Manchester United will be making a stop in Utah this summer, as the star-studded English soccer club tunes up for its 2017-18 season.

The team announced its preseason U.S. tour on Monday, without providing many details. Jose Mourinho's squad will play in five cities, including Salt Lake City, Santa Clara, Calif., Los Angeles, and Washington, D.C. But United has yet to release the dates, venues and opponents for its two-week American tour.

United has made 14 visits to the United States since 1950, playing a mix of U.S., Mexican and European sides.

"Visiting North America will give the team the best possible preparation for the new season, using top-class training facilities and playing in some great stadiums," United's executive vice chairman Ed Woodward said in a news release.

The club said it would announce further details of its visit in the coming days.
