Manchester United fans are considering ramping up their #EmptyOldTrafford protests over the Glazer ownership by staging a widescale boycott of Old Trafford. A demonstration against the owners resulted in an Old Trafford megastore being closed prior to their Premier League opener on Sunday.
A video posted on Twitter by the anti-Glazer fan account 1958 shows a number of fans bearing a banner emblazoned with ‘Fight for United’ as fans call for the unpopular owners to sell the club.
United suffered a 2-1 defeat by Brighton in their first Premier League game under new manager Erik ten Hag, having lost 4-0 to the Seagulls at the tail-end of last season under Ralf Rangnick. The result appears to have fueled resentment towards the Glazer family at the club.
In the aftermath of the defeat, fans took to social media to call for a full boycott of the ground in order to send a powerful message to the American owners.
‘EmptyOldTrafford’ was trending on Twitter today, with several people likening the proposed walk-out to similar AC Milan moves in 2015.
Would #EmptyOldTrafford actually come to pass.
