Old Trafford Expansion Plans - Noucamp99 - 25-01-2017

Manchester United are seriously considering expanding the Old Trafford capacity to a staggering 88,000.

The increase by more than 12,000 would be likely to start with an extra 7,500 seats in the Sir Bobby Charlton stand, formerly known as the main stand.

Previously, the railway line at the back of the structure meant expansion would require a costly tunnel and the demolition of a number of houses. Advances in technology, however, mean this may no longer be an issue.

Following completion, capacity would stand at about 88,000 — putting Old Trafford second only to Barcelona’s 99,354-capacity Nou Camp at club level in Europe.

It would be second in this country to Wembley (90,000) and bigger than Real Madrid’s Bernabeu (85,454).
