Old Trafford

Old Trafford stadium is the home of Manchester United F.C., one of the most famous football clubs in the world. It has been their home for nearly a hundred years, since 1910.

Old Trafford currently has the largest ground capacity of any English football stadium, holding just over 68,000 spectators. It is, of course, all-seater, like all higher league British club grounds have had to be since the Taylor Report[?] in the early 1990s. It is frequently used to host F.A. Cup semi-final matches (as long as Manchester United are not involved, of course), and is also occasionally used to host England international fixtures whilst Wembley Stadium is under reconstruction.
