“Stones Concert June 2018”

★☆☆☆☆

written by libray1 on 22/06/2018

Arrived at Old Trafford 1 hour prior to opening time for concert, looking forward to get another Stones concert. Herded like cattle all around the houses to pick up tickets from booking office. Walk was lengthy, as were queues and as a result we missed the support musician. There were lots of people behind us in the queue and we would not have been the only ones to miss part of the concert. There was no warning we even needed to pick up hard copies of the tickets nor of the lengthy walk involved to do so. My husband who has problems walking any distance struggled with the length of the walk. Old Trafford are blaming Groupon who sold us the tickets for this, and have replied to my complaint in a disrespectful and patronising way. Nothing like passing the buck for their disgustingly poor organisation of this event!!! We will be not be attending events at Old Trafford in future. Why on earth would we pay to be treated in such a disrespectful way, and not receive what we had paid for anyway? Get your act together Old Trafford. You need to provide what people have paid for and also treat your customers with respect.

“Segregation of Disabled”

★☆☆☆☆

written by ahSelf1987 on 20/10/2017

Apart from the shambolic way they handled the concert sales; utterly clueless; to have to explain not all disabilities are visible is shocking. Then to be told OT seat all their disability customers together even if they do not require a ramp is outrageous. Little short of herding the disabled like they are contagious animals to be penned together and held away from "normal" people. Basically if you got to concert at OT and are disabled you can expect to be situated as far from the stage as possible and even if you offer to pay the excess for a better seat they wont oblige. Rude; arrogant and unhelpful the lot of them.

Following our recent experience at the Stones concert in June 2018 I couldn't agree with this review more in respect of the way OT treat their customers.

“Tickets for the wrong side?”

★★☆☆☆

written by waynebat7 on 10/10/2017

I bought tickets online and ended up sitting with leeds rhino's supporters, I typed in that I am a Castleford tigers supporter, other cas fans had the same trouble, I don't know if some rhino's supporters had the same trouble, but I hated being sat at the wrong side with the wrong supporters.

“Old Trafford was at its best in the early 1990's when...”

★★☆☆☆

written by on 22/02/2010

Old Trafford was at its best in the early 1990's when the roofline was the same all the way round. Now its a complete mess and the place looks like a steelworks. The stands dont match whether your inside or outside the ground, theres no leg room and getting refreshments at half time is impossible. Apart from the big matches theres no atmosphere either.
Bobby Charlton must have been having a laugh when he cristened the ground 'the theatre of dreams', he clearly wasnt looking from a spectators viewpoint!
Even the last piece of the original ground (the players tunnel on the half way line) has been replaced with a soul-less entrance from the corner flag.
The place is worth visiting however, because of the historical sculptures and plaques on the outside and because it is such a large and famous ground, but i would think many real football fans would be left with a sense that they are disappointed in the reality of the place. For shear nostalgia and atmosphere visit Anfield, Goodison, White Hart Lane or Pompey, you will enjoy the experience more.
Saying that, the museum at Old Trafford is very good but food and drinks are very expensive. Try Lou Macari's chippy on nearby Chester Road for some real 'manc' food (chips and gravy) at a great price!

“Visited Old Trafford for the first time as an away fan. ”

★★☆☆☆

written by Mango1402 on 24/01/2010

Visited Old Trafford for the first time as an away fan.

At first sight it's a reasonably imposing sight, but close up you see how old a stadium it really is.

Inside there is zero leg room, and you are almost sat on the knee of your neighbour. The concourses outside are far to narrow creating major congestion at half time. Queue's are processed so slowly you have no chance of leaving on h/t whistle, queuing and being back in time for kick off.

The home support is very poor. At times it is so quite it's hard to believe there are 80,000 people in there. Away support nearly always out sing the home 'support'. I guess this is the price you pay for being the ground being half full of tourists and people on corporate jollies.

Food looked reasonable quality and price (remember I didn't get time to sample it), but £42 for an away ticket is outrageous.

Wouldn't bother going again.

“im a UNITED fan and it was my first time going to Old...”

★★★★★

written by on 24/05/2009

im a UNITED fan and it was my first time going to Old Trafford. I went on the tour and i thought it was good i mean my mum enjoyed it and shes a Tottenham fan. It is good because you have the chance on the tour to sit in fergies spot and when you go in the changing rooms well i would say that fan was the most popular and when you walked in everyone rushed to ronaldos seat but personally im a TEVEZ so i went their. Once the tourist talked you through the changing rooms you were allowed to move around and have your pic took with the players shirt and you can even touch them i would rate it 10/10 TO A PERSON WHO DOSENT SUPPORT UNITED AND TO A UNITED FAN A WOULD RATE IT 11/10 :-)

Walking down the tunnel is really good as they play a track of lots of fans cheering as you walk down the tunnel

“ive visited old trafford many times and i always...”

★☆☆☆☆

written by kippax88 on 03/05/2009

ive visited old trafford many times and i always thought atmosphere was very poor the catering tastes like it has been dragged in manchester ship canal for a week then cooked.
the hospitality is rather poor aswell. it is more of a stadium for familys and day trippers, not one for the die hard football fan.
it is like lego just bits stuck onto other bits..

and the prices for tickets is a mockery to the english workin man!
plus no leg room...

