Manchester United has confirmed a pre-season friendly with Real Madrid, scheduled to take place in Houston’s NRG Stadium.

The European giants will face off on July 26th, one day following a match between a United side consisting of younger players and Wrexham in San Diego.


Erik ten Hag’s team has two more tour matches, one against Arsenal at the MetLife Stadium in New Jersey on July 22nd and the other against Borussia Dortmund on July 30th.

The last time Manchester United played Real Madrid in the US was in 2014 at Michigan, where a record-breaking 109,318 fans attended, making it the largest crowd for a football match played in the country.


John Murtough, United’s football director, expressed the significance of the upcoming match, stating that it provides a unique opportunity for their US fans to witness one of the greatest fixtures in world football first-hand.

“We previously visited Houston in 2017 when we faced Manchester City in front of a massive crowd, and I am confident that this match will be equally well-received.


Erik and his team are excited to spend time in the US and use this opportunity to prepare for the upcoming season by competing against high-quality opponents like Real Madrid. Our players are eager to challenge themselves against another top European side as they gear up for the 2023/24 campaign.”

Starting from 10:00 CT / 16:00 BST on May 17th, tickets for the Real Madrid versus Manchester United match will be available on pre-sale to fans who have pre-registered, as well as United season ticket holders, official members, and executive club members.


The tickets will then be available for general sale starting from 10:00 CT / 16:00 BST on May 19th.
