Old Trafford is a football stadium in Old Trafford, Greater Manchester, England. It is the home of Manchester United and has a capacity of 75, 765. Old Trafford is the second largest football stadium in England after Wembley and the third largest in the whole U.K.
The ground is known as the Theatre of Dreams, a name given by Bobby Charlton and has been United's home since 1910. In 1940 and 1941 it suffered major bomb damage during the second world war, forcing the club to play at cross-town rivals Manchester City's Maine Road ground. They finally returned to Old Trafford in 1949, when Manchester United gained a 3-0 victory over Bolton Wanderers.
Over the years, Old Trafford has become an all seater stadium and massively increased its capacity, mainly down to the success on the pitch of the Manchester United team.
Outside the Old Trafford Stadium there is a statue of Law, Best and Charlton. This was unveiled in 2008 and pays homage to three of United's greatest ever players.
Old Trafford is also used for the Rugby League 'Super League' final, when the two best teams play off in the end of season finale.Old Trafford, home of Manchester United
