United warm up at Leigh.

Update on Under-23s' clash with Arsenal

Friday 16 October 2020 11:18

Manchester United's Under-23s have a Premier League 2 fixture against Arsenal on Saturday, kicking off at 14:00 BST.

Unfortunately, we are sorry to report that the game cannot be shown live on MUTV, as had been planned, as part of our commitment to extensive and comprehensive coverage of youth football.


Lead coach Neil Wood is taking his young side down south.

Under COVID-19 Academy protocols, the home club regulate media access and have determined that the game cannot be filmed.

We must respect this decision so the match at Borehamwood's Meadow Park will not be shown as Neil Wood's young side make their first appearance since the 2-2 draw at Blackburn Rovers at the start of the month.

However, we expect to screen the home game with Everton's Under-23s at Leigh Sports Village live in its entirety on MUTV next Friday (23 October).

Kick-off in the game against the Merseysiders is 19:00 BST.

Our 2020/21 home, away and third kits are available to buy now from United Direct.
