What's the minimum age for a fan attending a game alone?

Manchester United recognises its responsibility to safeguard the welfare of all children visiting Old Trafford and has a commitment to practice which protects them. As part of this commitment we have reviewed the minimum age of which a child can attend a game without being accompanied by another individual. This review has involved consultation with other Premier League clubs, Trafford Local Authority and stakeholders across Manchester United.

From the 2020/21 season we are introducing an increase to this age to age 14. Any child under age 14 must be accompanied by an individual age 16 or over. All children who are aged 14 on or before 31st August 2020 will be able to apply for junior tickets without an accompanying adult.

There will be exemptions for any children who currently have season tickets and are age 12 or 13 to renew their tickets without being impacted by the changes.

Can I travel by bicycle or motorbike to Old Trafford?

If you travel to Old Trafford by bicycle, we offer free cycle racks on the following car parks: N2 (Sir Alex Ferguson Stand), E2 (East Stand) and W2 (West Stand). Please note you will need to use your own secure bike lock. Bicycles must not be secured in any other areas across the Old Trafford stadium site at any time. Bicycles secured outside of authorised cycle racks will be promptly removed for security reasons, which may result in damage for which the club will not be held liable.
 
For those supporters who wish to travel to home matches by motorbike, we do ask you to purchase a standard car park space, either in advance or on the day of the game.  Motorcycle parking is available on car park N3 and N4 (subject to availability) and costs the same price as parking a vehicle, currently £10.00.  For non-match days motorcycle parking is available and free to visitors of the Museum & Tour and Megastore on car park N2.
