Friday 17 May 2024 11:15

Manchester United Women can today confirm that head coach Marc Skinner has signed a one-year contract extension with an option for a further year.

Marc joined United in the summer of 2021 and went on to lead the team to a record-breaking 2022/23 season: finishing second in the Women's Super League, securing Champions League qualification for the first time, and reaching a maiden Women's FA Cup final.

This season, Marc took the team to a second consecutive FA Cup final, securing our first major trophy by beating Tottenham Hotspur 4-0 at Wembley Stadium. 
Marc Skinner said: 

“It’s an honour to extend my stay at Manchester United. I’ve always felt at home here, with our excellent players, staff, and fans. Being able to secure the team’s first major trophy at Wembley was a real career highlight for me and another sign of our continued growth, on and off the field. Thanks to everyone who has supported me on this journey, and I look forward to creating many more winning memories together.”

Matt Johnson, interim head of women’s football, said:

“Everyone at Manchester United is delighted to see Marc continue as women’s team head coach and build on the success of the team’s historic FA Cup win. Congratulations to Marc on his contract extension and we all wish him and the team the best of luck going into the new season.”


Tickets are still available for Saturday's Old Trafford match against Chelsea – our final game of the WSL season. Kick-off is scheduled for 15:00 BST at the Theatre of Dreams.
