It won’t only be fans in Melbourne who will get a chance to watch Erik ten Hag’s United Down Under this year, with Optus Stadium hosting the fixture against Steven Gerrard’s Villa four days later in Western Australia.

During United’s last trip to Australia almost three years ago, the Red Devils played in Perth, beating A-League Men club Perth Glory 2-0 at Optus Stadium before defeating rivals Leeds United 4-0.

Perth’s festival of football also includes a clash between Crystal Palace and Leeds United on July 22.

The announcement comes on the back of the launch of the Queensland Champions Cup, which features Villa, Leeds and ALM outfit Brisbane Roar in July.
