Off the back of a successful trip by fellow EPL giants Chelsea this year – where 55,000 attended their showdown with Perth Glory despite torrential rains, Manchester United are headed to Perth in 2019 for a double-header at Optus Stadium.

Manchester United will line up for two games:

  • Perth Glory – Saturday, July 13
  • Leeds – Wednesday, July 17

Whether you are a Man-U fan or not – Western Australia (and Australian) football fans will be excited to see one of the world’s best in action.

The most exciting part though of the Red Devils coming to town is that they have given an assurance they will be fielding a near full-strength team, with the EPL season starting a month later.

Biggest Sporting Event In Perth

With a reported following of 75 million and global reach of 659 million – this could be the biggest sporting event Perth will ever host.

This is yet another win for the state government and Tourism WA with Optus Stadium already set to host Game 2 of the NRL State of Origin, which is expected to be a sell out.

Manchester United’s tour will be the first time they have played in Australia since August 2013, when they took on the A-League All-Stars in front of a capacity crowd at ANZ Stadium – going on to wi that match 5-1.

Get ready for a sea of red to take over Perth in July of 2019!
