Red Sunday: Two live games for United fans

Friday 15 March 2024 11:00

Manchester United fans can experience the thrill of two huge games on the club's official TV channel, app and website this Sunday (17 March), across more than six hours of live broadcasting.

In addition to exclusive build-up, post-match analysis and radio commentary of our Emirates FA Cup quarter-final against arch-rivals Liverpool at Old Trafford, we'll also be streaming live video of our women's team hosting Bristol City in the WSL at Leigh Sports Village.

Our comprehensive coverage begins at 11:45 GMT, 15 minutes before the midday kick-off, as Marc Skinner's side seek a winning return to home turf after four consecutive away fixtures. Former England and United goalkeeper Siobhan Chamberlain will be on hand to provide her expert analysis.

When our women last played at LSV back in early February, Brighton & Hove Albion were defeated 2-0 and, before that, Aston Villa were turned over 2-1. Nikita Parris scored all of our goals across both games and went on to win the WSL Fans' Player of the Month accolade, as well as the club's equivalent award.

Preview: United Women v Bristol City


All you need to know about the Reds' next game in the WSL, which will be shown live on MUTV in the UK.

After showing post-match reaction to the WSL game at Leigh, our epic afternoon of live broadcasting will continue from Old Trafford at 14:15 GMT, when the pre-match atmosphere for the colossal cup clash with Liverpool will be approaching electric levels.

Matchgoing fans are being encouraged to take their seats early on Sunday, so there could be a noisy backdrop for our pitchside presenter Mark Sullivan, as he delivers the team news at 14:30 GMT and dissects it with a pair of partisan United pundits, former striker Danny Webber and ex-defender Danny Simpson.

Treble-winning legend David May will then pick up the mic in the press box and give listeners his passionate take on the action, alongside commentator Liam Bradford, as we bring you live audio on every twist and turn.

There's the prospect of extra-time and penalties of course, if the sides can't be separated after 90 minutes. Of course, this was the outcome when we last met, at Anfield in December, when it finished 0-0 in the league. So our many hours of live broadcasting could be extended into the early evening, well beyond the currently scheduled off-air time of 18:15 GMT.

However long it takes to decide Sunday's FA Cup tie, our live radio commentary will be immediately followed by post-match analysis and opinion, as we hear from Erik ten Hag and his players in our Match Day Review programme - available worldwide on MUTV, and the United App.

All durations of our match highlights - two minutes, 20 minutes and full replay - will be available to watch on demand from midday GMT on Monday.
