Have you been pictured at a match this season?

Wednesday 13 October 2021 11:39

Having our unrivalled Manchester United fans back at matches this season has been one of the undoubted highlights of the season so far.

It was amazing that football was able to continue throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, at a time when the world needed it most, but it just wasn’t the same without fans in attendance and we're buzzing that capacity crowds are back.  

Throughout the campaign so far, your backing has been incredible and we have loved seeing you all on matchday. Here in the media team, we make it our mission to photograph as many of you as possible around the stadium: whether it’s on Sir Matt Busby Way, the forecourt, concourse or in the stands.

So far this term, we have captured hundreds of you proudly supporting Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s mighty Reds and we want to share these images with you. 

Make sure you browse through the galleries below because you might just have been snapped by our official photographers...


Read what has been said about your unrivalled support this season...

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer: “Magic, absolutely magic. It does mean a lot for the players. This atmosphere gives you the extra edge and energy. You can’t replicate that from a team-talk or the team spirit it gives you. The last 18 months have been strange - the only interaction [for fans] has been through media and watching games on TV. You haven’t had that feeling of connection. To be re-united with the fans again is important. This is Man United. This is the real Man United.”

John Murtough, Football Director: “A great example was the Leeds game, when Rafa Varane walked out onto the pitch. He’s about six foot four anyway, but I think he felt a foot taller walking back up that tunnel after you had all given him that welcome. One thing that the players quote to me, especially the new players, is what it's like at away games as well – the support they have from the fans. So please don't underestimate the power and the energy that gives the team.”

Cristiano Ronaldo: “Sometimes the players, we try to do our job, to play good and score goals but sometimes it is not possible. The fans have this role as well when the team is in a difficult moment, they need to push us. This is why I say and ask them if they can do that. They give us motivation to keep going and to keep running and keep believing.”

Raphael Varane: “Yeah, very good. It was a good atmosphere, and they gave us good help during the game. When it’s hard, we need fans and we have very good support from our fans.”

Paul Pogba: “It is always good to hear them, they always give us a push. To have them in the stand, football is always beautiful with those people who support the team away and at home. it is always good to have them and to feel them in the stadium.”

Thanks again for your loyal support.
