Dubbed the Theatre of Dreams, Old Trafford is one of the world’s most iconic football stadiums – and for visitors represents the ultimate footballing day trip.
Home to Manchester United since 1910, Old Trafford has been significantly refurbished over the years in response to the club’s growing popularity and today has a capacity of over 75,000. Regular competitors in the Champions League, tickets for the most high profile matches can be tough to come by – or hard on the wallet, at the very least. However, if you’re happy to attend a less prestigious fixture – or have a big budget to splash out on a Champions League clash – there are several online resources to help you. We’ve selected three of the best below.
A well-regarded sports tickets broker, Ticketgum are our number one pick for finding Man Utd tickets online. They work with a sizeable network of suppliers, and the tickets on sale have usually been advertised by fans who can’t attend specific games and are looking to sell their seat for those matches, meaning they receive tickets prior to reselling them, so there’s almost no risk of fakes.
When we searched for tickets at Old Trafford, we found excellent availability, with the cheapest rate we discovered being £92 for a Champions League group clash with Young Boys in December. However, for more prestigious games, such as against Man City or Liverpool, prices are much steeper. Tickets tend to be shipped two to three days prior to the fixture at the latest. They have an excellent Trustpilot rating too, meaning you can use their service with full confidence. The website also offers a handy collection service, with designated collection points where you can pick up your tickets, as well as hotel delivery – particularly useful when buying tickets at the last minute.
Live Football Tickets
Operating for more than ten years, Livefootballtickets.com are another highly reputable online ticket company. While they charge slightly higher fees thanTicketgum, we found they tend to offer an even larger selection of tickets for certain games. One significant perk is that the website often provides the option of buying 4 tickets with the seats all next to each other – a great policy for large groups coming to a game together. During our searches for Man Utd games for the approaching 2021/22 season, tickets were available for all home fixtures, with prices starting at £55 for less prestigious games such as Arsenal vs West Ham in late September – although league games are usually a lot pricier. The site also offers a “150%” money-back guarantee if, for any reason, you fail to receive your tickets, or are unable to access the stadium with your tickets.
If you’re looking for premium tickets including food and refreshments, Circuit Hospitality should be your first port of call. The Bristol-based company specialise in Premier League hospitality and offer exclusive access to a number of unique Old Trafford experiences for all tastes and budgets. The upscale Evolution restaurant is ideal for entertaining clients, family or friends, while the Champions Club provides fabulous half-way line seating together with a more casual hospitality experience. For those seeking the ultimate VIP experience with maximum privacy, there’s also the new private executive suite, or for an entry level sports bar package the Academy may well be for you. During our search for upcoming games, pricing ranged from around £169 for the most basic package at a lower profile fixture through to £1,029 for a premium experience at Old Trafford against reigning European Champions Chelsea.
