Safe standing plans approved for Old Trafford

Safe standing plans approved for Old Trafford

Thursday 30th April 2020

Manchester United's plans to turn part of Old Trafford into safe standing have been approved by Trafford Council.

Around 1,500 seats in the North East Quadrant will now be replaced by rail seating.

The Premier League club plans to have the work completed in time for the next match with fans at Old Trafford - although it's anybody's guess when that will be.

The club have stated that if this small trial is successful, it could be extended to other areas of the stadium.
