Borussia Dortmund is going on another trip to the USA in the summer. From the end of July, the Westphalians will be visiting several cities in the West and Midwest. A game against the English record champions Manchester United on July 30 in Las Vegas has already been agreed. The 61,000-seat Allegiant Stadium, home of the NFL’s Las Vegas Raiders, will be the setting.
In North America, “the market is becoming more and more important in the run-up to the 2026 World Cup and the enthusiasm for football is growing,” said BVB Managing Director Carsten Cramer.
Sports director Sebastian Kehl announced a “perfect mix of training and games as well as encounters with the local people”.
The return to the USA after a four-year break due to the pandemic is being funded by the DFL. After 1954, 2018 and 2019, it will be the fourth trip across the Atlantic for BVB.
