  Old Trafford (football) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Old Trafford (given the nickname The Theatre of Dreams by Bobby Charlton) is a football stadium that serves as the home of Manchester United.
Located in the borough of Trafford in Greater Manchester, it has been United's permanent home since 1910 apart from an eight year forced exile when the stadium was bombed in 1941.
Old Trafford is by far the largest club ground in Britain and is all-seater, which is a legal requirement of all higher league British club grounds and new stadium developments since the Taylor Report in the early 1990s.

 The Borough of Trafford, Greater Manchester
Bordered by the industrial estate of Trafford Park on its eastern side, and by the open countryside of rural Cheshire on the south and Southwest, it is a borough of visible and surprising contrasts.
Trafford is one of the two Greater Manchester Boroughs not based on a town or city, (the other is Tameside) - Trafford is an entity created in 1974 out of several local towns, which were combined to form the new Metropolitan Borough.
The name of Trafford derives from the de Trafford Family, who held most of the lands in the borough since medieval times, including Stretford, Urmston and Dunham Massey, and whose emblem, the Griffin, is represented in the Borough Coat of Arms.

The Old Trafford site in the west of Manchester was selected when United's Bank Street ground was deemed too hemmed in to satisfy their ambitions, and by 1910 a fine 80,000 capacity stadium had arisen from the drawing board of Scotsman Archibald Leitch.
Major structural developments were thwarted by the depression of the 1930s and WWII bomb damage, but the chance to stage 3 World Cup 1966 fixtures provided the impetus for a new masterplan to be drawn up, which notably incorporated private boxes for the first time in a European stadium.
The masterplan was completed in 1994, with Old Trafford transformed into an impressive cantilevered all-seater bowl, but with demand for tickets out-stripping supply an increase in capacity was required.
