Manchester United Women will play at Old Trafford for the second time this season as they face West Ham United at the Theater of Dreams in March.
The match is scheduled to take place at 12:30 pm on March 25, making it the first women’s match to be held there in 2023.
United beat Aston Villa 5-0 at Old Trafford in the WSL in their last game. It is the final of his three women’s games at Old Trafford in 2022, following United’s game against Everton and the Lioness’ opening game at the Euros.
Over 100,000 fans attended these three games last year, and even more crowds are expected in March as fans continue to break attendance records at Lee Sports Village.
In United’s final home game against Liverpool, 7,666 set another attendance record at LSV as the Reds beat their rivals.
The Mark Skinner-led team got off to a great start to this WSL campaign and are now top of the table at the mid-point after Rachel Williams’ 87th-minute winner scored all three points against Reading over the weekend.
Speaking on the team’s return to Old Trafford, Skinner said:
“As the women’s game continues to grow, we are delighted that this great football club remains at the heart of it, offering both old and new fans an incredible opportunity to experience the Manchester United women’s game on the biggest stage. .”
Head of Women’s Football Polly Bancroft said: “This is another great opportunity for the women of Manchester United and for our incredible fans to set a record attendance record at Old Trafford for the third time in a row. It will be a great opportunity to renew,” he added.
“I can’t wait to see everyone cheering us on at the Theater of Dreams, an incredible spectacle of the women’s game,” she concluded.
New signings Jade Riviere and Estelle Cascarino are yet to make an appearance at the club but could make their debut at Old Trafford.
Canadian defender Riviere has been promoted to red, so it’s sure to be an opportunity for new recruits to cherish and succeed.
She’s back in full shape from her injury, which could give Skinner some rest over the next few weeks, but everyone wants her to be perfectly fit to clash with the Hammer.
