Manchester United women to play at Old Trafford for the first time

The Manchester United's women's team will play at Old Trafford for the first time when they face West Ham United next week.

In what the club is calling a "historic step", the Women's Super League clash between Manchester United and the Hammers on Saturday 27 March (k/o: 11:30) will take place at the Theatre of Dreams.

The men's team are playing away from home against AC Milan in the Europa League this week and against Leicester City in the FA Cup on Saturday and won't be at home again until after the international break.

The Manchester United women's team usually play their home games at Leigh Sports Village and head coach Casey Stoney feels the move for this game is important for the team and for the women's game.

"Playing at Old Trafford will obviously be a special moment in the history of this team and it’s a fantastic opportunity to showcase the women’s game, which has seen huge growth over the last few years," Stoney told manutd.com.

"We, of course, will miss our fans. They are such an important part of this club and we have felt their amazing support from afar throughout the season. We are all eager to get them back in the stands as soon as possible and hope that there will be many more opportunities to play at Old Trafford in the future."

Manchester United chief operating officer, Collette Roche, is only sorry that supporters can't be there to witness the landmark game.

"We are thrilled to be hosting our women’s team at Old Trafford," said Roche. "The international break this month created a gap in this season’s relentless programme at the stadium and we all agreed that this was the right time to welcome Casey and her squad to Old Trafford.

"We would have loved for fans to able to be there to witness this moment, but that time will come. For now, our preparations are in full swing as we set the stage to host our match with West Ham United next week."
