The Manchester United women’s team is set for a historic first as they prepare to play at Old Trafford for the first time.

In what has been described as a “special moment” in the team’s history, the team will play next week’s WSL game against West Ham at the Theatre of Dreams.

Manchester United forward Marcus Rashford was quick to celebrate the news tweeting: “Yes @ManUtdWomen exactly where they deserve to be. Theres no feeling like playing at OT. Enjoy it, we are rooting for you.”

Meanwhile, manager Casey Stone added that: “playing at Old Trafford will obviously be a special moment in the history of this team.”

She said it was a “fantastic opportunity to showcase the women’s game” after considerable growth recently.

The March international break in the Premier League and men’s Championship will see women’s football right in the spotlight and has given Manchester United the opportunity to make the historic move.

They will play at Old Trafford for the first time on Saturday 27 at 10.30pm.

“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,” Stone added.

“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.”

Collette Roche, Chief Operating Officer, said: “We are thrilled to be hosting our women’s team at Old Trafford. 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.”
