Manchester United have urged their supporters to stay away from behind-closed-doors games if the Premier League season resumes in June.

United are due to resume group training on Wednesday after clubs voted on Monday in favour of new medical protocols.

The Premier League are hoping to restart the season in June and if it does get back underway, games will have to be played behind closed doors due to the coronavirus pandemic.

There have been fears that playing matches at regular venues could lead to large gatherings outside the ground, which would go against the UK government advice.

United have contacted supporters to urge them to continue to follow the latest guidelines and to support the team from home.

In an email to supporters, United also confirmed they will refund season ticket and ticket holders for games held behind closed doors.

"We share your disappointment that you will not be able to watch United in person from within the stadium, but we would encourage you to give your continued loyal support from the comfort and safety of your home.

"To help with that, the Premier League and their media partners will work to deliver the very best broadcast coverage of our games.

"We also ask for your co-operation not to travel to any stadiums at which we are playing on matchdays.

"By supporting from home and following government guidance, you will be playing your part to keep your friends, your family and all United fans safe.

"This united effort to stay at home will give us the best chance of protecting the health of everyone in our community.

"We are committed to refunding ticket costs for these games and want to make the process as easy as possible for all supporters."
