Manchester United is committed to keeping our fans informed about the impact of coronavirus (COVID-19) on the club, and the steps being taken in response to the pandemic. The following information is being regularly updated as the situation evolves.


The Premier League restarted the 2019-20 season on 17 June. Sadly, this included the requirement that all matches for the remainder of the 2019-20 season were to be played behind closed doors.

In agreement with all Premier League clubs, the 2019-20 season's Academy programme has been curtailed from Under-23s to Under-9s.

All remaining Women’s games have been cancelled following the decision by the FA Women’s Super League to end the 2019/20 season.

The 2020/21 season is scheduled to begin on the 12th September. Fixtures for the 2020/21 season are still to be confirmed. 


In recognition that the remaining games of the 2019-20 have been behind closed doors, Manchester United has offered season ticket holders either a pro-rata rebate against their season tickets for next year, or a pro-rata cash refund based on the number of games still to be played. This rebate or refund also applies to supporters who have paid in advance for general admission tickets or Matchday VIP packages for the games impacted this season. A rebate has also been offered to seasonal Executive Club members.

The club has directly contacted all fans who are impacted to provide further information on how the rebates, refunds and renewals have been administered.


The Season Ticket renewal deadline, initially 1 May, has been suspended. This will be continuously reviewed and a new deadline will be put in place in due course. The club commits to giving as much notice of the revised renewal deadline as possible given the evolving situation.


The Manchester United Megastore has reopened, with a series of measures in place to protect the health of visitors and staff. For details of those measures and opening times, please visit

The Manchester United Megastore is now open

Visitors are welcome to our world-renowned store in the East Stand of Old Trafford stadium within the following opening times:

Monday to Saturday: 10:00-17:00 BST
Sunday: 11:00-17:00 BST

The Megastore will be closed on days when matches are taking place behind closed doors at Old Trafford.

In line with UK government guidance on coronavirus, we have taken a series of steps to ensure that visitors can shop in comfort and safety, while keeping our staff members safe.

These include:

- A limit on the number of customers allowed in store at any one time, to ensure that people can remain two metres apart. This may mean that customers have to wait before entering
- Our team will ensure that shopping baskets are cleaned before and after each use and hand sanitiser is available for use by customers at multiple points within the store
- Changing rooms are currently closed but we have extended our returns period to 90 days. This applies to items purchased in store only. While receipts won’t show the new date, rest assured our colleagues will add the additional time from the printed date when you return an item in future
- Our name-printing service is currently only available for shirts bought in-store at the time of purchase
- Only card payments are currently being accepted to avoid the need for cash handling

For all enquiries relating to the Megastore, please email:

The Museum and Stadium Tour, and the Red Cafe will remain closed until further notice, in line with government guidelines.
