Cork City FC have announce that a Manchester United XI will visit Cork on Wednesday, July 25th where they will take on Cork City in a friendly fixture.
The game, which will take place at Turner’s Cross and will kick-off at 7.45 pm, takes place the day after City face Championship side Watford at the same venue. The game is being kindly sponsored by Cork Airport.
Commenting on the fixture, Cork City manager Tommy Dunne told CorkCityFC.net: “We are delighted to be bringing one of the most prestigious clubs in the world to Turner’s Cross. When an opportunity to bring Manchester United to Cork arises, then you have to jump at it. From the club’s point of view, the announcement of these friendly games is a very welcome boost in the wake of the loss of a home league fixture following Monaghan’s withdrawal from the league. With such exciting developments at Watford and the visit of Blackburn Rovers to look forward to in August, it promises to be an exciting summer of football here on Leeside.”
Tickets for the game are priced at €15 for adults and €10 for Senior Citizens/Juveniles (Under 16’s). There will be a special, discounted rate available to FORAS members and Cork City Season Ticket holders of €10 for Adults and €5 for Senior Citizens/Juveniles (Under 16’s). Discounted tickets will only be available when purchased directly from Cork City FC and this offer will expire until Friday 13th of July.
Manchester United will also play a friendly match against Longford Town while in Ireland. They face Longford on July 23rd in Flancare Park. First up for Longford thought will be Millwall, who come to Flancare Park 18th July, with a 7.30pm kick-off.
