Confirmed: United Women's FA Cup opponents


Manchester United Women will play Brighton & Hove Albion in the quarter-finals of the Adobe Women's FA Cup.

Next month’s meeting will be our third with Brighton this season, having already met with the fellow top-flight outfit twice in the Women’s Super League in 2023/24.

Earlier in February, the Reds triumphed 2-0 at Leigh Sports Village, courtesy of a brace from top scorer Nikita Parris.

Back in November, there was late drama at the Broadfield Stadium – where the quarter-final will be played – as a 98th-minute equaliser from Rachel Williams ensured we claimed a point from an entertaining 2-2 draw.

Brighton, currently under the interim charge of Mikey Harris, will be our first WSL opponents of this season’s FA Cup, following the victories over tier-three Newcastle United and tier-two Southampton in rounds four and five respectively.

Our upcoming hosts have beaten Luton Town and Wolves, both on the road, to reach this point in the competition.

It will be the second successive term that Marc Skinner’s Reds will go head-to-head with the south-coast side in the FA Cup, following last year’s thrilling 3-2 win at the semi-final stage.
