What's happening this week at United?

Monday 13 March 2023 13:32

It’s set to be another busy week at Manchester United, with matches for our men’s and women’s teams, as well as our Under-21s and Under-18s.

The aforementioned sides are all in action between today and next Sunday, with Erik ten Hag’s senior Reds playing twice. 

That means we have plenty of live and exclusive coverage, build-up and reaction coming your way over the next seven days. Plus there are several notable anniversaries and new releases for you to be aware of. 

So, here is our round-up of what’s happening this week at United…

We begin the week by providing further reaction to Sunday's games for our men and women, with the former drawing 0-0 against Southampton in the Premier League, while the latter were narrowly beaten 1-0 at Chelsea in the WSL.

We’re also wishing a very happy birthday to the Manchester United Foundation, established 16 years ago today!

Our Under-21s were scheduled to play Leicester City in Premier League 2 this evening (19:00 GMT), but the match has been postponed as of this afternoon due to a waterlogged pitch at Leigh Sports Village. Details of the new date and time for the fixture will be announced in due course.


On Tuesday, we'll be starting to preview our next game in two days' time: the second leg of our Europa League last-16 tie at Real Betis on Thursday. Ten Hag's men take a 4-1 lead over to Spain, following last week’s comfortable first-leg victory at Old Trafford.

We’ll be looking ahead to that fixture in a brand-new episode of our talk show, The Debate. Meanwhile, April’s edition of our official monthly magazine, Inside United, is available in stores and also online via manutd.com/magazine. Look out for January loan signing Marcel Sabitzer on the cover.


The eve of our meeting with Real Betis in the Europa League promises to be another busy day.

The Reds will have an open training session at Carrington before departing for Spain, and we will bring you news of which players have travelled for the match. Later in the day, Ten Hag will hold his customary pre-match press conference, while being joined by a member of his squad.


United will be looking to complete the job against Real Betis and book our place in the Europa League quarter-finals. The second leg kicks off at the earlier time of 17:45 GMT, and our Matchday Live show will be on air from 16:40 for all the best build-up. That will be followed by live radio commentary and post-match reaction from Spain, as part of our exclusive coverage that can be found across MUTV, ManUtd.com and in the United App. 

We will also be wishing a very happy birthday to United Women defender Aissatou Tounkara!

Should the Reds progress past Betis on aggregate, we will have the Europa League quarter-finals draw to look forward to on Friday morning. The semi-final will also be mapped out and, for administrative reasons, it will even be decided which half of the draw will produce the ‘home’ team in the final! That all gets under way from 12:00 GMT at the House of European Football in Nyon, Switzerland.

We will also bring you Erik’s pre-match press conference, ahead of his side's final game before the March international break - on Sunday, against Fulham in the Emirates FA Cup quarter-finals. 

It’s also St Patrick’s Day, so we’ll be sending good wishes to all of our Irish Reds.


Our Under-18s will be back in action on Saturday morning, when Stoke City are the visitors at Carrington in the U18 Premier League. That game kicks off at 11:00 GMT and is live on MUTV, ManUtd.com and the United App, with coverage starting at 10:45. 

It’s also the birthday of full-back Diogo Dalot (24) and former United manager Ron Atkinson (84). Many happy returns to both!

On Mother’s Day in the UK, there are three United games taking place. It’s derby day for our Under-21s, who travel to Manchester City in Premier League 2 (12:00 GMT KO), and that match gets under way shortly before our women’s team continue their Vitality Women's FA Cup journey by travelling to Championship side Lewes (12:30), for a quarter-final you can follow by listening to live radio commentary on MUTV, ManUtd.com and the United App.

Our men are in Emirates FA Cup action at Old Trafford later in the day, hosting Fulham in the last eight (16:30). Our Matchday Live show will have exclusive pre-match build-up from 15:25, before live radio commentary and post-match reaction direct from the Theatre of Dreams.
