Manchester United is proud to announce that both Old Trafford and our Carrington training ground have officially earned the Ecolab Science Certified™ (ESC) seal.

The comprehensive, science-based ESC program is built on Ecolab’s long-standing experience in the healthcare industry, bringing the same expertise used in hospitals to the places where people eat, stay, shop and play.

In service of nearly two million fans and 3,000 employees and players entering Old Trafford every year, Ecolab’s cleaning solutions have been rigorously deployed across the club from 75,000 seats and 140 hospitality boxes to kitchens, dressing rooms, training facilities and office spaces.

The club is now taking the fan experience to an even more confidently clean and enjoyable level, and the achievement is a testament to our commitment to advancing cleaner, safer, science-based practices for Manchester United fans, employees and players in the places they gather to enjoy the sport they love the most.
