Old Trafford is the ultimate football stadium. Given the nickname "The Theatre of Dreams" by Sir Bobby Charlton, it has played host to some of the best players, teams and football contests for almost 100 years.
It became Manchester United's home in 1910, but suffered extensive damage when it was bombed during World War II in 1941. The Reds relocated to Manchester City's Maine Road stadium until the rebuilding of Old Trafford was completed in 1949.
The stadium, the largest club ground in Britain, is one of the finest in the world. An incredible 1,705,696 fans watched United play at Old Trafford in season 2005/06. Since work on the expansion of the stadium's North-west and North-east quadrants was completed in summer 2006, Old Trafford's capacity has reached in excess of 76,000, making it one of the most atmospheric and historic stadiums in the world.
