United announce Old Trafford friendly

Like United, Lens have qualified for next season’s UEFA Champions League group stages after finishing a point behind champions Paris Saint Germain last season, providing Erik ten Hag’s side with a high-level test ahead of the new campaign.

The match, to be played on Saturday 5 August, will be the only pre-season game at Old Trafford this summer, offering a fantastic opportunity for fans to see the Reds fine-tune our preparations for the 2023/24 season, just nine days before our Premier League opener against Wolverhampton Wanderers.

It will be the first meeting between United and Lens, although the clubs share a connection through United’s French World Cup-winning centre-back Raphaël Varane, who started his professional career at Lens.

The match completes United’s line-up of pre-season games, with fixtures against an array of European opposition in Oslo, Edinburgh, Dublin and a four-match tour of the US, with stops in New York, San Diego, Houston and Las Vegas.
