What United Fans Want From the Fixtures

With the release of the Premier League fixtures now just a week away, the excitement for Manchester United’s return to action is growing all the time.

The Reds will learn our provisional league schedule for the 2019/20 season next Thursday (13 June) at 09:00 BST, when fans will be able to start planning for the new campaign.

Ahead of the eagerly anticipated fixtures-release day, we have been running a series of polls in the Official App to see what supporters want the computer to throw up.

We asked where you would like to start the season and an overwhelming 85 per cent of voters would like to be at Old Trafford on the opening weekend, as opposed to having an away game to begin the campaign with.

Interestingly, when asked which team you want to face first in 2019/20, 47 per cent of fans who voted in our poll want to start against a rival – including the likes of Manchester City and Liverpool. Thirty per cent want to take on a mid-table side and 24 per cent would like our opening match to be against one of the three newly promoted teams.

Aston Villa, Norwich City and Sheffield United came up from the Championship after Cardiff City, Fulham and Huddersfield Town suffered relegation from the top flight in 2018/19.
