Old Trafford Football Stadium Keeps Fans of Manchester Truly United
Known as The Theatre of Dreams, Old Trafford Football Stadium can be more of a nightmare venue for supporters of visiting clubs. In the good natured firing line, fans particularly wish defeat by a thousand goals on neighbours, Manchester City and Liverpool. Due to the ever-increasing success and popularity of the resident Manchester United team, a number of expansion projects have resulted in a viewing capacity of around 75,000; making Old Trafford the largest in the UK, apart from Wembley Stadium. For home supporters, their visit is only a little short of being a pilgrimage to home turf, where Manchester United will always win the day.
Old Trafford Football Stadium is a Top Visitor Attraction
This is much more than just a football ground. The atmosphere of positivity and success ensures that Old Trafford is also a natural choice as a venue for conferences, exhibitions, and social occasions such as children’s parties, dinners, and stag and hen dos.
Football though, is the main focus. It’s big business too with the Executive Club offering a superb setting for businesses to entertain and impress. It is the supporters though who feature as the bread and butter element of the club’s success and organised tours enable them to see behind the scenes and receive a certificated memento of the occasion.
A Visit to Old Trafford is a Transport of Delight
Not all Manchester United fans are Mancunians; they live in all areas of the UK and seize every opportunity to visit an Old Trafford game. For the London clan, it’s a train journey of two hours or more from Euston Station to Manchester Piccadilly. Then, on match days, there’s a train service to Old Trafford, or they can take the MetroLink tram. If they’ve won the lottery, they can fly from Heathrow to Manchester Airport in about an hour, and then access Old Trafford by train, tram, or taxi.
Another lottery is the one surrounding the dream of free parking at Old Trafford. Participants can take the chance by entering a ballot via their website; but there’s probably a much better chance of Manchester United winning the actual game.
