CORK City FC will welcome Manchester United to Turner's Cross for a friendly fixture in just under a fortnight.
A Manchester United XI will visit Cork on Wednesday, July 25 to take on Cork City in a friendly fixture at Turner's Cross.
The match takes place the day after City face Championship side Watford at the same venue.
The game, with a kick-off time of 7.45pm, is being kindly sponsored by Cork Airport.
Commenting on the fixture, Cork City manager Tommy Dunne ( pictured) told CorkCityFC.net: "We are delighted to be bringing one of the most prestigious clubs in the world to Turner's Cross. When an opportunity to bring Manchester United to Cork arises, then you have to jump at it. From the club's point of view, the announcement of these friendly games is a very welcome boost in the wake of the loss of a home league fixture following Monaghan's withdrawal from the league. With such exciting developments at Watford and the visit of Blackburn Rovers to look forward to in August, it promises to be an exciting summer of football here on Leeside."
Tickets for the game are priced at €15 for adults and €10 for Sen io r Citizens/ Juveniles (Under 16's). There will be a special, discounted rate available to FORAS members and Cork City Season Ticket holders of €10 for Adults and €5 for Senior Citizens/Juveniles ( Under 16's).
Discounted tickets will only be available when purchased directly from Cork City FC and this offer will expire until Friday, July 13.
Tickets will be available online from Ticketmaster and are also available from the Cork City club office in Bishopstown and will also be available at Turner's Cross on Sunday, as Cork City take on Bohemians with a 6 pm kick-off.
