Confirmed: When United Women will play at Old Trafford

Friday 07 October 2022 15:00

The date and time of Manchester United’s WSL match against Aston Villa at Old Trafford has now been confirmed.

The Reds will take on the Villans at the Theatre of Dreams at 12:30 GMT on Saturday 3 December and it will be broadcast live on Sky Sports in the UK. 

Our clash with Villa was originally pencilled in for the Sunday of that weekend but has been moved forward just under 24 hours following the announcement of the latest TV picks. 

Supporters can purchase tickets and hospitality packages for the game here.

The match will be United Women’s third at Old Trafford, after WSL fixtures against West Ham and Everton over the previous two seasons. 

Our 3-1 win over Everton in March was the team’s first-ever game at the Theatre of Dreams in front of supporters, after the meeting with Hammers was played behind closed doors due to Covid-19.

December’s visit of Villa will also be the third women’s game at the stadium in 2022, following that meeting with the Toffees and the opening game of this summer’s European Championship, in which England beat Austria 1-0. 
The fixture is one of several of our upcoming matches to have its date and time updated following the latest round of broadcast picks. 

Our trip to the Emirates Stadium to take on Arsenal will now take place on Saturday 19 November at 17:30 GMT, and it will be shown live on Sky Sports. 

The Manchester derby at the Etihad Stadium will stay on Sunday 11 December, but is now a 12:30 GMT start. That game will be available to watch live on the BBC.

Last week, our home match against champions Chelsea was also picked for Sky Sports coverage, and is now set to begin at 18:45 GMT on Sunday 6 November at Leigh Sports Village.
