Man Utd Fans Football Ground
The name of Manchester United football ground is called "Old Trafford". Bobby Charlton called it the "Theatre of Dreams" and Old Trafford is an all-seater football stadium in Greater Manchester's Trafford borough. Old Trafford has the second-largest capacity (at just over 76,000) of any English football stadium after Wembley Stadium, and is the only facility in England with a UEFA 5-star rating. Man Utd Fans stadium is located only 0.5 miles from the Old Trafford Cricket Ground and the Manchester Metrolink tram station is only next door.
Fans have watched their football at Old Trafford since 1910, only with the exception between 1941 to 1949 when the stadium was bombed during the Second World War. During this time, the supporters shared Maine Road with local rivals, Manchester City. Many FA Cup semi-final matches have been played at Old Trafford, as well as hosting several international fixtures for England during the construction of the new Wembley Stadium. Also in 1966 FIFA World Cup and Euro 96 the ground hosted many matches, as well as the 2003 UEFA Champions League Final.
Outside of football, Old Trafford has hosted Super League's Grand Final since the rugby league's adoption of playoffs in 1998, as well as the final of the 2000 Rugby League World Cup.
Man Utd Fan History started back in 1993 when manager Sir Alex Ferguson ended a 26-year drought to lift the Premier League crown. Man Utd is the most successful Premier League club and has won the title eleven times.
The signing of Eric Cantona for £1.2m from Leeds United was a genius decision as the Frenchman was critically involved in the title victory, along with Gary Pallister, Denis Irwin, Paul Ince and Ryan Giggs.
One of the most greatest times in the clubs history was the treble-winning season of 1999 when they added the European Champions League trophy to the league title and FA Cup.
Manchester United first won the trophy in 1993 then white washed the league claiming further titles in 1994, 1996, 1997, 1999, 2000, 2001 and 2003. More prizes were added to the club's hoard with FA Cup success in 1994, 1996, 1999 and 2004, plus League Cup wins in 1992 and 2006.
2007/08 was very memorable, with Man Utd Fans winning their most successful season since winning the treble. With challenges from Chelsea and Arsenal pressing them, Manchester United managed to win the Barclays Premier League and defeat the Blues on penalties in the Champions League final after a 1-1 draw between the two sides in Moscow.
Chelsea also ruined a clear winning spell when with their title wins in 2005 and 2006. But in the 2006/07 season, Manchester United roared back to win the Barclays Premiership.
In 2008/09, Man Utd Fans made it a hat-trick of wins, also securing the Carling Cup title but in the Champions League final they only just lost out to Barcelona.
Again in 2010 they kept gold of the Carling Cup but with just one point in it, they finished just behind Chelsea in the Barclays Premier League after a stressful battle that took them right to the last day of the season.
In 1878 a football team was created known as Newton Heath L&YR F.C, but then in 1902 the club changed its name to Manchester United. Only six years after they won the Division One title, then in 1909 the FA Cup, and then in 1911 another successful campaign.
In 1945 Matt Busby became manager and turn in the famous victories of 1952, 1956 and 1957. They made history becoming the first English team to compete in the European Cup reaching the semi-final, before being defeated by Real Madrid. Darker times appeared in 1958 when a plane carrying the squad home from a European match crashed. Eight of the players were killed.
Matt Busby survived the crash and took the rebuilt team to an FA Cup win in 1963, then more titles in 1965 and 1967. In 1968 the club won the European Cup by making history again by being the first English club to claim a win over Benfica in the final. In 1969 Matt Busby resigned and five years later the Man Utd was relegated as the successive Management failed to continue the glorious run of success.
The teams supporters cheered their club back to the success in 1977 winning the FA CUp final having rejoined the top division after their brief relegation and in 1983 and 1985 followed further FA Cup success, however it was Man Utd Fans success in the 1990 FA Cup win over Crystal Palace that secured their future dominant position in English football.
Man Utd Fans have enjoyed huge amount of success and this is in no small part to commitment and dedication of the support from the Fans.

Alex Ferguson and his assistant Archie Knox arrived from Aberdeen in 1986 on the day of Atkinson's dismissal, and guided the Man Utd to an 11th-place finish in the league. In 1987–88 Manchester United finished in second-place, but despite this success the following season the club was back to 11th place. Rumoured to be at the moment of dismissal, a win over Crystal Palace in the FA Cup Final replay of 1990 (after a 3–3 draw) saved Alex Ferguson's reputation. The next season, the club claimed their first Cup Winners' title and competed in the 1991 UEFA Super Cup, beating in the final at Old Trafford, the European Cup holders Red Star Belgrade 1–0. In 1992 the team again made it to the League Cup final, where the team defeated Nottingham Forest at Wembley 1–0. The club then won its first league title since 1967 in 1993 and the next year Manchester United won a second consecutive title for the first time since 1957, collecting the title alongside the FA Cup silverware they managed to grab the the clubs first "Double" in Man Utd's history.
In the 1998–99 season Manchester United became the first club in English history to win the "Treble", the Premier League, FA Cup and UEFA Champions League. Needed the greatest comeback of all time and trailing 1–0 going into injury time, the 1999 UEFA Champions League Final was only saved by dramatic late goals by Teddy Sheringham and Ole Gunnar Solskjær claiming victory over Bayern Munich. They also won the Intercontinental Cup in Tokyo, beating Palmeiras 1–0. Alex Ferguson later received a knighthood for his services to football and Ryan Giggs remains English football's most decorated player.
Manchester United took part in the first FIFA Club World Championship in Brazil in 2000. The club won the league again in the 1999–2000 and the follow 2000–01 season. The club finished as runners-up in 2001–02, before taking top slot again in 2002–03. They then won the 2003–04 FA Cup at the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff, defeating Millwall 3–0 in the final. However the squad failed to qualify for the knockout stage of the UEFA Champions League in the 2005–06 season. Their first failure in over a decade, but managed to secure a second-place league finish and victory over Wigan Athletic in the 2006 Football League Cup Final.
Again in the 2006–07 and 2007–08 seasons the team managed to regained the Premier League title, and after beating Chelsea 6–5 on penalties in the 2008 UEFA Champions League Final in Moscow's Luzhniki Stadium completed the European double. History was made when Ryan Giggs appeared for the club for the 759th time, beating the previous record help by Bobby Charlton. December 2008 help further success for the club when they managed to win the 2008 FIFA Club World Cup and again more silverware was taken home by winning the 2008–09 Football League Cup, and the third Premier League title in a row.
