MANCHESTER UNITED have begged fans to “stay away from any stadium at which we are playing” as they reveal their behind-closed-doors game plans.

In a long email sent to supporters, Old Trafford chiefs pleaded with them to watch matches from the comfort of their own home due to coronavirus.

The Premier League is hoping to restart on June 12 and will do so behind closed doors and quite possibly NOT at neutral stadiums.

Man Utd’s game against Tottenham is likely to be the first top-flight match back, broadcast as the Friday night game.

United’s email to fans read: “We share your disappointment that you will not be able to watch United in person from within the stadium.

“But we would encourage you to give your continued loyal support from the comfort and safety of your home.

“To help with that, the Premier League and their media partners will work to deliver the very best broadcast coverage of our games.

“We also ask for your co-operation not to travel to any stadiums at which we are playing on matchdays.

“By supporting from home and following government guidance, you will be playing your part to keep your friends, your family and all United fans safe.

“This united effort to stay at home will give us the best chance of protecting the health of everyone in our community.”

The message to United supporters continued by saying it’s “widely accepted” games will be played behind closed doors.

It read: “The Premier League and other football authorities have yet to finalise the arrangements to resume season 2019/20.

“Following the publication of the UK government’s recovery strategy on May 11, it is now widely accepted that any matches that may take place will only do so behind closed doors.

“We are committed to refunding ticket costs for these games and want to make the process as easy as possible for all supporters.

“As you have not yet renewed your season ticket for the 2020/21 season, we will reduce the cost of your 2020/21 season ticket by the value of the four games missed.

“This means your Season Ticket will be priced at £. The amendment may take up to 14 days to action and we will send confirmation when this is complete. Please bear with us during this time.

“Please note, Uefa have not yet advised whether or not our home game against LASK in the Europa League will still go ahead.

“However, if you have purchased a ticket for this game and the game is cancelled or played behind closed doors, we will automatically refund the card used to pay for your match ticket(s).

“Following our initial communication outlining our refund policy, we have received a number of requests to donate supporter refunds to the Manchester United Foundation.

“We are unable to action these directly however, if you would like to find out more about the Manchester United Foundation and make a donation, please click here.”

The email concluded by saying the club are still unsure as to when the 2020-21 season will begin.

It finished: “We are yet to receive confirmation regarding when the 2020/21 season will commence.

“Once there is more certainty around next season’s fixture schedule, we will be back in touch to provide further information and confirm the Season Ticket renewal deadline.

“We hope you and your loved ones are keeping well. Thank you for your continued support and we look forward to welcoming you back to Old Trafford when it is safe to do so.”
