Sir Matt Busby Way is a ‘no through’ road.
CAR PARKING There are plenty of individual car parks around the ground that cost around £10. The most common recommendation is the Old Trafford Cricket Ground but, like all games, try and get there as early as possible to secure a space.
Other options include Salford Quays Lowry Mall, which is roughly a 10-minute walk away from the stadium. Cost is approximately £3.50. Upon leaving, the road will take you straight onto the M601 which joins up with the M62/M6.
BY RAIL Take a Metrolink or train from Manchester Piccadilly mainline station - Old Trafford has both its own railway station next to the ground and a Metrolink station which is located next to Lancashire County Cricket Club on Warwick Road and leads up to Sir Matt Busby Way. Normally the railway station is less busy than the Metrolink. Alternatively, you can get a bus from Piccadilly Gardens.
BY BUS Supporters travelling by bus numbers 252-257 inclusive, plus 17, 114 and 236 run from Manchester Piccadilly to Old Trafford.

Turnstiles are open from two hours before kick-off and supporters are advised to arrive to the stadium as early due to traffic congestion.
Manchester United adopts a strict segregation policy and any Everton supporters who have purchased tickets for the home sections may be ejected from the Stadium.
FOOD AND DRINK Tea-bars will be open inside the Stadium. Alcohol will be available on the day of the game, but this decision will be monitored and can be service can be stopped at any point. It should be noted that beer is not permitted at seats or outside of designated areas.
IMPORTANT POLICE INFORMATION The following measures are in place at Old Trafford: • Alcohol is not permitted on the street in Manchester city centre or Trafford and this will be enforced around the stadium for home and away fans. • There are no pubs around Old Trafford which cater for visiting supporters. • Everton fans will be able to purchase a drink in the ground – a maximum of two alcoholic drinks per visit to the bar per person. Turnstiles open at 10am. • All drinks (including soft drinks) will be decanted and these arrangements are the same for home fans situated near to the segregation line.
Everton Football Club does not condone the use of pyrotechnics whatsoever those found using them either home or away will be subject of action by the Club and the Police. Being convicted of using them could also result in a jail sentence that is how seriously the matter is being treated by courts across the country. As a Club we would also impose an indefinite ban on anyone caught using pyrotechnics. Apart from the risk of a ban or conviction the devices have a serious effect on others, particularly those with breathing difficulties and the disabled in wheelchairs who cannot easily get away from the smoke.
During the season 2015/16, we have noticed an increase of persistent group “bouncing”, culminating in beer being thrown in the air. This has happened on both home and away concourses and would stress has only involved a very small minority of fans.
This has resulted in both the Club and the Police receiving complaints from supporters who have become soaked in beer. As we are sure you will agree this is anti-social behaviour and people should not have to put up with this. As a consequence, both the Club, Merseyside Police and supporter’s groups have discussed how this should be addressed.
Firstly, both the Club and the Police want to make it clear that we want ALL our supporters to enjoy their day and we understand that this may include singing and an element of “bouncing” as a group.
However, a decision has been made that should home or away fans participate in the throwing of alcohol in any area of the stadium, they will be dealt with by Match Day Stewards with the full support of Merseyside Police Officers. This could culminate with an ejection from the ground or potentially an arrest, dependent on the specific circumstances. This season, you will see more stewards and Police Officers on the concourse, who will provide early advice should a situation look like it is getting out of control.
Please continue to enjoy the match but we ask that you also consider other supporters and how they will be affected by your behavior and we ask for your support in this.
