The Old Trafford Metrolink station is directly outside the stadium, on the line between Altrincham and the City Centre. A regular service operates from Bury in North Manchester, Altrincham (South Manchester), and from Central Manchester. There is a connecting service to Salford Quays and Eccles.

Metrolink is also connected to both mainline railway stations, Piccadilly & Victoria, and runs to Old Trafford Station, next to the cricket ground. Tickets are available from dispensers on all stations.

Please note: there will be no trams running on the Manchester-Altrincham line on Saturday 26 or Sunday 27 July – a bus replacement service will operate. The bus stops are right outside Emirates Old Trafford at the junction of Talbot Road and Warwick Road. Click here for full details.
