Man United to face Crystal Palace as summer plans confirmed

Palace will face United at the famous Melbourne Cricket Ground on July 19, the club have confirmed.

The Eagles were first set to visit Australia in 2020 alongside London rivals West Ham, but were forced to postpone the trip due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Palace had also hoped to tour down under last summer but again had to cancel.

“We are absolutely delighted to be visiting Australia for the first time in the club’s history, even more so following our two planned trips in recent pre-seasons being postponed due to Covid,” said chairman Steve Parish.

“It will be fantastic to finally witness Crystal Palace play in Australia, and to do so at the iconic MCG in front of our Australian fans and strong travelling support is something the entire squad and staff, led by Patrick Vieira, are excited about.”

Manchester United – who are set to be under a new permanent manager for the tour – will also face four-time A-League champions Melbourne Victory four days before they play Crystal Palace.
