By leaving 17 minutes early - a minute for every year the Glazers have owned United - the group hope a powerful message will be sent to United's American owners.

Supporters have also been asked by the group to meet by the Trinity Statue outside the ground's East Stand an hour before kick-off.

The 1958 vow to maintain protests against Glazers

 

The 1958 have staged protest marches before United's last two home games, both attracting hundreds of supporters.

Before United's 1-1 draw with Chelsea on Thursday, the group told JOE they intend to sustain the protest into next season - adding that the arrival of Erik ten Hag in the summer would not deter them.
