FC UNITED OF MANCHESTER STADIUM SET FOR DECEMBER OPENING

FC United of Manchester are on course to unveil their new Broadhurst Park home this December.

The venue, based in Moston, will finally see the club have a stadium of its own following many years of ground sharing with the likes of Bury at Gigg Lane.

The £5.5million, 4,400-seater facility will open for home matches in just over a month, and will bring to an end uncertainty over the clubs playing future.

Michael Holdsworth, community administrator at FC United of Manchester said: "It will be amazing to finally have our own ground. Not just for the first team, but somewhere where the reserves can play, and the women's team can play.

"There's a lot of interest in the community and some people are buying season tickets for the first time."
