Manchester United and Manchester City will meet in a pre-season friendly in America this coming July, as part of the annual International Champions Cup.

Both teams should have faced off in the tournament last year in Beijing, but the match was subsequently called off due to bad weather, which caused the pitch to become waterlogged.

The upcoming game on July 20, will therefore be the first Manchester Derby to be held outside the UK at a venue that is yet to be confirmed.

In other fixtures as part of the competition, City will face Spurs in Nashville as well as Real Madrid in the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum.

United will also play Real Madrid in Santa Clara, before taking on Barcelonaon on July 26th.

The event will also feature an El Clasico clash between Real Madrid and Barcelona in the Hard Rock Stadium, Miami.

The International Champions Cup games in Singapore will host Chelsea's ties against Bayern Munich on 25 July and Inter Milan on 29 July.
