Old Trafford and Olympic Closing Ceremony Tickets

Old Trafford is a football stadium in Old Trafford, Greater Manchester, England which is the home of Manchester United. With a capacity of 75,811, Old Trafford is the second-largest football stadium in England after Wembley, the third largest in the United Kingdom and the eleventh-largest in Europe. The stadium is approximately half a mile from Old Trafford Cricket Ground and the adjacent tram station.
The ground, nicknamed the Theatre of Dreams by Bobby Charlton, has been United's home since 1910, except for 1941 to 1949. Following the bombing of the stadium during the Second World War, the club shared Maine Road with Manchester City. The ground underwent several expansions in the 1990s and 2000s, including the addition of extra tiers to the North, West and East stands. The stadium's record attendance is 76,962 for the 1939 FA Cup semi final between Wolverhampton Wanderers and Grimsby Town.
The ground has frequently hosted FA Cup semi-final matches as a neutral venue and several England international fixtures while the new Wembley Stadium was under construction. It also hosted matches at the1966 FIFA World Cup and UEFA Euro 1996, as well as the 2003 UEFA Champions League Final. Aside from football related uses, Old Trafford has hosted rugby league's Super League Grand Final since the league's adoption of playoffs in 1998 and the final of the 2000 Rugby League World Cup.

Adjacent to the South Stand of the stadium is Manchester United Football Ground railway station. The station is between the Deans Gate and Trafford Park stations on the Southern Route of Northern Rail's Liverpool to Manchester line, and is only open on match days. The ground is also serviced by both the Altrincham and Eccles lines of the Manchester Metro link network, with the nearest stops being Exchange Quay at nearby Salford Quays, and Old Trafford, which it shares with the Old Trafford Cricket Ground. Both stops are a five minute walk from the football ground.
Buses 255 and 256, which are run by Stagecoach Manchester and 263, which is run by Arriva North West run from Piccadilly Gardens in Manchester to Chester Road, stopping near Sir Matt Busby Way, while Stagecoach's 250 and X50 services stop outside Old Trafford on Wharf side Way. There are also additional match buses on the 256 service, which run between Old Trafford and Manchester city centre. Other services that serve Old Trafford are Arriva's 69 service (Stratford Eccles) which stops on Chester Road plus First Manchester service 53 (Cheetham Pendleton) and Stagecoach's 84 service (Withington Hospital Manchester), which stop at nearby Trafford Bar Metro link station.
