The majority of football fans like to have a drink of alcohol before and after the game, to get them in the mood, it is a very social thing; people like to feel part of a club. Most fans will come to Manchester early, have something to eat before, have a catch up with their friends and make a real day of it.

Many fans visiting Man U’s Old Trafford football ground will want to book their accommodation in advance, to get the best deals and cheap hotels and b&b’s.
A bed and breakfast is probably the destination of choice, b&b rooms are very cheap and the clue is in the name, a bed and breakfast does what it says on the tin, you get a bed and then a nice hearty breakfast to cure the hangover from the night before, it is the ideal overnight accommodation for a fan of a visiting club.
An alternative is making a reservation for a fancy apartment rental. In general it’s easy to book a nice, cheap hotel room before or after a day at the match. What you really need is a bed and some food in the morning.
