Manchester United is coming back to the United States this summer in what could be an unforgettable tour for American (and Canadian) soccer fans.

The Sports Business Journal is reporting that Manchester United is working on a summer tour of North American that would include visits to Boston, Philadelphia, Toronto and Houston for the 2010 MLS All-Star Game.

The 2010 MLS All-Star Game is scheduled for July 27th at Reliant Stadium in Houston.

The tour would be Manchester United's first tour of the United States since 2004. United played matches in the United States in 2003 and 2004.

    Thanks man….we are loyal RSL fans….:)

    Seattle is amazing….the wife’s brothers live up their….it’s like being in a stadium in England and I’ve been in a few of those…:) Fans are very passionate and loud…RSL fans are passionate too, but much more quiet…

    Yeah I wonder about some of the stadiums too…Rio Tinto (RSL)is 22,500 wit the usual open end on oen end for concerts so room to add on if they had too….like you said for now th eright size with crowds of 16-18,000 at most places….

    Boston Globe mentioned that there’s talk about “Euro” teams playing at Fenway Park this summer.

    there is still massive depth in the united team, so while rio, rooney, evra and others may not be featured, there’s nothing like ryan giggs, scholes, fletcher, etc. add in macheda, valencia and evans, and it will be a great spectacle. too bad seattle is not in the mix.

    @Shark – Wow. What a comeback. Congrats on being a baby killer. God bless the souls of all of the innocent people you murdered.

    We would welcome my 2nd favorite Red team here in Toronto with open arms.

    We support our home town team (TorontoFC) through rain, sleet, or snow. It’s not always that balmy here in the great white north.

    Man U surley would have an unbeliveable time at the best soccer field (BMO), fans, and supporters group (Red Patch Boys)in North America.

    However with 21,000+ seats, I think it most likely be staged at our baseball concrete monolith (Skydome).

    The Man U support here in Ontario and Canada is huge and would surely sell out a stadium 3X the size.

    Sure hope Rooney comes…
