Manchester United supporters' groups have called off a scheduled boycott of Saturday's Premiership game against West Brom at Old Trafford.
Supporters have held protests outside Old Trafford
Fans hoped to register their protest against the proposed £800m takeover bid from American tycoon Malcolm Glazer.
But the "Not For Sale" coalition felt it had not left enough time to drum up enthusiasm for the protest.
A march to Old Trafford from the nearby cricket ground has also been cancelled as they await Glazer's next move.
Glazer is currently in discussions with major backers JP Morgan and NM Rothschild over whether to proceed with a formal offer.
But the 78-year-old has been given a 17 May deadline by the Takeover Panel to make known whether he plans to launch a bid.
Even as the boycott was being announced on Wednesday, dissenting voices were being heard.
Rather than act as a focal point for an anti-Glazer stance, some fans felt it would only serve to undermine their argument if the vast majority of ticket holders opted to ignore the call to stay out of the stadium.
With supporters routinely heading to Manchester from all points of the United Kingdom and Ireland, it was felt asking them to make the journey but not watch the game was a step too far.
