Manchester United host Young Boys at Old Trafford from 8pm on Wednesday 8 December October.

If you're travelling to watch the fixture our key advice is:

  • Expect the roads around the ground to be busy from 5pm as people drive home from work and fans travel to the stadium. If you have to drive to the game, allow additional time for your journey and remember roadworks are taking place on Trafford Road.

There are a number of stops within easy walking distance of the ground:

Supporters can park for free at Parkway Park and Ride and board the tram to Wharfside - which is only a five-minute walk to the stadium. There are also several other free Park and Rides available - Click here for more options

Supporters should use contactless for payments, it's a quick and easy way to pay. Just remember to touch in and out!

Make a day of it at The Trafford Centre

You can also make a day of it with a trip to The Trafford Centre before the match where you can do a spot of shopping or grab something to eat!

You can visit the centre and catch the Trafford Park Line to the ground, alighting at Wharfside.

Driving

Traffic on the roads around the Trafford area is expected to be busy from around 5pm. Trafford Road and Chester Road are expected to have significantly increased journey times.

In addition, major roadworks are also taking place on Trafford Road which are leading to increased journey times.

If you are travelling to the official car parks then the quickest route is via M60 Junction 9, Parkway and Wharfside Way.

Please be aware that services will be busier than normal from 6pm until 8pm before the game and again after the game from 10pm until 11pm.

Journey times could also be impacted due to the increased levels of traffic, so be sure to plan ahead and allow extra time for your travel.
