Creation

The famous statue of Sir Matt Busby

Prior to 1902, Manchester United were known as Newton Heath, in which time they played their football matches at Bank Street, Clayton. This proved unsatisfactory, and as the club renamed to Manchester United, following near bankruptcy, the club underwent financial restructuring, and thus had funds for a new ground.

Original plans suggest the ground would hold 100,000 (not seated), though this was scaled back to 80,000 (though never reached). The ground was developed at the then substantial cost of £60,000, featuring seating in the south stand under cover, with the east, west and north stands uncovered. Designs were drawn up by famous Scottish architect Archibald Leitch, who also designed stands at Hampden Park, Ibrox Stadium, Highbury, Craven Cottage and White Hart Lane.

Expansions

The Stretford End in the early-1990s

Bombing during the Second World War on the 11th March 1941 destroyed much of the stadium, notably the main stand. Though this was rebuilt in 1949, it meant that a league game had not been played at Old Trafford for nearly 10 years.

Subsequent improvements occurred, including all the stands being covered (as opposed to just the main stand originally), and proper floodlight installation. Following the 1959 reconstruction of the Stretford End in line with the style of the original ground, the club then embarked on a radical new direction to create a bowl-style stadium. The first cantilever-roofed stand came in 1964 with the opening of the United Road (North) Stand and with it, the first private boxes at a British football ground. In 1973, the cantilever was extended to the Scoreboard End, reconstruction of the South Stand followed from 1978 to 1984 and in 1986 the south-east corner, still little altered up to that point from the original construction, was replaced with a similar cantilever. The Stretford End, officially named West Stand, is a stand on the west side of Old Trafford, the stadium of Manchester United F.C. It took its name from the nearby town of Stretford, as it is in the direction of Stretford, looking from the centre of the pitch. ...


The next stage would have been replacement of the Stretford End with a new all-standing terrace with a cantilever roof to link with the three already-redeveloped sides of the ground. In 1990, though, following the Hillsborough disaster, the Taylor Report recommended, and the government demanded, a move to all-seater stadia. Subsequent rebuilding of the Stretford End and conversion of the paddocks on the other three sides of the ground in line with the Taylor Report dropped capacity to around 44,000. However, the club's popularity ensured that further development would occur. In 1995, the North Stand was rebuilt as a three tier stand, bringing the capacity up to approximately 55,000, and upper tiers were added in 1999-2000 to both ends as well raising the capacity to around 68,000.

The ground's most recent expansion saw the addition of around 8,000 seats by "filling-in" the second tier of the north-west and north-east quadrants of the ground. The stadium is now the 36th largest soccer stadium in the World and the 12th largest in Europe. The South Stand remains the only single-tiered stand, its development hindered by a railway line located directly behind it. Although the line could be built over, at least fifty residential properties would have to be demolished for any Railroad or railway tracks are used on railways, which, together with railroad switches (points), guide trains without the need for steering. ...

Part of the new seating was used for the first time on 26 March 2006, when an attendance of 69,070 became a new Premiership record. However, this lasted just 3 days before 69,522 people watched United play West Ham on 29 March, and was re-broken on a frequent basis as more sections of the new quadrants were opened.
