Tour operators said that move was made on the back of a request from United, who wanted to cut down on travelling time.
Van Gaal’s men are based in San Jose, around 47 miles away from the Memorial Stadium.
A source told Sportsmail around 40,000 refunds had to be given to supporters who had bought tickets for the original venue.
The offer, for the International Champions Cup clash, was announced on the Earthquakes website.
The Avaya Stadium has only been home to the San Jose Earthquakes since March this year
