United Women return to Old Trafford for West Ham clash

Monday 23 January 2023 10:00

Manchester United will face West Ham United at Old Trafford in the Barclays Women’s Super League later this season.

The WSL fixture is scheduled for 12:30 GMT on Saturday 25 March and will be the first women’s match at Old Trafford in 2023, following league fixtures against Everton and Aston Villa, and the sold-out opening game of the UEFA Women’s European Championships, in 2022. 

More than 100,000 fans were in attendance across those three games last year and another big crowd will be expected in March, as fans continue to break attendance records at Leigh Sports Village.
United’s 6-0 victory over Liverpool last Sunday was watched by 7,666 supporters - the highest attendance at Leigh Sports Village in the WSL.

Marc Skinner’s team, who have a 100 per cent winning record at Old Trafford, have made a great start to this campaign and currently sit top of the table after Rachel Williams’s 87th-minute winner secured all three points away against Reading yesterday. 
Skinner said: “Our entire group of players and staff are extremely excited to perform in front of our incredible fans at Old Trafford, for the second time this season. As the women’s game continues to grow, we are delighted that this great football club remains at the heart of it and offer another wonderful opportunity for fans – both old and new – to experience a Manchester United Women’s game on the biggest stage.”

Polly Bancroft, head of women’s football, added: “This will be another great occasion for Manchester United Women, and a wonderful opportunity for our amazing fans to set another Old Trafford attendance record, for the third time in succession. We cannot wait to see everyone cheering us on at the Theatre of Dreams, in another fine spectacle for the women's game.”
