Manchester United Fans Flood Onto Old Trafford Pitch During Protest

Manchester United fans have stormed the pitch at Old Trafford to protest the Glazers, just hours before the team are due to face Liverpool.


There has been large unrest amongst fans of the Premier League side ever since the American owners took charge at the club.

Over the years there has been many 'Glazer Out' campaigns but the ill feeling towards the Tampa Bay Buccaneers' owners has grown in recent times due to the European Super League debacle.

There was a protest outside the ground last weekend but on Sunday, ahead of the game with Liverpool, they were ramped up with thousands present at the 'Theatre of Dreams.'

The protests were not kept to outside the ground as a large group managed to get past security and break into the ground, storming the pitch with flares and chanting 'We want Glazers out.'

Some fans were so triumphant in conquering security and getting on the pitch that they returned to the masses protesting outside of the ground with a corner flag.

United are due to play rivals Liverpool at 4.30 pm on Sunday but that kick off time is now in jeopardy, and the game could be called off altogether.

The match kicking off on time was already in doubt earlier in the afternoon, when another group of fans disrupted the team away from the ground in another protest.

Fans gathered outside the Lowry Hotel in central Manchester, where the players gather ahead of games, and surrounded the team bus.
