Wolves vs Man United | Supporter guide

Wolves face their second trip to Old Trafford in a month on Saturday, but after their Emirates FA Cup battle in January, Nuno Espirito Santo’s are back to take on Manchester United in the Premier League.

A sold-out allocation of more than 3,000 supporters are expected to make the journey from the Black Country to Manchester to cheer on their team in the 5.30pm kick-off.

On Saturday afternoon, Manchester United will be holding a service to commemorate the anniversary of the Munich air disaster, with the match being the Red Devil’s closest home game to 6th February which marks the 62nd year since the tragedy.

The service will take place between 3.30pm to 4pm outside the Munich clock, which is situated next to the away turnstiles. All Wolves supporters are welcome to join in the service, but those who are in the area, or entering the turnstiles, at this time but not attending are asked to respect the service and refrain from chanting until it has finished.

Matchday information

Visiting supporters will be located in the south east corner of Old Trafford, which will be open two hours before kick-off.

Supporters travelling to Manchester by car or taxi are advised to arrive early, as traffic around Old Trafford becomes very congested nearer to kick-off time. Supporters who wish to book parking can do so by calling 0161 868 8009.

Significant roadworks have begun on key roads surrounding Old Trafford which will last until 2020, until the Trafford Park Metrolink extension is completed. The roadworks include some temporary changes in the direction of traffic. Supporters should allow extra time for your journey and aim to arrive one hour before kick-off to get through the turnstiles.

Metrolink trams are not affected by the road closures and may be a good alternative for journeys. The closest tram stops to the ground are: Old Trafford, Trafford Bar, Exchange Quay, Salford Quays, and MediaCityUK.

The Metrolink service operates a frequent service from Manchester City Centre (including Victoria & Piccadilly Stations) to Old Trafford station which is a ten-minute walk from the stadium. On a matchday, Northern Railway operate a service from City Centre stations direct to Old Trafford Stadium where the station is located along the South Stand.

Extensive searches will take place at turnstiles, while the size of bags allowed into Old Trafford has also been restricted this season, with bags larger than 20cm x 15cm x 5cm not allowed into the stadium.
