History and description

Construction began in 1910, and the stadium was opened on May 13, 1912. In the first decade of the 20th century, Manchester United played their home matches at a stadium with a capacity of 100,000. President Davies began planning for a new stadium with twice that capacity, and a site was chosen near Trafford Park industrial estate. Architect Archibald Leitch was appointed to design the stadium, which began construction in 1910. The stadium opened on May 13, 1912. The stadium at Old Trafford officially opened on February 19th, 1910 with a match between Manchester and Liverpool. The stadium at that time consisted of one covered seating stand and open terraces on the other three sides. Capacity at the time was slightly over 80,000.

The field remained at the same level as the terrace and seated just over 14,000 fans. Few changes were made to the stadium until a roof was built over the United Road terrace in 1934. The field remained at the same level as the terrace and seated just under 14,000 fans.

In 1939, Old Trafford recorded a crowd of 76,962 during an FA Cup semi-final match between Wolves and Grimsby Town.

Due to its proximity to Trafford Park industrial estate, Old Trafford was heavily damaged by German air raids during World War 2. It took eight years to rebuild the stadium, the delays being caused by a lack of post-war resources, and during that time Manchester United played at Maine Road, the ground of rivals Manchester City.

In 1949, Manchester United moved back to a reconstructed, though smaller, Old Trafford. Improvements and expansions were made in subsequent decades, culminating in the complete renovation of the United Road (North) Stand in the 1960s. This stand also housed the first private boxes to be constructed at a British ground.

Old Trafford was one of the playing venues of the 1966 World Cup. In those years, it hosted three group matches, with a capacity that fluctuated around 60,000 people.

The Old Trafford stadium underwent gradual improvements in the 1970s and 1980s, with new and better cover, increased seating areas, and improved executive facilities. In addition, however, the rise of hooliganism also led to the installation of security fences separating the stands from the pitch.

The stadium was originally designed to have an all-seater capacity, but due to protests from fans of the club, this plan was scrapped and the terraces were demolished in order to make way for seats.

The North Stand was originally designed to only hold 18,000 people, but when it opened it had the capacity to hold over 56,000.

The Euro 1996 tournament took place at Old Trafford, with the Czech Republic facing France in a 0-0 draw in the group stages, and a quarter-final and semi-final happening at the ground.

After a few years, second tiers were added to the East and West Stand, increasing their combined capacity to 68,000.

In 2006, the stadium reached its current maximum capacity when stands were built in the upper-tier corners on both sides of the North Stand.

Old Trafford hosted the only European final of its kind in 2003 when the Champions League Final between Milan and Juventus was played at the stadium.

In 2011, the North Stand at the stadium was renamed the Sir Alex Ferguson Stand in honor of the club's long-time manager.

Old Trafford's South Stand remains the only two-tiered stand of the stadium, but expansion possibilities are limited due to the railway line that runs behind the stand. While Man United has indicated that a further expansion to 95,000 seats remains a possibility, no concrete plans exist as of now.

How to get to Old Trafford

Old Trafford is located in the south-west of Manchester, just over 2 miles from Manchester's city centre and just under 3 miles from Manchester Piccadilly Station. If arriving by car from the M60, take junction 7&8 and turn onto Chester Road (A56). Follow Chester Road for about 2 miles and turn left onto Sir Matt Busby Way. The access to the stadium is closed on matchdays.

If using public transport, the best way to reach the stadium is by Metrolink overground metro. From Piccadilly Station it is a fifteen-minute journey to Old Trafford station, which is a five-minute walk away from the stadium.

A special train service is provided from most Manchester city centre stations to Old Trafford Stadium rail station on matchdays.

Address: Sir Matt Busby Way, Old Trafford, Manchester, M16 0RA

Eat, drink, and sleep near Old Trafford

The area is quite safe and there are regular police patrols. Old Trafford is located in a residential area that lacks excitement, with a few hotels nearby. The area is safe and there are regular police patrols. The hotel football Manchester, backed by a number of former United players such as Gary Neville and Ryan Giggs, is right next to the stadium and gets great reviews. The Chester Hotel, Victoria Warehouse Hotel, and Premier Inn are also at short walking distance and somewhat cheaper.

There are various hotels around the quays north of Old Trafford, including chains such as Ibis Budget, Ramada, and Holiday Inn Express. For an overview of all hotels near Old Trafford, please click here. There are naturally also many options in Manchester's city centre, a short Metrolink journey away, though these hotels tend to be a little more expensive.

The few pubs close to the stadium fill up quickly on match days, which puts the atmosphere in good spirits. But if you want to eat, it may be wiser to do so in the centre, specifically at the Deangate Locks and Castlefield area on the Metrolink.

I have been to Old Trafford on a number of occasions. However, I find that the club spends very little on the stadium. The quality of the stadium is quite poor compared to some of their rivals in the Premiership and around Europe. They should think more about the comfort of their fans than the profit share owners make.

Despite their professed love of the fans, the promoters only want money and do not care if people are fans or not. If they offer the stadium tour looking only, it is better to reject it, as taking the whole package is preferable.

But according to the stadium officials, the fans are only really interested in money and aren't really interested in whether or not the fans are longtime fans of the team. If they offer to give the fan a tour of just the stadium, it would be better not to take it; taking the full package including a stadium tour is always better.

There is also a fan zone with food and drink vendors.

The stadium is excellent with nice dugouts and dressing room. The tunnel exit is through tiers, which makes it easy to sit in the manager?s seat (Sir Alex Ferguson). The seats around the tiers are very comfortable. Finally, it is the Best among the Rest.

I loved it my favorite part was the changing rooms having photos with the shirts and sitting on the managers' seats and looking at the amount of seats there are. I have supported United for all my life, and they are truly the best team ever. Thank you for bringing me on this amazing tour!

. The tour of Old Trafford was amazing. I loved it, my favourite part was the changing rooms where we were able to take pictures with the club's shirts and sit on the manager's seats. Additionally, I enjoyed looking at the size of the stadium and how many seats are present. United is my team all my life, and I am grateful for this tour giving me an opportunity to see them in person.

You also get to walk out from the tunnel and sit in Alex Ferguson's seat in the museum. The Red Cafe is nice, and it's good for the price. I have been there four times and I always enjoy myself.

Excellent tours of both the stadium and dugouts, dressing rooms, and museum. You get to walk out from the tunnel and sit in Alex Ferguson's seat. The museum is good, and the Red cafe is nice--it's good for the money. I have been there four times and you will love it!
