The scheduled five-game Unmissable Tour 2017, presented by Aon, includes matches against Real Madrid, Barcelona and Manchester City, as well as two MLS clubs, the Los Angeles Galaxy and Real Salt Like City.  

ManU’s array of marketing partners will get extensive eyeballs across the nation, with many supporting via multi-media marketing.

Club executives said the matches would be available via the MUTV app.

ManU is the third most valuable soccer franchise, and fifth most valuable sports franchise in the world, with a value estimated at more than $3.3 billion. Majority owners are the Glazer Family, which also holds majority ownership of the NFL’s Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

"Visiting North America will give the team the best possible preparation for the new season, using top class training facilities and playing in some great stadiums," Ed Woodward, Manchester United’s executive vice chairman, said in a statement.  

"We have witnessed first-hand the passion and support for the Club in the U.S. in recent years, so naturally it is something that everybody is very much looking forward to this summer."
