Old Trafford date for United Under-21s

Tuesday 15 August 2023 12:53

Manchester United Under-21s will play at Old Trafford for the first time in 2023/24 this Friday, 18 August.

The young Reds host Leeds United in a Premier League 2 fixture that will kick off at 19:00 BST, and it will also be shown live on MUTV.

Fans can buy tickets for the Theatre of Dreams, priced at just £5 for adults and £1 for under-16s.

Given the Reds' opening match of the new PL2 season - Monday's narrow 3-2 defeat to Crystal Palace - was played away, the clash with Leeds will be our Under-21s' first home fixture.

The likes of Joe Hugill, Noam Emeran and Marc Jurado - who all played for the first team in pre-season friendlies - all started against the Eagles and could feature at Old Trafford on Friday.

The new league format with 26 teams in one division has provided Travis Binnion's players with a chance to test themselves against new opponents, including Leeds, with the aim of maximising development.

The opportunity to play in front of supporters at Old Trafford also offers invaluable experience, as the young Reds look to progress and continue their journey towards senior football.

Fans can book seats for Friday's game now via manutd.com/tickets.

If you cannot make it to the game, it will also be shown live on MUTV.
