Old Trafford, The Theatre of Dreams, and the home of the most popular and successful football teams in the world – Manchester United. The Red Devils, managed by Sir Alex Ferguson have lived at Old Trafford since it was built in 1910, with the exception of an eight-year absence from 1941 to 1949, following the bombing of the stadium in the Second World War.
Old Trafford is an all-seater stadium with room for 75,957 spectators. There are also numerous VIP and season hospitality boxes, executive boxes, restaurants and hospitality areas. Surrounding the Old Trafford pitch are four covered all-seater stands known as the North, East, South and West Stands.
The dugout is in the centre of the South Stand. It is raised above pitch level to give the manager and his coaches a better view of the game. The visitors’ dugout is the other side of the old tunnel, The Munich Tunnel, which is the only remaining part of the original stadium.
The current players’ tunnel is in the South West corner. It is also used to bring in the police and emergency services. The tunnel leads directly to the players’ dressing rooms, the players’ lounge and the television interview area.
There is also a Football Museum highlighting «The Greatest Football Story Ever Told». Beginning more than one hundred years ago, it tells the story of Manchester United’s total English and European football dominance. You even get to tour the stadium and see the team through the eyes of some of the greats such as Sir Matt Busby and Sir Alex Ferguson.
Such is the devotion of the Manchester United fans that there is a soccer mega store totally devoted to the team’s paraphernalia. At 17,000 square feet, it has 800 different items and 39 tills. Over 20,000 people visit it on a match day!
Should you have a junior Rooney or Beckham then Old Trafford also holds soccer schools for the chosen few as well as training for its second and junior teams.
Everything about Old Trafford and Manchester United is world class and this includes their hospitality. Fine food and drinks and attention to detail are evident everywhere, including the world famous Red Café. Hospitality can be booked by the season – and many large companies have their own Executive Boxes at Old Trafford, or by the match. For a truly awe inspiring time it is difficult to beat visiting The Old Trafford
