Which month are you most excited for in 2023/24?

Friday 23 June 2023 16:30

Manchester United are now just under 50 days from embarking on yet another exciting season of Premier League football.

Our 2023/24 campaign is set to begin on Monday 14 August, when a home clash against Wolverhampton Wanderers is scheduled to be our opening game.

The 20:00 BST kick-off will open up a second season in charge for Erik ten Hag, with excitement already building after his impressive start to life at the Old Trafford helm.

Combining domestic action with a return to Europe's elite club competition, the UEFA Champions League, United supporters have an action-packed ten months to look forward to.

But which of those months are you most excited about? Read our breakdown below before casting your vote...

When are the Reds due back at Carrington?


Our training base is quiet, for now, but that will all change when we hit July.


After beginning our campaign with that clash against Julen Lopetegui's Wolves in M16, Ten Hag's men will travel to the capital to face Tottenham Hotspur just five days later. Having been held to a thrilling 2-2 draw last season, after going 2-0 up, the Reds will be determined to grab all three points this time around. Our final action of the month comes once more at the Theatre of Dreams, as we host Nottingham Forest in a game that is provisionally scheduled for 26 August.


United begin the second month of the year with an away trip to face Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium, before we welcome Brighton and Hove Albion to Old Trafford. We also begin our 23/24 UEFA Champions League journey just days later - it will be established who the Reds will face in our opening contest when the group-stage draw is made on 31 August. September also marks the start of our attempt to retain the Carabao Cup, with the third round set for the week beginning 25 September. Premier League games against Burnley (A) and Crystal Palace (H) round off the month's action.


As the third month of the season swings around, there are two Champions League matchdays lined up for 3 & 4 and 24 & 25 October. The fourth round of the Carabao Cup will be played in the week commencing 30 October and there are three Premier League matches to contend with too. We host Brentford at home on 7 October and a short trip to South Yorkshire follows a fortnight later when we will face newly promoted Sheffield United. All eyes will be on M16 in the final weekend of the month when Manchester City are due to visit us.


Two more Champions League fixtures come along in November, with matchdays four and five set to take place in the second and fourth weeks respectively. The Reds also have three Premier League clashes on the itinerary, as we travel to both Fulham and Everton, either side of a home game against Luton Town. The Hatters are preparing for their first season in the top flight since 1991/92, following their Championship play-off success in May.

The Christmas period always brings plenty of thrills and spills with our festive calendar as packed as ever, with seven Premier League games to come across the month. First up it's a trip to St James' Park to face Newcastle United, before we host Chelsea and Bournemouth in back-to-back home encounters. Consecutive away clashes with Liverpool and West Ham United then follow, before a Boxing Day contest with Aston Villa at Old Trafford. Our final action of 2023 will see Ten Hag's face Nottingham Forest at The City Ground. Also in December, we will play our final UEFA Champions League group-stage clash and we will also hope to be involved in the Carabao Cup quarter-finals.


As 2024 springs into life, United's first action is a home clash with Tottenham, before travelling to Molineux for any away clash with Wolves. We also enter the Emirates FA Cup at the third-round stage which is set to take place on the weekend of the 6/7 January, as we bid to go one step further than last season's final defeat to crosstown rivals Manchester City. The fourth round is set for just three weeks later. Both legs of the Carabao Cup semi-finals are pencilled in for January too.


Ten Hag's men will kick off a busy February on all fronts with a home game against West Ham followed by away clash against Aston Villa set to follow just a week later. A first-ever Premier League trip to Kenilworth Road should be quite an occasion, given the stadium has only the capacity of 10,536. February's action in the Premier League is set to rounded off against Fulham. The Carabao Cup final for 2024 is booked at Wembley for February 25 and should United progress much like they did this season, our clash with the Cottagers is likely would be rearranged. It is also worth noting the FA Cup fifth round is set to take place in the following midweek. Should United progress in the UEFA Champions League, the first leg of our Last 16 tie would also take place in February.

Who do we play around our Champions League games?


We don't yet know United's group opponents, but we do know which league games will fall either side of each matchday.


March will see the Reds play three Premier League games with a trip to the Etihad to face Manchester City first on the agenda. A home clash with Everton comes a week later, before we host Sheffield United at the Theatre of Dreams for the first time in the Premier League since our 2-1 defeat back in January 2021. Our final game of the month is set to be an away trip to London to face Thomas Frank's Brentford outfit. The quarter-finals of the FA Cup are scheduled for the weekend of 16/17 March - with Ten Hag's side beating Fulham 3-1 in M16 at this stage during the 22/23 season.


As the campaign nears its conclusion, United will play five times in the Premier League in the penultimate month, with Chelsea (A) first up. It's a quick turnaround with Liverpool (H) pencilled in for a few days later, before we head to the south coast to face Bournemouth. Back-to-back home encounters with Newcastle and Burnley then follow. The quarter-finals of the UEFA Champions League will take place on 9/10 and 16/17 April 2024, before a potential FA Cup semi-final on the weekend of the 20/21 April.


The final month of the domestic season sees the Reds begin May with a trip to Selhurst Park to face Crystal Palace, before we play our final home league game of the 23/24 season against none other than long-term rivals Arsenal at Old Trafford. Our last fixture of the 23/24 Premier League campaign is a fixture against Brighton, which is set to take place on 19 May 2024 at the Amex Stadium. The FA Cup final will take place slightly earlier than last year, with the date set for Saturday 25 May.
