A guide to Old Trafford Football Stadium


Old Trafford might be better known as the Theatre Of Dreams, but it has been more synonymous with nightmares in recent years – if you call yourself a Red. That goes for the quality of football on display, as well as some parts of the stadium itself. Indeed, rumours abound that there is a much-needed reconstruction on the horizon.

Whatever happens, this special stadium remains the most iconic arena in the Premier League (we recommend you visit it before the inevitable facelift, and potential name change partnership deal) and still plays host to the biggest team in the league. What’s more, with its stands close to the pitch, and a die-hard fanbase, the atmosphere here is among the best in England.

A brief history

Designed by the architect Archibald Leitch, Old Trafford football stadium was first opened on 19 February 1910 with a capacity of 80,000.

Because of its size, it was used in WWII as a military depot and, after being bombed (not the first time Old Trafford would be breached by a German attack, ahem) was reconstructed and opened again on 24 August 1949.

After various modifications, and the introduction of seating, the stadium’s capacity reached 44,000 in 1992. After a series of expansions, today’s capacity is 75,454.

Old Trafford Guide - History

Quick Facts

A traditional, four-sided structure, Old Trafford is the second largest stadium in England, after Wembley, and the 7th biggest in Europe. Connected to the stadium is a museum (opened by Pele in 1998), where you can witness Manchester United’s successes first hand (if you are so inclined – the blue half of Manchester, feel free to head straight to the pub).

The best views of the on-field action can be found in the South stand, whereas if you want atmosphere, head West (aka the famous Stretford End). When the stadium was first built, the original project was £30,000 over budget, resulting in the nickname Moneybags United. Some things never change…

Why go?

This was not nicknamed The Theatre Of Dreams by Sir Bobby Charlton for no reason. Despite tough times of late, this stadium holds 42 trophies, including the unique Champions League, FA Cup and Premier League Treble overseen by a ‘Sir Alex Ferguson’ in 1999. 

The famous Stretford End, where the diehard Reds sit, is one of the best places in English football for atmosphere and can be deafening when it gets going. Even through these ‘tough’ times for a United fan, the atmosphere is always good.

Man Utd - 500 Club

What are the facilities like?

As alluded to, Old Trafford is one of the more traditional Stadiums in the Premier League. This comes with the downsides of some facilities being a bit behind other venues, but the upside of a proper traditional football experience, which many people crave. Either way, it’s still a great place to visit.

With bars and food venues in each of the four stands, there are countless places to refuel before, during and after watching the game. At the East stand is the club’s Megastore – ideal if you’re in the mood to buy an official Manchester United shirt (or MU coffee machine – yes, this exists). If you prefer a side order of history with your food, head to level 3 of the Sir Alex Ferguson stand where you will find the Red Café. Each of the stands has at least two tiers, except for the Bobby Charlton stand.

What are the premium tickets, VIP and Hospitality options?

As you might expect for a club of this magnitude, there are plenty of high-end ticketing options, boxes and suites at Old Trafford. For example, The Champions Club is a fantastic match-day experience. Expect a 3-course dinner, a complimentary bar and unparalleled views of the action on the pitch. 

Alternatively, try the Trinity Club in the East Stand, with complimentary bowl food and bar in a brand new facility. There is also the 500 club – with a capacity of 200 – which pays tribute to United’s stalwarts (some of whom you may just meet if you decide to experience match-day here). This is a more informal hospitality package but is an ideal location for soaking up the legendary pre-match Old Trafford atmosphere. Other packages of this ilk include the ‘Kit Room’ and ‘Academy’ Lounge, which offer a similar environment and style.

These are just a few of the examples of around 10 different match-day packages available at Old Trafford. If you’ve had hospitality at Man Utd games before, then you might know what suits you best. If not, Events Hospitality are here to help and giving you guidance on the most suitable package is all part of the service.

Old Trafford guide - how to get to

How to get to Old Trafford?

If you’re travelling by car – whether that be your own vehicle or a taxi – the postcode is M16 0RA. You can book official car parking on the Manchester United website. Alternatively, Trafford council offers a pay-to-park facility within the Trafford Village area of Trafford Park. You can also use public transport, with the handily named Old Trafford station being your best and closest bet, if you’re using the Metro link. From Piccadilly, the main station in Manchester, it’s a 20-minute tram ride. Then, it’s a 5-minute walk.

What is there to do in the area around Old Trafford?

