Manchester City Football Club can confirm that our 2023/24 home Barclays Women’s Super League fixture against Manchester United will be hosted at the Etihad Stadium for the second season in succession.
Scheduled to be played over the weekend of March 23 and 24, 2024, the match will mark the fourth time that the team have played at the Etihad following fixtures against Everton in May 2014 and United in September 2019 and December 2022 respectively.
The latter, which took place last season, saw a club-record crowd of 44,259 pack into the stadium to watch an entertaining 1-1 draw where Laura Coombs’ header cancelled out Leah Galton’s opener.
City’s trip to United meanwhile – currently scheduled for Sunday 19 November 2023, kick off 12 noon – will be played at Old Trafford for the first time.
Speaking about the announcement, Head Coach Gareth Taylor said: “It’s fantastic news that we’ll be returning to the Etihad Stadium once again this coming season.
“Having a club-record crowd watch our WSL game against United last year was an incredibly proud moment for everybody involved with Manchester City and shows just how far we have come, both as a team and with the growth of the women’s game.
“We’ve seen so many new fans attending our games over the past year, and it will be brilliant to hopefully see many more joining us next March.”
Tickets for City’s home fixture will be available for supporters to purchase soon, and further information on this will be issued in advance of going on sale.
Fans wishing to purchase tickets for our fixture at Old Trafford in November however are encouraged to do so in the designated away end (Blocks E230, E231, E232 and E233) via Manchester United’s official channels.
