Red News - who we are

What is Red News?

RedNews was founded in 1987. It’s simple premise; to give normal, match going Reds a voice, an opportunity to give their views to Reds near and far and read those of others who didn't have a voice.  Not one view, or party line, but diverse opinions on all manner of topics about the club we love. We have now published 267 fanzines, and sold at over 1000 Manchester United matches.

Serious, jovial, history; now, on field and off it. Times have changed, and we have changed with it but stayed true to our core; once a month you can read detail and articles you won’t find anywhere else. With info and gossip from contacts we have developed over three decades.

But we are still on sale in the exact same spots at Old Trafford where you would have found us 32 years ago.

Why is it different?

It doesn’t toe the party line, it’s 100% unofficial, for adults and a fanzine represents the voices of supporters who don’t usually have a vehicle to offer their opinion at length on topics of their choice. 

It is a space for letters, interviews, opinion, memories, exclusive interviews, without censure or copy approval - and to poke fun and prod at the powers that be, and, of course our rivals as much as ourselves.

Why is it still so important?

Because the concerns from 1987 are still relevant today, and, with our current owners and off pitch business lopsided mentality, a voice is as, if not more, important than ever.
