Trams on the Altrincham line operate to Old Trafford which is directly next to the stadium. However, with so many people going to the match, services will be very busy and you may want to walk to another stop before or after the fixture to avoid the crowds.
There are several stops within a short walking distance of the venue.
Firswood: A 10-minute walk away. Board an East Didsbury line or Manchester Airport line service from this stop.
Wharfside: A 15-minute walk away.
Exchange Quay: A 20-minute walk away. Board a tram on the Eccles line
