FIXTURE CHANGE – FC United v Southport now on Sunday 7th January ko 3pm

Due to our home league game against Southport (originally scheduled to take place on Saturday 6th January) clashing with Manchester City’s home FA Cup game against Burnley, our match has now been rescheduled to take place the on Sunday 7th January kick-off 3pm.


Supporters may remember that early last season, we came to an arrangement with Manchester City Council whereby we were able to play home games at the same time as Manchester City. However, we have since been informed that the department who made this decision did not necessarily have the authority to do so, and the decision has, for the time being, been reversed.

We would like to reassure supporters that the club has amended the lease condition in the hope of coming to an arrangement similar to the one agreed upon last season, and this is currently with the council’s legal department.

We would like to thank Southport for their understanding on this issue and agreeing to play on the Sunday.

Sunday 7th January 2018, kick-off 3pm
National League North
FC United v Southport

Broadhurst Park
Lightbowne Road
Moston, Manchester M40 0FJ

Admission is pay on the gate
£10 Adults, £6 Concessions and £3 u/18s.

Due to the change in fixture, our annual BIG COAT DAY, where we encourage supporters to donate coats, warm winter clothing or footwear and blankets (in reasonable condition of course) for the homeless, will now take place on Sunday 7th January. We are currently in the progress of trying to arrange for collections to take place between 8am and 1pm on Saturday 6th January, as well as on the Sunday.

Launched in 2005, FC United’s Big Coat Day is the longest running part of our community programme and down the years we have worked with a number of charities to help acquire warm winter clothing for those most in need in the Manchester area.

So if you have any spare items that you would like to donate to this season’s Big Coat Day please bring them along to Broadhurst Park on the dates and times listed below.

Saturday 6th January – 8am to 1pm (to be finalised shortly)
Sunday 7th January – 11am to 2pm
