SAFETY & SECURITY
Working in partnership with Greater Manchester Police, Manchester United have reviewed their security procedures which include enhancing searches of supporters at the turnstiles. This means that searches may take longer and as a result it is likely that queues will also be longer this season, however they will do all they can to keep things moving.
Manchester United do not want any supporter to miss kick-off because of these changes and therefore recommend that all supporters attending the fixture:
All bags will be searched and items larger than the size criteria must be left at one of the 'Bag Drop' facilities, which are located near the ticket office (N1 car park) and in E2 car park. Bringing a bag will further delay entry to the stadium (and will delay departure after the game if supporters have had to use a 'Bag Drop'). If it is necessary for supporters to bring a bag, Manchester United recommend you arrive at least two hours before kick-off.
Significant roadworks have begun on key roads surrounding Old Trafford which will increase journey times to and from the stadium. If supporters are driving, roads will be busier than usual and the roadworks include some temporary changes in the direction of traffic therefore supporters are advised to pay attention to local traffic diversion signs.
All supporters should allow extra time for the journey and aim to arrive at least one hour before kick-off to get through the turnstiles. Whilst the changes will not affect the official car parks, some car parking on public roads will no longer be available.
Metrolink trams are not affected by the road closures – the closest tram stops to the ground are: Old Trafford, Trafford Bar, Exchange Quay, Salford Quays and MediaCityUK. There are frequent tram services from Piccadilly, Victoria and Deansgate train stations and a designated walking route from the city centre.
