Roads around Old Trafford and the surrounding areas, including the local motorway network, are extremely busy on matchdays.

Please plan your route to the stadium in advance and allow more time than usual for your journey.

A strictly enforced resident parking scheme is in place on the streets around Old Trafford, which is made clear through on-street signage. Please do not park in these areas, as you will be fined and your vehicle could be clamped or removed. Please respect the needs of local residents.

Several roads are closed on matchdays so that pedestrians can travel to Old Trafford safely.



Visitors should not bring a bag larger than 20cm x 15cm x 5cm (8” x 6” x 2”) with them to the match – this equates to a small handbag. All bags will be searched and items larger than the permitted size must be taken to one of the Bag Drop facilities. Manchester United charge £5 to leave an item with them at a Bag Drop. All profits go to the Manchester United Foundation.

The Away Supporters Bag Drop is located between car parks E1 and E2, which are opposite the away turnstiles. Supporters using the Bag Drop facility are advised to do so two hours before kick-off.



There will be enhanced security checks in place for the match. Please arrive early and do not bring any large bags or rucksacks, to avoid delays in entering. A full list of prohibited items can be found on Manchester United’s website HERE.
