Manchester United is one of the most popular football clubs in the world and their famous red and white colours proudly worn by fans across the planet. Dating back to 1898, the club has a long history but first came to prominence in the post war period under the late Matt Busby.
The team is led by manager Sir Alex Ferguson and has been extremely successful in the Premier League, winning the coveted title eleven times since its formation in 1992-93. The result is one of the richest clubs in the world with revenue estimated at around £300 million in 2009.
Even though players like David Beckham, Carlos Tevez, Cristiano Ronaldo and Roy Keane are no longer in the team, Manchester United is as popular as ever and demand for tickets remains high thanks their consistent performance in the English Premier League.
Manchester United tickets are available to members on a first come first served basis as soon as they are available. In addition to buying tickets direct from the club you’ll also find tickets available from official agents for the club. You should avoid unofficial vendors, as it is currently a criminal act to sell football tickets for English or Welsh teams, or for competitions involving such teams.
Once you do have your tickets you’ll find the atmosphere in the stadium is absolutely electric when Manchester United are playing at their best – you’ll find your pulse really racing. Old Trafford currently has capacity for 76,000 spectators and thanks to the extensive changes that have taken place over the last few years it is easily comparable the stadium of any other team of the same stature – it really is the Theatre of Dreams.
Current plans may see that capacity increased to 95,000 if the south stand development takes place to match the north stand, but it is currently a residential zone. The increase in capacity should benefit anyone looking to purchase tickets for matches at Old Trafford and experience the thrill of seeing Manchester United Live.
