Official FCUM DVD


The Punk Football site has been asked to put this announcement up on behalf of the club.

Supporters of FC United of Manchester can re-live the first half of the club’s extraordinary inaugural season with the release of a review on DVD.

Featuring 93minutes of action from 14 games and 51 goals, the DVD has been issued in response to supporter demand.

It includes highlights from the newly-formed club’s first friendly at Leigh RMI through to their 3-1 January victory over Nelson in division two of the North West Counties League.

There are also interactive galleries, fans’ clips and a bonus short film: “The People Versus Malcolm Glazer”.

FC United, formed in July 2005 by disillusioned and disenfranchised Manchester United fans, is currently top of the division and attracts record-breaking attendances which have placed the club as the 87th best-supported in the country.

The review of the season to date charts the huge crowds, witty chants and genuine passion for the team in red.

Andy Walsh, FC United board member and acting general manager, said: “When we started this, we didn’t know what to expect. We arrived at Leigh wondering whether anyone would turn up.

“Well they did, and since then things have got better and better. Our season has been captured on video and we decided to release the DVD after supporters told us it was what they wanted.

“It’s brilliant to look back on what has been achieved and the DVD will serve as a little piece of history for all those who have enjoyed the ride.”

The DVD is available now for £12.99 from, with all profits going back into the club.
