The UEFA Champions League is back, with 32 of the continent's biggest and best teams ready to stake their claim on being crowned kings of Europe. After a slew of false dawns in the post-Alex Ferguson era, Manchester United may hope to embark on an impressive run through the tournament again.
Success in Europe's top continental knockout event has been slim for the Red Devil. Still, under Erik ten Hag, they will join holders and rivals Manchester City, plus Arsenal and Newcastle United from the Premier League, alongside perennial heavyweights Barcelona, Bayern Munich, Paris Saint-Germain and Real Madrid, in the race for glory.
But how can you get tickets to catch them in play on their journey across the continent? GOAL breaks down just how you can get tickets to see Manchester United in action during the 2023-24 Champions League, including where to buy them, how much they will cost, and much more.

What is Manchester United's Champions League journey so far?
The success of Manchester United, both in generations past and in the Premier League era, is intertwined intimately with the UEFA Champions League - and its predecessor iteration, the European Cup. The Red Devils are three-time winners, once under Matt Busby and twice under Alex Ferguson, last claiming glory in 2008.
With the victory for Manchester City in last term's final, there have now been six clubs from England who have secured the top prize. Still, only Liverpool can boast a greater record in the UEFA Champions League than United, whose first victory under the new format came as part of a sensational treble in 1999, with memorable late drama.
Recent form has been substandard, though, with just two quarter-final appearances to their name since Ferguson retired, the last of which came in 2019. Last year's run in Europe ended with a Europa League quarter-final loss to Sevilla, in a match that genuinely soured the club's fanbase on captain Harry Maguire; they'll hope for more this term.
Who will Manchester United face in the Champions League?
Manchester United will begin their 2023-24 UEFA Champions League campaign with six group-stage matches played in Group A. Despite finishing third in the Premier League, a strong UEFA coefficient score saw the Red Devils drawn as the second seed for their group, and they will be expected to seal knockout stage progression.
United will face three teams, home and away, between September and December and have arguably been handed one of the tougher groups on paper. They will play against Bayern Munich, from Germany's Bundesliga, Copenhagen, from Denmark's Superliga, and Galatasaray, from the Turkish Super Lig.
