The Sir Alex Ferguson statue will be unveiled at Old Trafford on Friday 23 November at 2pm GMT and a fan viewing area is to be set up for anyone who wishes to watch the unveiling ceremony take place.
Location: The unveiling ceremony will take place outside the Sir Alex Ferguson Stand – the statue itself will be placed on a canopy above the main entrance to this stand (Tour/Museum entrance). The fan viewing area will be set up in the car park adjacent to this area (N1). This area will not be under cover so please bring suitable clothing in case of inclement weather.
Schedule: The unveiling ceremony will commence at 2pm and will last approximately 30 minutes. A short time after the ceremony ends, fans will be invited to view the new Sir Alex Ferguson-themed installations and artwork in the lower concourse (approximately 3:30pm).
Parking: Parking will be available in W2 outside the ticket office.
Food and drink: Catering outlets will be open in the fan viewing area. The Red Café will also be open all day.
Museum and Tour: The museum is open from 9.30am until 5pm and tours will operate from 9.40am until 4.30pm. Due to the unveiling event, the normal museum and tour entrance will not be in use. There will be signage and staff in place to direct visitors through the temporary entrance at NX16. There will be some slight disruption to the tour route as we are not able to use the concourse in the Sir Alex Ferguson Stand due to this event.
Megastore: The Megastore will be open as usual on this day. For more on the statue, click here.
