How to get to Old Trafford

There are lots of ways to get to Old Trafford and we have some useful information and advice before your journey begins.

Significant roadworks have begun on key roads surrounding Old Trafford which will last until 2020, until the Trafford Park Metrolink extension is completed. This will increase your journey time to and from the stadium.

If you are driving, roads will be busier than usual and roads which you currently use on your journey to Old Trafford may be closed or affected. The roadworks include some temporary changes in the direction of traffic, so pay attention to local traffic diversion signs when you see them.

You should allow extra time for your journey and aim to arrive one hour before kick-off to get through the turnstiles.

Whilst the changes will not affect the club’s official car parks, some car parking on public roads will no longer be available.

If you travel by bus, some buses will take a slightly different route to usual, but bus stops in the vicinity of the stadium will remain unchanged.

Metrolink trams are not affected by the road closures and may be a good alternative for your journey.

There are frequent tram services from Piccadilly, Victoria and Deansgate train stations and a designated walking route from the city centre.

The roadworks may change as works progress so you should keep yourself up-to-date before every visit.
