Manchester United to trial singing section at Old Trafford

Published 3 Comments

Manchester United are to trial a singing section in a bid to improve the atmosphere at Old Trafford, according to the Manchester Evening News.

The Premier League champions have explored several ways to improve the overall atmosphere at Old Trafford, including a singing section.

They ran a trial for those fans keen to sing throughout the 90 minutes last season, but Manchester City's Poznan celebration ended it.

The plan required shifting away fans at Old Trafford to the top tier, but City's backs-turned goal celebration made that too dangerous. A police report raised concerns that the third tier could 'flex' under the pressure of the jumping celebration.

But the report claims United will try it again against Real Sociedad in the Champions League on October 23.

And Manchester United midfielder Michael Carrick lent his support to the idea on Twitter. He said: "Great idea to have a singing section. If I was going as a fan that's where I'd be..."

United's most vocal fans will be housed in the current away supporters section in Old Trafford's East Stand.

The plan also involves flags and banners as the club looks to create a raucous atmosphere for the visit of the La Liga club.

Season ticket holders will be given the opportunity to move into the singing section, which will hold 1,400 United fans.
