Old Trafford Will Light Up Blue Tonight In Support Of The NHS

The stadium will don the colour blue for a very special reason.

While the city is usually divided between red and blue, Manchester United will make an exception for this very special occasion, with Old Trafford lighting up blue tonight. But it’s not in support of their Mancunian rivals…

Lighting up at 8pm tonight, the stadium will glow a beautiful royal blue in support of the NHS during tonight’s #ClapForCarers – which takes place every Thursday across the nation. Announcing on his Twitter page, assistant manager of MUFC Mike Phelan confirmed the gesture, accompanied with the caption ‘8pm tonight’.

The stadium was also spotted glowing blue last night, with former Man United player Gary Neville sharing an image on his Twitter showing the temporarily blue exterior – with only the N, H and S of ‘MANCHESTER’ lit up.

Other buildings across the city will be continuing to light up blue each Thursday, including the new Nightingale Hospital at Manchester Central, MediaCityUK and Manchester Arndale.
