Borussia Dortmund, with USMNT star Gio Reyna, have announced that they will spend their preseason in the U.S. this year. The first match arranged is a clash with English record-holding champions Manchester United on 30th July in Las Vegas. The tour titled “Back in Black & Yellow” will be the club”s first tour in four-years due to the pandemic.
The first of a series of matches to be announced today is a clash with English record-holding champions Manchester United, featuring the in-form Marcus Rashford, ex-Dortmund player Jadon Sancho and World Cup winner Lisandro Martinez. The match will be played on 30th July at the Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas and kick-off is at 6pm local time.
BVB Managing Director Carsten Cramer said:
“I think back with great pleasure to the summer of 2016 when we played Manchester United in front of a large crowd in Shanghai at the time. Now we look forward to returning to North America, where the market is becoming increasingly important in the run-up to the 2026 World Cup and the enthusiasm for football is growing. Not only does the Allegiant Stadium look great from the outside, but the enthusiastic fans in the USA, who we have missed since our last visit, will ensure that the game in Las Vegas will hold a special place in BVB’s history.”
Sporting Director Sebastian Kehl added: ”
If you take a look at which major clubs are spending part of their pre-season in the USA this summer, also playing high-profile friendlies as part of it, then it is only logical that we as Borussia Dortmund do not miss out on this either. In the coming weeks, our focus in planning the trip will be on creating the perfect mix between training and matches, as well as interaction with the local people.
Dortmund, who might well be touring as the Bundesliga champions, will also play Chelsea at Soldier’s Field in Chicago.
Dortmund have a strong fanbase in the U.S., mainly because this is where Christian Pulisic (2015-2019) and Giovanni Reyna (2019-present) have established themselves as top European professional players.
