It will not be a mandatory requirement to gain entry to Old Trafford, and fans who are unable to provide the necessary proof will still be allowed in providing they have not tested positive for Covid.

But United expect it to become mandatory from October 1 following advice from the Government and Premier League with more trials being rolled out across the top-flight this month.

Fans under 18 years of age will not be required to demonstrate their Covid status, but United are encouraging them to have an up-to-date lateral flow test before attending a match.
