Manchester United are putting the finishing touches on their singing section at Old Trafford, which they plan to unveil tomorrow in their UEFA Champions League match against Real Sociedad.

The section, named “The Scoreboard Paddock,” has a “We are the Scoreboard, the Scoreboard Paddock” banner that has been hoisted in the corner of the ground where the away fans used to sit. The 1,500 seated area will now be the home of Manchester United’s singing section, in hopes that it’ll improve the atmosphere at Old Trafford.

United supporters who have tickets for The Scoreboard Paddock have been asked to arrive at the ground early so that the singing can start as early as 25 minutes before the match kick offs.

    That is funny.
    What if you don’t sing in the singing bit or sing in the non-singing bit. Will they chuck you out?

  5. Tony says:

    Is it April the 1st?

  6. Ardwickian says:

    They’ve had one page songsheets printed in twenty-five difrent languages to be handed out.

  7. Marc L says:

    The jokes as to the specific song selections would just write themselves, I think. But instead I will say good for them – seriously. Most of the bigger clubs in England could majorly use an upgrade in the atmosphere department.
