Things you should know...

  • Old Trafford stadium will host Olympic Football matches between 26 July and 7 August.
  • Even though Manchester and Old Trafford are used to hosting large events, the Olympic Football matches take place during the week at times that may affect travel in the afternoon and evening.
  • Road closures will be in place around the stadium up to three hours prior to a match and remain for approximately one hour after a match.
  • Parking will be significantly reduced and spectators will be encouraged to use public transport or park-and-ride facilities to travel to the stadium. 
  • Check the schedule for matches at Old Trafford
  • We want to give you as much information as possible, as early as possible. However, not all the finer details about transport operations around venues are available yet, such as information about spectator access to venues or restrictions to parking and road access. This is because some of the plans for the Games are still being finalised. The map on this page will be updated as soon as we have more detailed information available. Please check back soon, or keep up-to-date by following us on Twitter.
