How to watch United's FA Youth Cup tie

Thursday 24 February 2022 15:00

Manchester United's FA Youth Cup quarter-final against Leicester City will be shown live on MUTV this Thursday evening.

The official channel's coverage begins at 18:45 GMT with confirmation of the side selected by Under-18s coach Travis Binnion, as the Reds look to extend an impressive run in the prestigious knockout competition.

Although the deadline for snapping up the 10,000 free tickets for Old Trafford passed this morning, UK and Ireland-based fans who can't attend in person can still watch every kick on MUTV when the match gets under way at 19:00 GMT.

This includes online at, in the MUTV mobile app and on devices such as Amazon Fire, Apple TV, Xbox One and Roku.

Youth Cup is ‘an important tradition’

The Under-23s will be in action on Friday evening, when Derby County are the visitors to Leigh Sports Village for a Premier League 2 fixture at 19:00 GMT. Unfortunately, Premier League rules prohibit MUTV from showing the match live - due to Southampton v Norwich City being screened by Sky Sports on the same night - but the full 90 minutes will be broadcast on our channel at 22:00 GMT.
