Old Trafford StadiumIf you're visiting Manchester, you've probably heard of the Old Trafford Stadium. It's the home of Manchester United and a fantastic place to visit. Do you know what Manchester is famous for? It's music and football. Old Trafford stadium is known as "the theatre of dreams".
The Iconic Architecture
It is one of the largest stadiums in Europe and can seat up to 80,000 people for matches. The stadium has a steep roof which covers half the field and gives it a distinctive shape. This roof is made up of aluminium panels that are held together with steel cables and supports that allow each panel to move independently from one other when necessary. The other half of the field is open, allowing spectators an uninterrupted view of either the goalpost or end line, depending on where they're sitting.
If you're interested in traditional football culture, stop by the Museum of Football. This interactive space features displays of shirts from all over the world that some of today's biggest stars have used.
