Local politician Kate Green, MP for Stretford and Urmston, joined the Manchester United Disabled Supporters’ Association (MUDSA) and United staff at Old Trafford in viewing the new accessibility facilities at Old Trafford.

Hosted by MUDSA, the celebratory event was held last week in the new purpose-built platform at the back of the Stretford End.

Speaking to MUTV, Kate Green hailed the new development and praised MUDSA’s efforts and the club’s investment, saying: “It is a fantastic facility and I'm really excited to be here and to see what's been created here because I know it's been a long-standing dream for the club and especially for the disabled supporters’ association. 

MUDSA celebrate new accessible platforms


Our Disabled Supporters' Association showcased the new Stretford End facilities during a launch day last week.

"I'm just blown away by it, it's so spacious," she continued.

"It's so elegant and stylish. It has got an amazing view of the ground. It's just stunning to look out there and you can see the whole pitch really clearly in front of you, and it's got a really warm welcoming vibe as well.

"As soon as I came in, I thought, ‘This is great, this is a really nice place for people to come’.

"It is really inclusive and it's great that disabled fans can sit anywhere in the stadium. If they want to come here, it's great here in the Stretford End - they're really welcoming - but other parts of the stadium are welcoming to disabled supporters too."

Green summed up her feelings of pride in MUDSA, who played an integral role in the redesign and construction of the new accessibility facilities by offering advice and guidance throughout the project.

"I'm always really proud to be the MP for Manchester United but I've got to say today I'm especially proud to be the MP for MUDSA, the disabled supporters’ association," she said.
