“Re-establishing a women’s football team at Manchester United would make a real contribution to raising the profile of women’s sport, and would help increase female participation in sport both here and in other countries where the club has female fans.
I really do hope that Manchester United follow the lead of other Premier League clubs and do what their fans have asked them to do by re-establishing a women’s team. “
A petition calling for Manchester United to form a women's team has been signed by more than 3300 people. The club disbanded its ladies side in 2005.
