THE RED ARMY - 2018/19 REGISTRATION

Introduction

The Red Army are an independent group of ST holders with a single aim - return the once famous atmosphere to Old Trafford.

Our group is led by a number of supporters who have a thorough understanding of the traditional values of United’s match going fan-base and many of them have been following United, home and away, since the 70s. Right at the heart of every decision the group have made has been the importance of doing things ‘the United way’ and remaining true to the traditions and values of our support.

Objective

Return Old Trafford’s once famous atmosphere and reclaim its reputation of being the loudest stadium in England.

Guiding Principles

We believe that any future areas that we manage should:

   - Be populated by the most vocal fans

   - Allow groups of friends to stand together

   - Encourage young fans to attend with their friends

   - Be an area that younger fans should aspire to join once they are old enough

   - Retain a sizeable element of 'older' fans to help retain traditional 'Utd' culture

   - Discourage complacency

   - Discourage ticket abuse (pass-ons / touting)

We will therefore be applying the following rules for applications

   - Minimum age of 8 years

   - Limited number of STs in the area

   - Match by match applications for remainder of available seats

   

BEFORE APPLYING

It is worth considering that as we are trying to encourage a return to the days when groups of friends were able to attend games together, priority will be given to larger groups. Therefore it is worth speaking to your friends or other ST holders you know and organising yourselves into groups before making your application.

PRIORITY APPLICATIONS

We anticipate prioritising applications as follows:

LARGE GROUPS

ST HOLDERS WHO HAVE REMAINED LOYAL TO THE PROCESS FROM J-STAND

ST HOLDERS WHO ARE REFERRED TO US AS VOCAL FANS BY MEMBERS KNOWN TO US

ST HOLDERS WHO HAVE A HIGH NUMBER OF UTD RD APPLICATIONS

PLEASE NOTE

This does not mean that individual or smaller group applications will not be successful.

We anticipate being heavily over subscribed, please register your details with us asap.
