Capacity reduced for Manchester United’s Carabao Cup tie against Burnley

Manchester United’s home capacity will be reduced for next week’s Carabao Cup tie against Burnley.

This is due to ambulance strikes, meaning the required amount of personnel is unavailable. United have been advised by safety authorities to reduce their capacity.

The club will be allowed 62,000 fans, however, West Stand tier 2 and North Stand tier 3 will be closed.

The unavailability of other public services, such as transport, and staffing over the festive period has meant the match cannot be rescheduled and will still take place on Wednesday, December 21, with kick-off at 8 pm.

Club will prioritise relocation of Season Ticker holders

United have written to fans in the affected areas to offer a full refund, as the match is sold out. The club will also be working over the coming days to relocate those impacted and will prioritise both Full and Cup Season Ticket holders.

The Red Devils will be facing the Championship leaders for a place in the last eight of the competition.

  1. As a season ticket holder, I would expect to see every game of the season, to be told less than a week to the game is very disappointing. Fortunately I have two cup season tickets in a better section, so I get to used them and get a refund for the seat in the gods that I can’t sell.
