Old Trafford is the largest league ground in England, and probably the most impressive. Away fans are located in one corner of the ground, taking up part of the East and South stands. The view is excellent and 3,000 fans can be accommodated.
The legroom is a bit tight, but nothing to be concerned about, and the atmosphere is always excellent.

Leave the M6 at junction 30 and take the M61 towards Bolton. At the end of the M61, join the M63. Leave the M63 at junction 4 and follow the A5081 towards Manchester. After about two miles you will reach Sir Matt Busby Way on your right for the ground.

Most of the pubs around the ground operate members only schemes and/or are for home fans only. It is a difficult place to get a pint close to the ground, I must admit, and gets no better. The Quadrant is a 10-15 minute walk in the direction of the cricket ground. Beer is served in the ground.

Old Trafford has its own train station (next to the ground) and metrolink station (next to the Lancashire County cricket club on Warwick Road, which leads up to Sir Matt Busby Way. Both are served by Manchester Piccadilly mainline station.
