The fixture time for Manchester United’s Premier League game against Aston Villa on September 25 at Old Trafford has been changed.
The kick-off time for the game has been switched from 3pm to 12.30pm to avoid crowd and traffic congestion due to the The Courteeners having a concert at the Old Trafford Cricket Ground on the same day.
A club statement read: “Our home match against Aston Villa on 25 September has been brought forward to a 12.30 BST kick-off, following a request from Trafford Council Safety Advisory Group to move the game due to the Courteeners concert at Lancashire Cricket Club, Emirates Old Trafford, on the same day.
“This request was supported by Greater Manchester Police and TfGM to avoid significant crowd, traffic and operational issues locally.
“We regret any disruption that this may cause around our supporters’ plans for the day.”
