Toronto all set for United welcome

United are gearing up for their first pre-season test against Celtic in Toronto in the early hours of Saturday.

The match kicks off at 19:00 local time and midnight from Friday into Saturday UK time.

It will be be shown live on MUTV, with an hour-long preview show called Countdown to kick off - USA 2010 being aired at 20:00 and again at 22:30.

The match programme starts at 23:30 and ends at 02:30. All times are UK time.

There will, as ever, be internet links to video streams. Find them
here from 21:00 on Friday.

Ticket sales are reportedly not that high, so expect to see gaps around the stadium.

As for the players, humidity has made life pretty uncomfortable for United and the heat won't help either.

During the day, temperatures in the Canadian city will climb up to 29C/84F and it will be very sunny, though it will cool down a little by kick off.

The relatively high temperature might make for a slow tempo match, especially given the fact that it is only the start of pre season.
