Manchester United explore stadium options

Manchester United explore stadium options

Saturday 19th March 2022

Man Utd are exploring their options as the club looks to improve the experience for fans attending matches.

One of the options on the table is a complete rebuild of the stadium which would include Man Utd finding another ground to play at whilst Old Trafford is knocked down and rebuilt. The new stadium would likely be around 90,000 capacity, making it level with Wembley Stadium as the second biggest ground in Europe.

This is likely to be the clubs least preferred option as it would mean playing away from Old Trafford for a number of years. Close rivalry makes groundsharing at either the Etihad or Anfield unlikely.

Another option being explored is a rebuild of the Sir Bobby Charlton South Stand. This had previously been downplayed due to the railway line which runs behind the stand. However, improvements in building materials could now make this a viable alternative.

A rebuilt South Stand would mean reduced capacity at matches whilst the work is being undertaken. The overall capacity of Old Trafford would likely rise to over 80,000 if this option is given the green light.
