Getting to Emirates Old Trafford by tram couldn’t be easier.

Trams on the Altrincham line operate to Old Trafford which is directly next to the stadium.

However, with so many people going to the match, services will be very busy and you may want to walk to another stop before or after the fixture to avoid the crowds.

There are several stops within a short walking distance of the venue.
