No experience in Manchester is complete without checking out a football game (that’s soccer if you’re American). Manchester United, or ManU as the team is affectionately dubbed, is considered one of the world’s most popular football teams. Their stadium, Old Trafford, houses the pitch (that's British for 'field'), the stands, and a museum dedicated to preserving the history of one of Britain's greatest teams.
The team’s history is rich and deep in Manchester. Around for more than a century, it has earned the most trophies in English football – 19 league titles, 11 FA Cups, 4 League Cups, 3 European Cups, 1 UEFA Cup Winners’ Cup, 1 International Cup, 1 FIFA Club World Cup and more. It even earned the UEFA Champions League honor, something no English team has done before.
If time and money are pressed, check out Manchester's other football team - Manchester City. Though not as famous or as decorated as ManU, Manchester City historically holds its own in the Premier League, despite being overshadowed by the Manchester's biggest star.

ManU’s season starts in August and concludes in April. It’s
a wise idea to purchase tickets before visiting Manchester. There are a few options to arrive
at Old Trafford, the historic stadium where the team plays. The best way is via
train from Manchester Piccadilly to Old Trafford. A good idea for Sunday games
is to take the Metrolink, which runs every 12 minutes. Disembark at Lancashire County Cricket Club on Warwick Rd. The bus
is available, but taking it is not advised.
