Leeds United will head to Australia next summer as part of their preparations for the 2019-2020 campaign.

There has only been one game announced thus far, but it is a pretty big one. Indeed, Leeds will take on bitter rivals Manchester United in Perth on July 17.

It will be the first time that the two teams have met since September 2011, with the Red Devils recording a 3-0 win in their League Cup affair.

Not since February 2004 have the pair met in the Premier League, but they will be able to renew their rivalry next season if Leeds can secure a return to the top flight.

The two teams will definitely lock horns ahead of the 2019-2020 campaign, however, and the Leeds fans have been reacting to the news on social media.

Playmaker FC’s Matchday with Max caught up with Jamaica’s women’s team. See what happened when he met the history makers in the video below…

Many are looking forward to the pre-season match, and the majority also pointed out that there would be nothing ‘friendly’ about the clash.
