MANCHESTER United have chosen to play their home fixtures in the Barclays U21 Premier League at Leigh Sports Village this season.

The action kicks off against recent FA Youth Cup winners Norwich City on Friday August 15 at 7pm and United will also host Liverpool, Chelsea, Everton and many more at the stadium over the course of the season.

The format of the Barclays U21 Premier League has changed this season, with United in the elite 12-team Division 1 after finishing third last season.

“We’re so pleased to be able to bring Manchester United’s great young players to Leigh this season,” said Leigh Sports Village’s Chief Executive Simon Toon.

“When United played their one-off game at LSV last season it was their highest attendance of the season so the people of Leigh have really made this happen.”

The Barclays U21 Premier League sees some of the most exciting young football talent in the country rubbing shoulders with multimillion pound stars.

Last season, United progressed to the knockout stage where they beat Liverpool before narrowly losing to Chelsea in the final.

As a special offer, the first game against Norwich will be free for those who register by e-mailing football@leighsportsvillage.co.uk
