United to play in Norway

Manchester United will play in Norway for the first time in 10 years this August as part of their 2012/13 pre-season tour.

The reigning Barclays Premier League champions, who will be looking to defend their title in the last game of the season next weekend, will face Valerenga on 5 August in Oslo's Ullevaal Stadium.

It will be the first time the club has played in Norway since 2002, and upon announcing the game, United chief executive David Gill said: "We have fantastic fans in Norway - the Scandinavian supporters' club is our biggest anywhere in the world with over 40,000 members. It's great to have the chance to play in front of them again."
