United to begin pre-season in Thailand



Manchester United announced on Thursday that they will begin their 2013 pre-season tour in Thailand.

The current Premier League leaders will tackle the Singha All Star XI at Bangkok's Rajamangala Stadium on July 13.

United have made four previous visits to the country but have not played there for 12 years.

The club have already announced that their preparations for the 2013-14 campaign will involve matches in Sydney, Tokyo, Osaka and Hong Kong.

"Our visit to Thailand in July plays an important role in the team's pre-season preparations for the season ahead, as well as enables the Club to engage with some of its global fans and commercial partners," said Manchester United chief executive David Gill.

"There are over 19.5 million Manchester United followers in Thailand and the Club has been lucky enough to visit on a number of occasions."
