Manchester United will tour South Africa in the close season this summer, the club announced on Thursday.
The tour which will take place from July 19 to 26 will be detailed by United manager Sir Alex Ferguson at a press conference next month.
The travelling party is to be confirmed but it is expected that the full squad, including England national players, will be available.
When asked about the upcoming Ferguson commented: "We really enjoyed our visit in 2006. The atmosphere in the stadium and the enthusiasm from the fans helped make for a great event. All the facilities were first class and I am looking forward to returning."
South Africa is to host the next World Cup finals in 2010.
