Commuters urged to consider travel options ahead of Champions League clash

16 November 2018
Old Trafford

Manchester United take on BSC Young Boys in a Champions League game, which kicks off at 8pm at Old Trafford on Tuesday 27 November.

It's expected to see a sell-out crowd of 75,000 in attendance and as such roads and public transport are expected to be much busier than usual.

Road closures will be in place as fans head to the game and with the MSIRR/Regent Road roadworks also underway, highways in and around Old Trafford and the surrounding areas are expected to be very busy in the build up to kick-off.

The most significant impacts are expected on the roads between 4pm and 7pm.

If you're a driver, please consider using alternative modes including trams, trains and buses, travelling earlier or later in the day – or working from home if at all possible. In all cases, do allow plenty of extra time for journeys.

Additional Park and Rides are available on 27 November if you're heading to the match. Shuttle buses to Old Trafford will run from sites at EventCity and AJ Bell Stadium, while additional buses will also operate from the A580 East Lancs Road site.
