Casey Stoney’s Manchester United side will play at Old Trafford for the very first time when West Ham United provide the opposition on 27 March.
The Red Devils have never played at the club’s traditional home since the formation of their senior professional side in 2018.
Manchester United have today announced that the club’s upcoming Barclays FA Women’s Super League fixture against The Hammers will be switched from The Leigh Sports Village to Old Trafford, allowing the players a well-deserved opportunity to play their football at ‘The Theatre of Dreams’.
The match will kick-off at 11.30am and will be available for fans to stream live on the FA Player. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, no spectators will be admitted to the match.
Manchester United’s fixture against West Ham United could prove to be an important one in The Red Devils’ pursuit of UEFA Women’s Champions League qualification. Stoney’s side are currently six points clear of fourth-placed Arsenal, however, Manchester United travel to Meadow Park on Friday. The Gunners have played one game less and also boast a significantly stronger goal difference.
The last time that Manchester United met West Ham United, The Red Devils ran out 4-2 winners at The Chigwell Construction Stadium in Dagenham. Alessia Russo netted a double that day while Tobin Heath and Christen Press were also on target. The Hammers will be keen for revenge in the latest meeting with the East Londoners currently embroiled in a relegation battle.
