United's UEFA Youth League schedule

Tuesday 12 September 2023 14:49

Manchester United's UEFA Youth League itinerary has been confirmed, ahead of our return to the competition.

The prestigious Under-19s tournament mirrors the senior Champions League group stages, hence Travis Binnion's side are in Group A, alongside Bayern Munich, FC Copenhagen and Galatasaray.

We will be playing our home fixtures at Leigh Sports Village and fans are encouraged to support the youngsters as they take on some of the continent's top talent.

Dutch side AZ Alkmaar are the current holders.

The eight group winners qualify directly for the round of 16 stage, with the runners-up going into the play-offs, meeting teams from the domestic champions path.

This is the last year of the present format of the competition, as is the case with the Champions League.

Players born on or after 1 January 2005 are eligible to take part but up to five born a year earlier can be named in an initial 40-man squad if they meet certain criteria about length of interrupted time spent at the club.
