United considers gender-neutral toilets at Old Trafford

Manchester United is considering introducing gender-neutral toilets at Old Trafford in a move that would mark a first for a Premier League football club.

United feels that the initiative would make the match-day experience at Old Trafford more “welcoming and inclusive”.

Speaking at United’s September fans’ forum, the club’s head of security Jim Liggett said: “It’s something we are looking at as we are keen to ensure that Old Trafford continues to be welcoming and inclusive to all supporters; I will keep you posted regarding progress.

“Our commitment to equality, diversity and inclusion is important in everything that we do and we’re constantly working with key stakeholders, including Stonewall, on such topics.”

Liggett also confirmed that the club is carrying out plans to improve security around Old Trafford.

He said: “There is a programme to install high-security hostile vehicle mitigation bollards at a number of points around the perimeter of the stadium; these works are scheduled for completion ahead of the New Year (however the work activity will be phased to minimise the impact on match days).”
