Vehicle entry gates to Emirates Old Trafford remain as they have been over the last few years with entry and exit from both Talbot Road and Great Stone Road. An addition of a third exit gate is provided from Car Park 2 adjacent to the old Ticket Office on to Talbot Road from which we recommend a left turn only towards Stretford if possible.
Line marking will shortly be installed to ensure a safer flow through our car park, restricting some areas to a one way system. We request that you pay attention to this for the health and safety of both yourself and other car park users.
If you experience any problems while on site, please either use the intercom system or visit the reception in either the Pavilion or Hilton Garden Inn Emirates Old Trafford if out of hours.