2 / 10

“after visiting Old Trafford i have come to my...”

★★★☆☆

written by diehardunited on 26/04/2009

after visiting Old Trafford i have come to my conclusion regarding the atmosphere! i really couldn't find anything good to say about it. on arrival i was amazed by the smell that surrounded it, it somewhat smelt like a swamp. once you get in i feel the atmosphere was very poor! I studied English literature at Oxford university and can honestly say there was more noise in the library than Old Trafford. I have supported united for many years know but have never had the chance to visit that much as i live in London. i also feel that the players and certainly managerial staff looked under the weather. even though we lost on the day 2-1 to visiting side Manchester City i will definitely be visiting Old Trafford again to watch my beloved united.

“Old Trafford is a large and modern stadium yet still...”

★★★★☆

written by BartManUtd on 21/03/2009

Old Trafford is a large and modern stadium yet still manages to be fairly compact which helps with good views and can contribute towards a good atmosphere. Atmosphere does depend on who is playing, when, and most importantly which stand you sit in. It looks really impressive as you approach the ground from any direction. It looks smart, modern and imposing although, since its expension to 76000 the noise does not travel to outside the ground so you cannot her the singing as you approach like you could in the past. Sit in the Streford End (aka West Stand) on a Eurpoean night and hear the noise as you climb the many stairs, be amazed as the singing continues on the concourse and the roof is raised even in the toilets! This is the traditional stand of the United supporters. Ascend into the heights of the stand and you'll be buzzing. The opposite East stand is 2nd best for singing but not as loud. However, for the best views of the pitch you want to be in the North Stand, preferably near to one of the goal ends for increased atmosphere. Don't sit in the South Stand (where the dugouts are) unless you have taken a vow of silence. Its family friendly, women friendly and very safe. I've never seen any trouble and racism won't be tolerated by United regulars.

Great Ground, Great Club ,Great fans, Great football but go elsewhere for a decent pie.

“Old trafford is nothing more than a money making...”

★★★☆☆

written by on 25/03/2008

Old trafford is nothing more than a money making machine, the the $$$$ have been put before the fans. There is no atmosphere, surprising considering theres nearly 80,000 people there, must be too many toffs who dont lower themselves to singing with everyone else. The place was a mess, there was litter everywhere, for the stadium belonging to the Premiership Champions you would expect better.

★★★★★

written by on 08/03/2008

Old Trafford is a terrible stadium! Yes it big but theres no atmosphere and no room, its basically 76,000 battery chickens! They just keep expanding to make more money with no appreciation for the fans. The stadium is not usually tidy or particularly well after on the occasions I have seen it, maybe the Glazers have spent all the budget to look after it, ha ha ha

★★★★☆

written by on 06/03/2008

Olt Trafford has a great atmosphere, especially at the high pressure european nights. The seats cause are crammed in together and theres no leg room, maybe a few less seats and better conditions for supporters. On the whole though Old Trafford is a great stadium.

“I've been to old trafford twice in the past 12 months,...”

★★★☆☆

written by jammyjamjam on 03/01/2008

I've been to old trafford twice in the past 12 months, to see chelsea v blackburn in the FA cup semi finals, and chelsea v man u at the beginning of this season. both times, i was hugley dissapointed with the ground itself, what with all the hype about its size and atmosphere, to me it looked large from the outside, but once in seemed small, cramped and unimposing, basically a letdown. As for the fans, they made something of a noise when man u were putting a quality move together, and were silent when they didn't have the ball or were playing poor.

Ultimatley, Old trafford was a huge let down for me. Whilst some Man Utd fans are sure to dispute this, i was expecting more, and, whilst it is still impressive, is no where near what i and many others imagined it to be.

★★☆☆☆

written by on 01/01/2008

The seats at Old Trafford Football Stadium are very small in my opinion, and downstairs is very congested. I think it's a poor stadium, too many seats ,and not a patch on other Stadiums.

“Old Trafford Football Stadium has a good atmosphere...”

★★★★★

written by on 31/12/2007

Old Trafford Football Stadium has a good atmosphere and is good value for money. I think that Old Trafford is the best football ground in England, and I have been to many stadiums including Anfield, Emirates, City of Manchester and Wembley. There is no spitting, and all the areas between fans and away supporters are blocked by police. The atmosphere can't be complained about if it is a boring England match. If you want to go, I recommend that you go and watch the reds.

“Great game in a great stadium. Better off parking at...”

★★★★★

written by WeeJinky on 13/05/2007

Great game in a great stadium. Better off parking at the cricket ground although it will still be tough getting away, looking at a good 30 minutes to get traffic to a decent pace. Food prices are no more expensive than other grounds, not getting a brilliant deal, but no worse than you'd expect. Good place to go if you want to watch world class football in comfort, not so good if you're looking for an on your feet singing till your throat bleeds atmosphere, try the Park head.
