Manchester United Women to play at Old Trafford for the first time

Manchester United women will play at Old Trafford for the first time when they face West Ham in a WSL fixture on March 27.

The match has been moved from their regular home at Leigh Sports Village, where you’d also see a lot of our youth teams play, with the kick-off scheduled for 11.30am.

Casey Stoney’s side are enjoying a strong season in the top-flight and are in the process of pushing for a Champions League place.

Reflecting on the announcement, Stoney said (via Sky Sports): “Playing at Old Trafford will obviously be a special moment in the history of this team and it’s a fantastic opportunity to showcase the women’s game, which has seen huge growth over the last few years.

“We, of course, will miss our fans. They are such an important part of this club and we have felt their amazing support from afar throughout the season.

“We are all eager to get them back in the stands as soon as possible and hope that there will be many more opportunities to play at Old Trafford in the future.”
