While they rightfully enjoyed their FA Cup triumph back in May, Manchester United still endured a largely torrid campaign.

The Red Devils finished eighth in the Premier League - their lowest ever finish - and were dumped out of the Champions League at the group stage. Despite speculation over his future at Old Trafford, Erik ten Hag has held on to his job.

In fact, the Dutchman has actually been handed a contract extension and will be desperate to redeem himself next season. With a few new additions and a good pre-season, Man Utd supporters will feel they can start the rebuilding process in 2024/25.

Here are the Red Devils' pre-season plans as things stand.

Where are Man Utd going for 2024/25 pre-season?

Man Utd have already announced the bulk of their pre-season plans and it all kicks off with a trip to Norway to face Rosenborg on 15 July. With the Copa America and Euro 2024 final taking place the day prior, some of the club's stars will be unavailable for the trip.

The Red Devils then face a trip to Scotland before heading off to the United States for three matches. Real Betis are one of their opponents in North America, with battles against familiar Premier League foes also set up.

Of course, Man Utd will now also be involved in the Community Shield following their success in the FA Cup.

Man Utd's 2024/25 pre-season confirmed schedule

After their trip to Norway to face Rosenborg in mid-July, Man Utd travel to Edinburgh to face Rangers at Murrayfield Stadium on 20 July. The Red Devils haven't clashed with the Scottish giants since a Champions League encounter in 2010.

It's off to the United States for Man Utd after their battle with the Glasgow club and they start their American tour with a clash against old foes Arsenal on 28 July in California. The two clubs faced off in 2023/24 pre-season, a game Ten Hag's side won 2-0.

Spanish side Real Betis are next up for the Red Devils, another clash taking place in California just four days after the meeting with Arsenal. United will finish up their time in the United States by facing rivals Liverpool in another friendly, with the game taking place in Columbia, South Carolina.

Just a week after their meeting with Liverpool across the pond, Man Utd will face local rivals Manchester City in the Community Shield, which is technically a pre-season friendly. Having beaten them in last season's FA Cup final, they will be looking to get one over on Pep Guardiola's side early doors.
