Manchester United have revealed their plans to bring fans back to Old Trafford amid the coronavirus pandemic.
The club recently revealed that it plans to have fans at the ground for their match against Leeds United on December 20.
According to the club’s chief operating officer Collette Roche, MUFC is eager to welcome the supporters back and thank them in advance for their patience and co-operation with the club’s new operating policies that are in place to keep everyone safe.
He added that everyone at Old Trafford is making the experience as safe as possible for them and their families during matchdays.
His words, “It is important to present these conditional plans for the return of our fans to allow preparations to be made.
“We are eager to welcome them back and thank them in advance for their patience and co-operation with our new operating policies that are in place to keep everyone safe. Responsible behaviour will help build trust and confidence, helping us move back to greater capacity numbers in the future once Manchester’s restrictions are reduced.
“We know we are asking a lot from our fans in terms of the adjustments to their usual match day routines. In return, we are committed to making the experience as safe as possible for them and their families and have also kept ticket prices low.”
“A word of caution: fans must consider their own health before applying for any provisional ballots and pay attention to the local restrictions which are in place wherever they live. They should also carefully read all the detailed information which we will be sending to those who are successful in future ballots.
“We also thank the ongoing support of Trafford Council, our local suppliers and staff who have worked hard to develop these plans.”
