    Manchester United arrives in Seattle to kick off Tour 2015

    Tour 2015 kicked off on Monday as Manchester United arrived in Seattle, Washington to begin a two week pre-season tour of the United States and participate in the 2015 International Champion’s Cup.  The club’s charter plane touched down at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport at approximately 4:00 PM local time.

    The lads got the opportunity to stretch their legs from the 12-hour flight before boarding their brand new Tour 2015 bus for the short drive to their Bellevue-area hotel, where some fans were already waiting for them.




    Once checked in, the squad boarded the bus again and headed out to the Virginia Mason Athletic Center, the headquarters and practice facility for the National Football League’s Seattle Seahawks and United’s home away from home for the next few weeks.

    The lads settled in to their sprawling locker room, and even got to try on some of the leftover Seahawk equipment.  After that, it was out to the practice fields for a light training and stretching session before heading back to the hotel for some rest after a long flight.
