Today’s football game at Old Trafford Stadium between MUFC and AFC Bournemouth was canceled due a bomb threat. But when will the final league game of the season be made up?

It has not been officially announced yet when the make-up game will be, but early reports suggest Tuesday night, May 17.

The official answer will be posted on The Guardian’s Premiere League Clockwatch. Click here to check the Clockwatch.


Shortly before kickoff today, Manchester United tweeted from their official Twitter account that a suspicious package was found in the northwest corner of the stadium and that police were currently investigating.

It was later determined that the match would be called off altogether. Sky News reports that the 3 pm kickoff was canceled shortly after MUFC’s tweet went out and that the players were sent back to their locker rooms as the stadium was evacuated. BBC Sports reports that “Two stands – the Sir Alex Ferguson Stand and the Stretford End – were evacuated before the home game against Bournemouth and sniffer dogs brought in to search the stands.”
