The plan is for the lower part of the east stand and a section of seating in the north stand lower to be all disabled, which will increase disabled provision by 300.

The club has had positive consultations with MUDSA and the equalities human rights commission.

United are introducing a three-year phased programme of relocating current season ticket holders into new seats, the club is also to introduce a compensation package for fans inconvenienced by the plans, which includes money back and free cup tickets for up to a year.

Manchester United care greatly about its disabled supporters, but many fans will be a huge problem for the 2,600 and an extra 800 fans who are not disabled, some of the season ticket holders may well have had their seat for many decades and made good friends with those around them.
