    Hopefully no fans lose out then. I was tempted to do the Belgrade day trip as I heard it was basically a guaranteed ticket. Glad I didn't now!

    The automated texts never work for me too so it's not just your Uncle and Dad having that issue. I've called in recent years and made sure they have correct number etc but it just doesn't work very well.

    New system of returns going online a few days sounds much better to me.

    It’ll be on the Wednesday regardless , there’s a full listing of games on the Tuesday and Wednesday , because we play Wednesday we won’t be playing Tuesday so it’s 99.9% Wednesday.

    Apparently considerably more applied than the number of tickets available including some after the first club ballot results. The club will try to offer everyone who still wants a ticket with independent travel and if demand exceeds supply, then allocation will be based on credits

    Thank you for your help. We will wait for official announcement althought it is easier to plan when we have this info. We tried to book Stadium Tour for 3rd December but it is all listed as "SOLD OUT". Do they block this days before official game date annoucement or you believe it is really sold out?

    It won’t be sold out , the game isn’t confirmed so I presume this is why. You should be able to get a tour on the Tuesday no problem. If you are a member you can use your card to get a discount.

    For some reason they have put absolute minimum possible which was,taking thomas cook and their max 35% and max numbers for club and sponsors. It does say lower down that last season this was typically 20% of tickets. Obviously many more because TCS didn't take any and club took reduced amount mainly from the extra 200 Vips, i guess

    They seem to have stopped accepting entries into the ballot.

    Cannot seem to find the table of ballot dates anymore on the official site though :confused:

    [edit] just had the text to say not successful :(

    I've tried a few options, and have stuck with the metro route.
    Park at Altrincham or Brooklands, 15min or 7min tram in, half mile walk (same as if you parked at the cricket club anyway), but avoid the mass fury to get out.

    Most likely a chunk cheaper too... Monday night would be buttons, or free parking at the metro stops, and about £3.80-4 tram. Would imagine the cricket club would be a £10?

    I had thought (after my first visit to Manchester) that I would park by Manchester Arena (used the one across the road before and seemed reasonable enough) walk to Victoria tram stop, tram to Trafford Park then walk up. Costs roughly £10-12 for parking and tickets. That make sense?

    Can't beat the tram mate, so I'd do that.
    As long as you and whoever is with you are comfortable with what can be a few mins of a crush until it empties out.

    Personally I like to break the trip up a bit too, as when I get to Altrincham, I have a 170mile drive!

    Any recommendations on parking for the Arsenal game tomorrow? I thought about pre-booking, but don't want to book somewhere that's going to be a pain to get to with the traffic, we should arrive about 6:30 so assume its going to be really busy, I've never driven to a match before.


    Edit
    Nevermind, realise someone asked above, will try the cricket ground I think. Would try the tram method but I'd rather be able to just park up and walk to keep it simple as I'm not really sure where I'm going around the roads there.

    For anyone travelling from the north of Old Trafford I'd suggest take M602 and come off at Eccles.

    You can then either park up at Ladywell tram stop (free parking) and get tram to Anchorage. 5/10 min walk from there.

    Or alternatively continue in car onto Centenary/Coronet Way and park up at Media City multi storey. About £5 for parking. 10/15 min walk over Ship Canal to the ground.

    If you take that route after match back to Eccles, you'll miss most of match traffic that gets snarled up around Trafford Rd heading towards M602.

    Some decent drinking establishments on Media City/Lowry if you're fancying a pre match pint. Sadly Sam Platts is no longer with us..... :(

    How does one apply to the Red Army to get into that section?
    I have my season ticket in the NE quadrant and it definitely isn't the liveliest place up there :) So would love to go somewhere with a bit more of an atmosphere

    Well... you need to become a member of the Red Army group first which costs £5. There’s more info at the link below and the group has its own forum as well. Once you’re a member you can apply to be in the Red Army section on a game by game basis. If the application is successful a paper ticket will be posted to you for your new seat for that match.

    If you’re on your own... your chances of being successful in the ballot for the Red Army section will be smaller as they do favour groups. For instance, I am in a group with 5 mates and we all apply together. Having said that, for cup games you’d probably get in anyway as we sometimes get a bigger Red Army allocation... like having L-Stand in the Europa League. Your best bet is if you go with your mates... is to all join and group up. If you’re on your own, you can easily make friends and join an existing group. Barca bar is the official pre-match drinking venue and they encourage members to go along and meet up.

    If you check out their forum, you’ll learn way more from just checking out the posts and questions.

    For those asking for parking, I always give the same advice.

    Park at Parrs Wood entertainment complex. Get on tram to Trafford Bar (ten minute walk from stadium). Tram back to East Didsbury after the game. You’ll be on m6 within 35 minutes of final whistle if you do it right.

    I jump on in Withington normally. Stop off at The Railway and a few pubs in Chorlton on the way home.

    Car park in Warren Bruce Road (£7) then leave via Ashburton Road and Jnct 10 of the M60 - generally is a quick getaway as long as you get back to your car straight after the final whistle.

    How does it work if you’re seated somewhere else ? Does your seat become available then ?

    Yeah... exactly that. United just sell your seat for that game. I haven’t been in my usual ST seat once this season.
