Manchester United Women's Team May Train at St George’s Park

Manchester United considers relocating the women's team to St George’s Park due to Carrington renovations

Manchester United are considering using St George’s Park as a temporary training base for their women’s team due to ongoing renovations at their main Carrington training complex. The men's team will use the women's building during the 2024-25 season, prompting the women’s squad to potentially relocate to portable cabins.

The club has reportedly booked the FA’s facilities at St George’s Park from July 29 for two to three weeks to cover the interim period while temporary structures are put in place at Carrington. However, a final decision is pending as consultations with players and assessments of the timeline for setting up temporary facilities are ongoing.

This move has been criticized, with the Professional Footballers' Association stepping in to address concerns about the treatment of the women's team at Manchester United. The women’s squad was informed of the changes via a video meeting led by head of women’s football, Matt Johnson, as reported by The Athletic.

The women’s team ended the 2023-24 season as FA Cup winners but finished fifth in the Women’s Super League. Several key players, including Mary Earps, Katie Zelem, and Lucia Garcia, have departed, while Dominique Janssen has joined the team. The Women's Super League 2024/25 season will commence on the weekend of September 21-22.
