Getting to Old Trafford

With the car parks, its easily accessible to get to Old Trafford by car, but you must have a parking permit and should leave extra time due to increased traffic on matchdays.

The Altrincham tram line directly stops outside the Old Trafford cricket ground and is around a 20-minute walk from the football stadium.

If you’re getting the tram from Manchester Piccadilly station, you’d want to give yourself at least an hour in advance to catch the tram, arrive at the cricket ground and walk to the stadium. You may want additional time for queuing to get through security, the turnstiles and finding your seat.

There are free bike racks located at N2, E2 and W2 car parks.

Fan groups

United have an abundance of official fan groups, but the three main groups are unofficial. The three you should know are the Manchester United Supporters Trust (MUST), the 1958 and The Red Army (TRA).

MUST are an unofficial group which have connections with the club as they’re involved in the fans advisory board, but do not support the Glazers ownership of the club and wish for them to sell.

The 1958 group are an ‘underground’ group which protests the ownership of the club. They often organise and lead these protests.

TRA are a group of match going reds who want to bring the atmosphere back to Old Trafford again. They have their own corner of seats in the stadium, where tickets are mostly exclusively held by members of this group, who will ensure loud singing and proper atmosphere.


The last thing you want is extra stresses around accessibility in the ground. For all information regarding this, use the link below:
