The next seven days will see the first team, United Women and the Under-18s all in action, along with a notable Manchester United Foundation landmark and a host of birthdays.

The Reds host Tottenham Hotspur at Old Trafford on Saturday in another vital clash in the pursuit of a top-four place, while United Women visit Reading in the WSL.

It is also a huge week for United Under-18s, as Travis Binnion’s side take on Wolverhampton Wanderers in the semi-final of the FA Youth Cup on Wednesday, before travelling to Liverpool for an Under-18s Premier League fixture on Saturday.

In addition, International Women’s Day and several birthdays and anniversaries will be celebrated across the week.

Here is how the next seven days look for United…

Tuesday marks International Women’s Day, and our United Women players and all female staff within the club will be celebrated on this day.

It will be two years since the Reds defeated Manchester City 2-0 at Old Trafford in the Premier League, with Anthony Martial and Scott McTominay among the goals in a memorable occasion just before the Covid-19 pandemic took hold of the country.


The Under-18s will play the FA Youth Cup semi-final against Wolves on Wednesday evening. The match is scheduled to kick off at 19:00 GMT at Old Trafford. Tickets are now sold out, but you can follow the action across our official platforms, including live coverage on MUTV.

On this day in 1966, United recorded an impressive 5-1 away victory over Benfica in the European Cup quarter-final, with George Best dubbed El Beatle in the press afterwards.
