Manchester United Guests of Honour at New Aviva Stadium
Manchester United take on players from Irish teams tonight as guests of honour at the refurbished ground.
The Aviva Stadium has 50,000 seats, green of course, and it's fitting that United are the first team to play there.
As the FAI mark the Aviva Stadium opening with all the pomp and elaborate ceremony the vastly over-priced tickets would suggest, Manchester United are, despite their forbidding fee, entirely suited to the role of honoured guests. Manchester United has always had a strong Irish contingent within the club.
