On this day….

On this day….

50 years ago today, the final for the 1968 European Cup Final was played at Wembley Stadium between Manchester United and Benfica. Manchester United won the match 4-1 after extra time and were crowned champions of Europe for the first time in their history.

Bobby Charlton scored first with a header in the opening 8 minutes but United’s lead would only last for 22 minutes before Benfica equalized. After all 90 minutes had been played the score remained tied at 1 and the match went into extra time. George Best gave United the lead three minutes into extra time. Brian Kidd, celebrating his 19th birthday that day, scored United’s third a minute later. Before 100 minutes had been played, Charlton scored United’s fourth and final goal. 

With this win, Manchester United became the first English side to win the European Cup a year after Celtic had become the first British side to do so. This win also came 10 years after the terrible events of the Munich Air Disaster in which 8 United players lost their lives and Matt Busby was left fighting for his life. Bobby Charlton and Bill Foulkes had both been on the accident and both played in the final. United had spent 10 years rebuilding their squad and this win was the culmination of all their hard work. 

To commemorate this win, Manchester United are selling a special edition jersey modeled after the uniform the players wore on that day. Head over to United’s Store to get your own

Manchester United’s application for a women’s team has been approved by the FA. The team will be called “Manchester United Women” and will be based out of The Cliff once redevelopment is complete.

Ed Woodward, commented:

“The board is delighted that the FA has approved the application. The new women’s team will build on the success of the Girls’ Regional Talent Club and have the same philosophy as all Manchester United sides, creating a pathway from academy to first team.

We will be making some exciting announcements in the coming days and weeks. Starting a professional team from scratch is challenging but rewarding and we will make every effort to provide the support and experience for the new women’s team to be successful and to uphold the fine traditions of our great club.”
