The San Jose Earthquakes announced today they will host Manchester United Sunday July 22 at Levi’s Stadium up the road in Santa Clara. Kickoff is scheduled for 2pm that afternoon. Once again the English club will tour North America as part of their warmup to the 2018-2019 Premiership team.
This will be the second time that the Quakes will play the Red Devils–the last meeting was at Avaya Stadium on July 21, 2015 with the visitors defeating the locals 3-1 before a sellout crowd. The perennial English contenders are no stranger to Santa Clara having played last year on July 23 against Real Madrid of Spain before a packed house and winning on penalty kicks 2-1. They also clashed against Spanish/Catalan power Barcelona three years ago on July 25 and winning 3-1.
Quakes Season Pass holders will get this match as Bonus Game B.
