    I thought Man U were supposed to play in Cleveland. That is way closer to Niagara than San Francisco. However, I need a return to Sonoma so I think I will go.

      Hi Alan

      Van Gaal wanted to stay and play on the west coast, which is why three of the four games are there. Chicago I believe is home to AON, who are their big sponsor.
