Code of Conduct

What we ask of supporters

The passion, excitement and dedication shown by all supporters at every game played here at Old Trafford cannot be denied or go unnoticed. Supporters are welcomed from across the globe irrespective of age, disability, gender, gender reassignment, marriage and civil partnership, pregnancy and maternity, race, religion or belief, or sexual orientation (Protected Characteristics) and to ensure the experience is enjoyed by all attending, we ask that supporters behave in a way that shows respect to and of their fellow supporters and the Club’s Officials.

We aim to create a safe, positive and friendly atmosphere for all the family and with this in mind we also ask that supporters familiarise themselves with and abide by our Ground Regulations. Behaviour at home and away games is governed by these regulations and the Conditions of Issue relating to the purchase and use of our match tickets. Supporters who behave inappropriately and contravene these regulations and conditions can expect to receive a verbal warning or be ejected from the Stadium and in some cases may be subject to more serious sanctions.

Persistent Standing

Old Trafford is an all-seater stadium as required by our Safety License. All spectators who enter the stadium do so in accordance with our Ground Regulations. In addition we would ask supporters to be respectful that not all supporters want or are able to stand for prolonged periods and therefore supporters who do stand are obstructing the views of their fellow supporters.

All staff at Manchester United are here to help and provide fast, efficient and courteous levels of service, as a valued home or visiting supporter we ask that you behave in a manner that ensures you and others have a positive overall experience with us.

Official Club Sanctions

The Club, working with supporter groups and the Fans’ Forum, has produced an Official Club Sanctions document to provide transparency around the sanctions that Manchester United may impose if a ticket holder commits any offence in breach of the Club’s terms & conditions or Ground Regulations. This guide also sets out details of the appeals processes should any sanction(s) be imposed. The guide will be reviewed and may be updated from time to time, and the current version can be viewed at

As detailed in the guide, if a sanction is imposed, you will have the right to appeal the decision, and the details of how you can do this will be communicated to you. In the event that your appeal is upheld and you remain unhappy with the decision, you will have the opportunity for your appeal to be heard by the Club’s Appeals Panel.

If you are not satisfied with the decision of the Appeals Panel, you may refer your case to the Independent Football Ombudsman (IFO).
