The League Two side will host the fixture, and the club have announced that they will be erecting a temporary stand for the match.
Newport County to erect temporary stand for Man United FA Cup clash
Newport County temporary stand in place for Wrexham
The club's temporary stand will be constructed prior to their much-anticipated league match against Wrexham – the first all-Welsh affair hosted at Rodney Parade in over a decade. The stand will then remain in place until they face Man United in their following fixture, which takes place on January 28, at 4:30 pm.
The stand will increase the stadium's capacity by 1,000, to a total of 9,000 and should result in a more intense atmosphere to cheer the underdogs on.
Manchester United, however, will also have more fans of their own as, in order for Newport to adhere to FA guidelines regarding ticket allocation, the away side will be provided with an extra 400 seats in the away end.
It will be the first time United fans have travelled to Rodney Parade for a competitive fixture, in an FA Cup tie that Newport Manager, Graham Coughlan, has described as “a hell of an occasion.”
