How do I receive my complimentary car parking pass?

If you have already requested a car park pass at time of booking, this will arrive with your tickets. For collections, you will be able to park temporarily until you receive your package.
To request a car park pass, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 0161 868 8000 (option 2, 3, 1) with your booking details.
Complimentary car parking is included in the Lancashire Package. On arrival collect a parking ticket at the entrance barriers and a member of the welcome team will exchange it for a ticket to exit the car park. As this is a barrier system, you do not need a car park pass in advance.

How can I plan my visit?
Old Trafford stadium is conveniently situated just three miles from the centre of Manchester and benefits from excellent transport links to and from the ground. Manchester Airport is only a 20 minute taxi ride away and also operates frequent trams and trains to the city centre. Liverpool's John Lennon Airport also provides train or coach connections to Manchester, plus you can always consider a train from London stations.
Trams to Old Trafford run throughout the day from both Piccadilly and Victoria stations in Manchester's city centre. Nearby tram stops are approximately a ten minute walk to the stadium. More information can be found on the Metrolink website. There is also a dedicated train service on matchdays from city centre stations to Old Trafford stadium, where the station is located alongside the Sir Bobby Charlton Stand. Consult National Rail Enquiries for the latest train times.
How do I make the most of my trip?
When planning your trip, make the most of what Old Trafford has to offer and book a Museum & Stadium Tour, either the day before, or the day after the game. (Please note that the Museum is closed on a matchday). See the players' dressing rooms, walk through the famous players' tunnel, and take your seat in the Manager's dugout. For all ages, the Museum & Stadium Tour takes approximately two hours.
Open seven days a week, the Manchester United Red Café is the perfect place to relax after your Museum and Stadium Tour experience. With a wide range of delicious menu options and a vibrant atmosphere it's a great place to reflect on your visit to the Theatre of Dreams. (Please note that the Red Café is closed on a matchday)
