Manchester United's open training session to benefit charity

Manchester United's open training session to benefit charity

Manchester United is giving fans the chance to watch players train at an open training session at Old Trafford, with all proceeds from the day being donated to the Manchester United Foundation to fund its work in the local community.

Tickets are £6 for adults and £3 for children and concessions. Fans should get to see the likes of Wayne Rooney, Ryan Giggs and Javier ‘Chicharito’ Hernandez. Open Training starts at 9am, and the day will include fairground rides, inflatables and fun activities for the children.

Other entertainment on the day includes music from X-factor star Olly Murs and an international U15 tournament, granting some of the best youth players in the world an opportunity to display their talent. Former “fledglings” to compete in this tournament include Robinho, Torres, Iniesta, Fabregras and United’s very own Da Silva twins.

Friends of the Foundation receive a 50% discount for this event. Tickets can be booked by calling 0161 868 8000.
