Away fans won't move

Manchester United is disappointed to announce that, due to a delay in satisfying the requirements of the evaluation of the movement of away fans from the south-east quadrant to the third tier of the Sir Alex Ferguson stand, the proposed relocation cannot happen in time for the 2012/13 season.

The club has been asked for some further detailed analysis following a trial when Aston Villa came to Old Trafford in April, but unfortunately there is not the time for the club to do that work, conduct the season ticket renewal process, submit the proposals for approval and potentially implement the move before the start of next season.

Therefore, the club wish to reiterate that away fans will remain in the south-east quadrant in 2012/13. This also puts a hold on the proposed introduction of a singing section at Old Trafford.
