Travel and transport
Trafford is a local authority in Greater Manchester, just 3 miles from central Manchester. Many visitors to Trafford travel via Manchester city centre transports hubs including Deansgate, Manchester Oxford Road, Manchester Piccadilly and Manchester Victoria, which offer various public transport services.
Greater Manchester is easily accessible and offers a large transport network that spans the entire city region so it’s easy to get around and see the sights.View Manchester travel guide
Getting to the stadium
Football is unpredictable which means that matches can go to extra-time and penalties. If you are planning to arrive in Manchester and return on the same day, you may want to consider staying overnight to avoid missing the last trains out of Manchester.
The easiest way to get to Old Trafford is using the Metrolink, which is a tram system in Greater Manchester operating across five lines.
The Wharfside Metrolink stop in Trafford is less than ten minutes from Manchester Piccadilly Rail Station, Manchester’s primary national and regional railway hub. From Wharfside, Old Trafford is less than ten minutes by foot. Please check back closer to the tournament for more information about matchday travel during UEFA Women’s EURO 2022.
Even if you have been to Old Trafford before, please keep in mind that things may work slightly differently this summer than on usual matchdays at the venue.
