First Team Open Day

Team up with F.C.

Want to see Margy’s new signings for yourself? Get up close and personal to the FC squad at our open training day.

FC United’s pre-season training is taking place at Burnage Rugby Club off Didsbury Road in Heaton Mersey where supporters are invited to meet up with the players and watch as the coaching staff put the players through their paces in preparation for the new season.

Burnage Rugby Club provides an ideal base for our pre-season training, as well as training pitches the site provides access to a variety of training runs through the surrounding area. The facilities include a 9-hole golf course and a clubhouse which is open to FC supporters. The rugby club have made us very welcome and we will be looking to build the relationship further as the club develops an artificial playing surface.

The Open Day is free admission, refreshments will be available and the clubhouse will be open, so bring along the whole family and your autograph book.

Meet the players, the manager, the coaching staff and the new signings. Have your photo taken with the players and the trophies either with your own camera or by one of our club photographers who will be on hand.

You can try to win one of our football competitions; hit the cross bar, ball juggling or if you fancy yourself as a bit of a Johnny Wilkinson, why not try your hand (or foot) in our rugby kick competition.

Plus there will be the opportunity to pre order the new blue kit plus membership and season ticket stall. A-Line boots will also be in attendance, offering a range of football boots at exclusive prices with every sale generating funds for FC.
