Manchester United and Crystal Palace will clash at Melbourne Cricket Ground in July in line with the Premier League pre-season tours.

The game which will come four days after United face Melbourne Victory on July 15 will be played at the 100,000-capacity MCG.

“It has been two years since the club has been able to travel on an international pre-season tour so we can’t wait to get going and reconnect with our fans in Australasia,” said United chief operating officer Collette Roche.

“Our matches in Melbourne will be a wonderful opportunity for international fans to see their favourite players up-close in an exciting schedule of games.”

United is also expected to play Liverpool at Bangkok’s 51,000-capacity Rajamangala National Stadium on July 12.

Liverpool had in 2013 played against MCG with 95,000 fan streaming the event which organisation expect to be replicated when United face the side.

“It’s a great opportunity to showcase our club, Melbourne Victory, to the world and a chance for our members and fans to see a special organisation and a club with such a big history,” said Victory coach Tony Popovic.

United are expected to have a new manager to replace interim manager, Ralf Rangnick, by the end of the season when the game kicks off.

Ajax coach Erik ten Hag, Paris Saint-Germain boss Mauricio Pochettino and Spain’s Luis Enrique are reported to be in the line up.
