Man Utd coming to Milton Keynes in April!

25 March 2017

MK Dons will be welcoming another of the world’s biggest football clubs to Stadium MK next month.

Lewis Higgs’ Under-15s will take on their Manchester United counterparts in the Gwen & Jim Mann Academy Challenge Match, sponsored by Kinship Logistics, on Friday 28th April, kick-off 7pm.

The fixture will give people the opportunity to see some potential stars of the future at both club and international level.

Last year’s showpiece event saw the Club entertain FC Barcelona in front of over 4k spectators – a game which the Dons win 3-0.

In previous years, the annual Academy Challenge Match has seen Young Dons sides face the likes of Chelsea, Tottenham Hotspur, Liverpool, Manchester City and Arsenal.

It has always been a chance for young players to shine – Chelsea’s highly-rated Ruben Loftus-Cheek featured for the Blues – and the likes of Dele Alli, Brendan Galloway and Sheyi Ojo all got their first taste of playing at Stadium MK in challenge matches.

A FREE ticket is available for current Academy Supporters’ Draw members and those who have already signed up for 2017/18.  These can only be claimed in person or by phone.

Tickets for all other supporters are priced at £5 for adults and £1 for under-18s.