If you want to discuss the game over a pint there are plenty of fan friendly pubs and bars in the area – whether that be The Quadrant, The Bishop Blaize or, if you want to really stay on brand, Gary Neville’s Hotel Football. If a bit of culture is more your thing – Salford has everything from The Lowry, The Imperial War Museum and The Quays. If you jump in a cab for ten minutes, you could venture away from the red section of Greater Manchester and more into the city centre. Ancoats is one of the most exciting, up-and-coming areas in Manchester so worth a look for food and drink.

How can I get tickets to Manchester United games?

If you want to watch the Red Devils in the flesh, you must sign up to be a member and apply for tickets.

As you might expect for a club of United’s size, tickets sell quickly, and you may not wish to enter what can feel like a pot-luck raffle. With that in mind, at Events Hospitality, we have a range of premium tickets, as well as a variety of hospitality and private box packages that we can organise fuss-free. Contact us on [email protected] for the latest games and packages available.

Best event at Old Trafford?

Every game feels like a big one at The Theatre Of Dreams, but nothing compares to a match against Manchester United’s biggest rivals Liverpool. These have been one-sided affairs of late, but surely it can’t be long before United start holding their own? When they do, you won’t want to miss it.

Most niche event?

United keeping a clean sheet at home…? Or perhaps that David Beckham free-kick against Greece in 2001. Jokes aside – probably the 1993 boxing match between, er, Chris Eubank and Nigel Benn.

Type of events

Football and concerts, with potentially more sports to come at a later date.

A final insider tip

If you’re heading to a game and you’re not from Manchester, consider staying over the night before. The Ibis is a good budget option on Salford Quays – it’s a ten-minute walk to the ground and allows you to soak up the atmosphere pre and post-match without having to beat the crowds. 

If you have any questions or would like to understand the best options for tickets at Old Trafford, please send us an email and we would be happy to help.

What are the Different Levels of Hospitality you can get at Old Trafford?

No amount of leaky roofs can take away from the fact that Old Trafford is one of the most illustrious stadiums in the world. You cannot escape the magnitude of history there – from the Busby Babes to the Class of ‘92. Just try not to talk about Marouane Fellaini or Eric Djemba-Djemba too much while you are there.

Despite the ‘crisis around every corner’ feeling at Manchester United, they are still a force to be reckoned with. Old Trafford is still a difficult place to go for any team – largely because you can never be quite sure which United are going to turn up. They must be one of the most unpredictable teams in the Premier League.

The team is, as always, littered with superstars of world football. Bruno Fernandes, Marcus Rashford, Christian Eriksen, Casemiro – these are players that would get into most sides in the world, and they are a huge factor why Old Trafford remains one of the most popular stadiums in the country to watch Premier League football.

Getting tickets is often easier said than done, of course – but that’s where a hospitality package can help. They represent a great way to, not just guarantee your tickets for a match at Old Trafford, but also experience something a bit extra. Some real quality. Manchester United were way ahead of the rest of the pack when it came to offering hospitality, and they have a range of different options today. Let’s take a look at our favourites.


Kit Room

Kit RoomThere are quite a few different suites at Old Trafford, all offering something different, but all focused on a relaxed pre- and post-match atmosphere. A nice balance between a true fan experience and a little bit of luxury.

The Kit Room is our pick of the bunch. Celebrating the wide array of kits that Manchester United have worn over the years, this smart, modern suite is the perfect place to enjoy a couple of drinks, some food and incredible views of this iconic football stadium, as well as Media City and the Salford Quays. The full package includes:

  • Padded seating in the North West of the stadium – near the Stretford End
  • Access to the incredible Kit Room 3 hours before kick off and an hour after the final whistle
  • A relaxed meal
  • Spacious cash bar
  • Match programme
  • Exclusive executive entrance


Champions Club

Champions Club 2 The name Manchester United is synonymous with the word ‘Champions’. So how about a hospitality package worthy of the name?

This is for an experience that is that little bit special – which you will notice immediately when you are greeted with a Champagne Reception on arrival. Everything about this package is top-notch – the food, the drinks, the suite – but our favourite thing is the fact that you get some of the best seats in the house from which to watch the match. Right in the middle tier, near the halfway line. Perfect.

This is what you get with the Champions Club package:

  • Champagne reception
  • A private table for your meal
  • Three course a la carte meal
  • Complimentary bar
  • A visit from a Club legend (subject to availability)
  • VIP Executive padded seats near the half-way line
