets go on sale 10 a.m. April 22.

United last visited the LA area in 2003 (was it really that long ago?) when two goals by Uruguayan forward Diego Forlan and another by Ruud van Nistelrooy was enough to see off Club America 3-1 at the Coliseum.

The club will also play Roma July 26 in Denver, Inter Milan July 29 in Washington D.C. and Real Madrid Aug. 2 in Ann Arbor, Mich.

The Galaxy haven’t played at their old home since 2010 when they played Real Madrid.
