United v Reading: Your digital matchday programme is here!

Thursday 02 September 2021 13:24

There’s plenty to look forward to this Friday (3 September) evening, with a new-look Manchester United Women taking on Reading in the opening fixture of the 2021/22 Women’s Super League season.

The visit of the Royals will also see fans back inside the Reds’ Leigh Sports Village home to cheer the team on for the first time since January last year.

Under the stewardship of new head coach Marc Skinner, the Reds are likely to have some exciting fresh faces in the line-up alongside the more established players, and you can be part of what’s expected to be a lively atmosphere in front of the Sky Sports cameras – the broadcaster’s first-ever live WSL game – for just £6 (£3 concessions). 

Indeed, Skinner’s 21-player squad for the new campaign contains five summer arrivals, all of whom feature in the official match programme, which will be on sale inside the ground for the 19:45 BST kick-off.
