Roads around Old Trafford and the surrounding areas – including the local motorway network – are extremely busy on match days. Please plan your route to the stadium in advance and allow more time than usual for your journey. If you are travelling to the stadium by car on matchday, you can use the post code M16 0RA, and on a non matchday, use M16 0SZ. To book Official Car Parking, visit www.manutd.com/tickets.
Non Matchday: From 12th April 2021, visitors to the stadium should use car park E2 only, which can be accessed from Wharfside Way West. Accessible parking spaces are available on this car park.
Matchday: Access to car parks E1 & E2 can only be gained via Wharfside Way with the relevant permits. Anyone attempting to access via Chester Road will be directed around the traffic system which will cause further delays. Where acting upon Police instructions, supporters parking on E1 & E2 may be held back after the game and we apologise for any such delays.
