Old Trafford

Manchester United have officially launched plans to expand Old Trafford. 

According to the club’s chief operating officer Collette Roche, there have been initial meetings with architectural and engineering companies.

The plan will also see the club’s Carrington training ground upgraded to accommodate the men’s team, women’s, and the academy.

The 111-year-old Stadium was last expanded in March 2006, with the plans having been announced in 2004.

This means the stadium has never been improved since the Glazier family took over the management of the club in 2005.

“More work has taken place since the last forum on our planning for major work to modernise Old Trafford, with the ultimate aim of improving the fan experience,” said Ms Roche.

Adding; “Initial meetings have taken place with a number of architectural and engineering companies to present their credentials as key partners in the project. These meetings have produced exciting potential ideas, although important to note that we’re still at an early stage and it’s premature to talk about timetables.

“We have an open mind about the best approach and scope of work. The next step will be for us to appoint Master Planners. The intention is to stay at same site, for [a] phased build to allow the team to remain playing at Old Trafford.”

Old Trafford is arguably one of the most iconic stadia in England, alongside the famous Wembley.
