Club statement after government's COVID update

Monday 05 July 2021 18:24

Manchester United welcomes this evening’s statement (5 July) from the UK government about the proposed easing of COVID-19 restrictions across the country from 19 July.

This is positive news for the club and our fans as we prepare to welcome them back for next season.

We will now work through the detail of this announcement and any subsequent guidance from the football authorities to amend our plans, stadium regulations and supporter guidance ahead of our pre-season friendlies and the Premier League season.

As part of that, our policies in relation to face masks, social distancing, capacities and ticketing will be reviewed and communicated to our fans to make attending our games as safe as possible, in line with the national guidance.

Supporters should continue to review for the latest advice on attending our games.


Fans can now buy tickets for the home fixtures against Brentford on 28 July and Everton on 7 August. All of the matches, including Derby County away on 18 July and QPR away on 24 July, will be shown live on MUTV.
