Driving (but not going to the Courteeners)

Local roads around the venue, both the A5103 Princess Road and the A34 Upper Brook Street are likley to be impacted by the increase in traffic levels on the day.

Chester Road will be busier than usual on the day, with journey times likely to increase by approximately 48 minutes.

Major roadworks are also taking place on Trafford Road which are leading to increased journey times.

Please consider re-timing your journey or using an alternative route to avoid event traffic.

Driving (to the concert)

Concerts at Emirates Old Trafford have previously caused long delays to road users and we don't want you to miss your favourite artists. If you have to travel by car then consider the advice below:

  • Roads close to the stadium (and around Manchester) will be busier between 11.30am - 5pm, and between 10pm - midnight. Please allow extra time for your journey or consider travelling outside of these hours if you can.
  • There will be no parking available at Manchester United's stadium on the day. There will also be resident permit holder parking on many of the streets close to the stadium. Please don't park in these areas as you risk receiving a fine.


The 255, 256, 263 and x50 bus services run within walking distance of Emirates Old Trafford.

If you are planning on catching the bus to the venue please remember to allow more time for your journey as services are likely to be affected by the additional traffic on the roads.

Typically there are delays of up to 10 minutes during the 4pm-7pm period on a none-matchday. These are likley to increase significantly with events taking place on the day at Emirates OT and Old Trafford.


Emirates Old Trafford is easily accesible on foot from local areas - beat the traffic and take a stroll to and from the concert.

We are encouraging everyone who is within 20 minutes of the stadium to make their journey to the concert on foot.
