Going to see some sixes?
Getting to Emirates Old Trafford by tram couldn’t be easier.
Board a Altrincham line service to Old Trafford which is directly next to the stadium.
Services will be busier so you may want to consider using two alternative stops which are within walking distance of the stadium. This is particularly true after the match where it may be quicker to work to one of these stops than wait at Old Trafford:
- Trafford Bar A 10-minute walk away. Board an East Didsbury line or Manchester Airport line service for this stop.
- Wharfside A 15-minute walk away. Board a tram on the Trafford Park line.
The Trafford Park will be quieter than other lines. Supporters can park for free at Parkway Park and Ride and board the tram to Wharfside
Supporters should use contactless for payments, it's the safe and easy way to pay. Just remember to touch in and out!
