The first ever Manchester derby outside of England will take place as part of both clubs’ pre-season tour of the United States this summer. This was announced in March, but what wasn’t revealed exactly where it would take place.
After unconfirmed speculation on where the big game will be held, it is now confirmed that Manchester City vs. Manchester United will take place on July 20 at the NRG Stadium in Houston, Texas.
The stadium seats 71,795 fans and is sure to be a sell out for what will be one of the biggest matches of the summer. Of interest, this stadium has an artificial pitch rather than standard grass.
Two clubs. One city.
