Continental Cup: Everton v United postponed

Wednesday 04 November 2020 11:15

Manchester United can confirm that tonight's FA Women’s Continental Tyres Cup fixture has been called off by Everton, with the permission of The Football Association, due to concerns around the stadium at Walton Hall Park.

While safety must come first, Manchester United is disappointed with both the process and the timing involved in this decision.

Further details on the future of the fixture will be communicated in due course.

Casey Stoney: “I must make it clear that we as a club wanted this game to be played and were accommodating in the options that were put forward.

“My players and staff have worked so hard in our preparation for this upcoming busy fixture period and it is therefore extremely frustrating to have it called off less than 24 hours before kick-off.”
