Manchester United vs Ryan Reynolds’ Wrexham: When is pre-season friendly?

Manchester United have confirmed they will play non-league Wrexham AFC as part of their summer tour to the United States.

Wrexham, a National League side, are closing in on promotion to the Football League and owned by Hollywood actors Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney, who completed a $2.5 million takeover in November 2020. The pair have also invested in Formula One team Alpine, buying a 24 per cent stake for £171.3 million in the British-based French F1 team. 

United boss Erik ten Hag is expected to give a chance to the club’s youth players, including their academy prospects.

What is the match? 

It is a pre-season friendly between Manchester United and Wrexham.

When does the match take place? 

The match is scheduled to take place on July 25 and kick off will be at 7.30pm local time. We’ll get to the local bit in a sec.

Where is the match taking place?

The match will take place at the Snapdragon Stadium, San Diego. So that will be… not entirely handy for supporters from both clubs.

One man who might enjoy the trip to the US is Wrexham’s Paul Mullin. He scored nine goals during the club’s FA Cup run last season, making him the competition’s top scorer. As a thank-you, the owners Reynolds and McElhenney treated him to an all-expenses paid knees-up in Las Vegas. 

Speaking at the FA Cup final, Mullin said the trip had been “very quiet, just had a few waters by the pool.” Sure. Sure. 

What TV channel is it on? 

The match will be shown on Manchester United’s MUTV channel.
