Manchester United: Old Trafford Stadium Guide
Football Ticket Pad are proud to boast a selection of the best Man United tickets available in the world, with prime category seating scattered around all four sections of the ground.
If you have been to ‘The Theatre of Dreams’, which was famously branded by club legend, Bobby Charlton then you will know all about the world-famous atmosphere. Whether you have sat in the prestigious South Stand or amongst the red army in the Stratford End you will know why the electric atmosphere at Old Trafford is famous the world over.
The 75,000 seater stadium is steeped in history and is a sell-out every week. The Theatre of Dreams is a ‘must visit’ for any football supporter and we can cater for your needs at Football Ticket Pad with home, away and VIP hospitality tickets at Old Trafford for every game this season so you don’t miss a kick.
Away section seats are housed in the South East section of the ground and they are often quick to sell given the history and stature of Manchester United. Liverpool, Manchester City and Arsenal remain United’s biggest rivals and these are the tickets that every fan wants to get their hands on.
No trip to Old Trafford is complete without a visit to both the Sir Matt Busby and Sir Alex Ferguson statues. Both men are legends of the game and undoubtedly two of the greatest managers in football history.
The Sir Matt Busby Statue fronts the glass facade outside the East Stand on Sir Matt Busby Way. The clock and plaque in remembrance of the Munich Air Disaster are just as poignant and form a special place at The Theatre of Dreams. Sir Alex Ferguson also had his statue erected in 2012 outside the North Stand, which was renamed in honour of the great manager following his 25th anniversary in charge of the club.
There is currently talk of renovating the stadium so it can accommodate over 80,000 football fans - but we’ll keep you updated if there is any more news.
Old Trafford Seating
West Stand / Stretford End: The Stretford End is renowned for its famous atmosphere and United often attack in this direction during the second half of their matches. The Stretford End houses the most passionate supporters and it is here where fans can get a real taste of the passion that comes with supporting a club like Manchester United.
This is the main seating area in the stadium. The West Stand also hosts a number of Executive Boxes and a family seating area in the lower tier adjacent to the players tunnel in the corner of the West and South stands.
Sir Alex Ferguson Stand / North Stand: This stand is perfect for fans with MUFC tickets who want to watch the match amongst some of the most ardent United supporters. The three-tiered stand offers some of the best views in the stadium with an unrestricted view of the playing area.
Longside Upper and Longside Lower tickets offer customers the chance to sit in the Sir Alex Ferguson Stand and this is where Private Boxes and hospitality suites are located - including the Salford Suites and Manchester Suite.
East Stand: The East Stand holds almost 12,000 MUFC ticket holders and is located behind the goal opposite the Stretford End. The East Stand is also commonly known as the Scoreboard End because this is where the scoreboard used to be located.
There is also a large disabled section and part of the away section is hosted in the corner of the upper tier. Football Ticket Pad supplies Shortside Upper, Shortside Lower and Away Section tickets for this part of Old Trafford and fans can enjoy an unrestricted view of the action.
Outside of the stand is a plaque in remembrance of the victims of the Munich disaster, with the Munich Clock at the junction of the East Stand and South Stand. A statue of George Best, Denis Law and Bobby Charlton is also opposite the Sir Matt Busby statue and the famous United trio are known as the club’s ‘Holy Trinity.’
Sir Bobby Charlton Stand / South Stand: Many would argue that United tickets in the South stand offer the best views at the ‘Theatre of Dreams.’ The South Stand was renamed the Sir Bobby Charlton Stand’ in April 2016 in tribute to their record goalscorer and former director.
Despite being the smallest stand in the stadium, the Sir Bobby Charlton stand is full of history and atmosphere. The stand is the only part of Old Trafford that still contains parts of the original infrastructure from 1910 and Football Ticket Pad can offer MUFC supporters the chance to experience the famous atmosphere first-hand with their very own official Manchester United football tickets.
