The ground has been United's permanent home since 1910, bar an eight year absence from 1941 to 1949 following the bombing of the stadium in the Second World War, during which the club ground-shared with Manchester City at Maine Road.

Newest Review: ... in the Stretford End before it became compulsory to have all-seater stadiums, but that's not what I'm here to review anyway. What I can talk about, though, is how the stadium and surround is now. If you're just visiting Old Trafford for the grounds and museum tour, you will first visit the museum itself which was opened by the legendary Brazilian ace, Pelé in 1998. The museum houses various ... more

Old Trafford, the Theatre of Dreams. First opened in 1910 and found on Sir Matt Busby Way (formerly Warwick Road), this is a near 76,000 capacity all-seater stadium used by Premier League giants, Manchester United. Having been to Old Trafford numerous times since the early 1980s, I've seen the stadium go through various changes ranging from the eradication of standing areas to the stadium having capacity increases on all sides of the ground and corners.

What I can talk about, ... Read the complete review

As a Manchester united fan living in Scotland I rarely get the chance to visit Old Trafford (otherwise known as the theatre of dreams) these days and recently when the chance arose to go and watch them play Celtic in the champion's league, I jumped at it.

I visited Old Trafford last week when I have been to Manchester. I firstly visited the Museum, which is located in the stadium. It is just beside the Manchester supporters' famous café. When you first get in the museum (it is not big at all), you see the model of the stadium. In the next room, you'll see all the cups Manchester won. Especially last premiership cup was very elegant. Also there is a room in the museum, which you can see the 80-90 year old shoes, which were used by famous players decades ago. Also you can watch the old matches. The thing I liked most in the museum was a device, which you can be commentator and tell the match. Firstly the real ... Read the complete review
