Supporters arrange CKSA friendly

A United supporters team will take on their CKSA Moscow counterparts ahead of next week's Champions League clash between the two clubs.

United met Spartak Moscow, CSKA's cross-city rivals, in Moscow ahead of the 2008 final between United and Chelsea in a game organised by the British Council and Visit Britain.

The hosts emerged victorious on home soil, but United are aiming to overcome Russian opposition and settle the score at The Cliff training facility on Tuesday, 3 November.

Again, the British Council, Visit Britain and Stretford End Flags are involved in this Fans United event, in order to develop stronger links between football fans across Europe.

The match will kick-off at 2pm, and will feature guest appearances by both David May and Clayton Blackmore and selected United dignatories will be in attendance. Spectators are welcome to this event.

The Manchester United Supporters team is aiming to extend similar invitations to other visiting fans ahead of future Champions League encounters.
