By Train

Nearest Station
Old Trafford - right by the ground. Trains run from Piccadilly/Oxford Road stations.

Metrolink - Old Trafford - also runs from Piccadilly. A popular route for fans and it gets very busy.

There's another branch of the Metrolink which comes from Eccles and this is much quieter. Get off at Pomona for a short walk to the ground, while on the return journey get on at Exchange Quay.

Check train times and tickets at The Trainline. For more information, call National Rail Enquiries on 08457 48 49 50.

Where to Eat?

You must check out the "curry mile" in Wilmslow Rd, Rushholm. It has more Indian restaurants in one mile than anywhere else in the country.

There are food outlets in Salford Quays, a fish and chip shop on the corner of Sir Matt Busby Way and the usual burger vans around the ground.

Where to Drink?

Pubs near the stadium don't let in away fans with colours, so you're better off grabbing a pint in the city centre or along one of the Metrolink stops. Beer is served within the ground.

What's their ground like?

Old Trafford needs no introduction - the Theatre of Dreams simply the biggest and arguably best ground in the country. In recent years, three sides of the stadium have had an extra tier added to them bringing the capacity up to more than 76,000.

The three-tiered Sir Alex Ferguson Stand, which towers over the older single deck Main Stand opposite, has the largest capacity in the country.

Palace fans will be seated in the back of the south eastern corner of the ground. View and facilities are very good. The allocation is 3,000.

What do they sing?

"United, United, United!" and "Ooh ah, Cantona!"

Songs to sing back

"See you on the motorway, see you on the motorway!" and "We support our local team, we support our local team!"

Who do they hate?

Manchester City, Liverpool and Leeds.
