Old Trafford to welcome visitors back
Manchester United is pleased to confirm that its Museum & Stadium Tour will reopen to visitors this spring, in line with the UK Government’s easing of lockdown measures.
The popular attractions are due to reopen on 21 May after more than a year of closures and disruption due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Bookings are now being taken for the Museum & Stadium Tour from that date onwards, giving visitors the chance to step inside Old Trafford and experience the history and magic of the Theatre of Dreams.
The Red Café, in the heart of the Sir Alex Ferguson stand, will also be reopening for food and drink from 17 May and fans will be able to visit the club’s renowned Megastore, which is due to reopen its doors on Monday 12 April.
Colette Roche, Chief Operating Officer at Manchester United, said: “We can’t wait to welcome visitors back to Old Trafford and, while we won’t be happy until fans are in the stands again for matches, the reopening of our non-matchday visitor attractions is an important step towards normalisation.”
A range of measures will be in place across the Museum & Stadium Tour, Red Café and Megastore to ensure that visitors can enjoy their experience of Old Trafford while keeping themselves and staff safe.
Manchester United has received certification from The National Tourist Organisations of Great Britain and Northern Ireland confirming that its attractions follow Government and industry COVID-19 guidelines, including measures to maintain cleanliness and aid social distancing.
The Museum & Stadium Tour provides an enthralling experience exploring the triumphs and tragedy of Manchester United’s 143-year history through thousands of unique exhibits in the club Museum, followed by a tour of England’s largest club football stadium. The tour includes the players’ tunnel, the manager’s dug-out and a walk alongside the world-famous pitch. Groups will be limited to 15 people until 21 June to allow for social distancing. All dates are based on the Government’s current plans and are subject to review.
Adult prices are from £25 and juniors/concessions from £18 when booked online, with additional discounts available for education groups. Advanced bookings are strongly recommended and can be made here, or by calling the Contact Centre on +44 161 676 7770.
