What’s happening at United this week?

Monday 25 July 2022 10:00

Another busy week lies ahead for the Reds first team and United Women, with friendlies and pre-season training taking centre stage.

As United’s pre-season preparations draw to a close, Erik Ten Hag’s side have two games in just two days this weekend. Both matches are available to watch in the United App, on MUTV and via ManUtd.com, with more exclusive content to watch out for.

Marc Skinner’s United Women continue their own pre-season training, while three members of his squad face a Euro 2022 semi-final – and potentially a final – before the week is out. The Academy also have a busy schedule as their season approaches.

In addition to this, there are a host of key dates and anniversaries to watch out for in the next seven days.
