Manchester United kicks off pre-season tour against Perth Glory

LIVE on 7TWO, 7mate and 7plus

Sports fans will witness football royalty in action when Manchester United takes on A-League powerhouse Perth Glory at Optus Stadium on Saturday night live and free on Seven.

The Red Devils arrived in Perth on Monday for their official pre-season tour, bringing a full-strength squad that includes international superstars Paul Pogba, Romelu Lukaku, David De Gea, Marcus Rashford and Jesse Lingard, and new signings Daniel James and Aaron Wan-Bissaka.

Glory stars Ivan Franjic, Tomislav Mrcela, Chris Ikonomidis and new signing Bruno Fornaroli will be desperate to claim the scalp of the English Premier League’s most iconic club, while Saturday night’s game is also their first chance for redemption since May’s heartbreaking A-League Grand Final loss. 

Next Wednesday, United concludes its 10-day Perth visit with a clash against long-time rival Leeds United, also live and free on Seven.

Mel McLaughlin and Mark Readings will host Seven’s coverage from Optus Stadium, while the commentary team includes former Socceroo Stan Lazaridis, David Basheer and David Davutovic.

Fans will be able to watch both games live and on full replay on 7plus, with highlights and interviews available at @7Sport on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook.
