Reds begin WSL season against champions Chelsea
Manchester United’s first two fixtures for the 2020/21 Women’s Super League season have been announced, and the Reds will begin by hosting the champions Chelsea.
Emma Hayes’s side will therefore begin the defence of their crown with a trip to United, with our first match of the season set to take place on Sunday 6 September.

Our women's team continued to prepare for 2020/21 in sweltering conditions at the Aon Training Complex.
The Blues ultimately finished 11th last season, just one place above the drop. Casey Stoney’s side beat Birmingham 3-1 in 2019/20 in a Continental League Cup tie, meanwhile we lost 1-0 to Chelsea last term on two separate occasions.
United have been working hard ahead of the new campaign after reporting back to training last month.
September’s double header could also be a first chance to see new signings Ivana Fuso, Ona Batlle and Lucy Staniforth in action.
