LOS ANGELES, July 16th, 2017 – On the back of the 5-2 victory versus LA Galaxy in the first game of Manchester United’s pre-season tour, adidas Soccer and Manchester United brought together entertainment stars from movies, music and American sports in an exclusive event at The Highlight Room - Hollywood’s newest rooftop party venue.

The event was attended by the United squad, adidas Soccer’s Tango Squad and a host of U.S. athletes and influencers, including Jamie Foxx, Emily Ratajkowski and music artist Desiigner.

In a true showing of adidas Soccer’s latest mantra – from stadium to street - guests were treated to a live performance from LA-based hip hop artist YG and DJ sets by ESTA and A$AP Lou.

Manchester United’s midfielder, Jesse Lingard, commented: “Only adidas can bring together such a star studded event. Clearly the focus for us is on football [soccer] with a busy schedule of games coming up but the event has given us a great opportunity to soak up being in LA and meet so many famous faces.”

United will continue their pre-season tour on July 20th when they face Major League Soccer club Real Salt Lake, before taking on Manchester City, Real Madrid and Barcelona.
