Manchester United Stadium Modification

Some 72,732 were in attendance at Old Trafford for Cristiano Ronaldo’s return, including those experiencing the new disability access areas for the first time.

The club – in association with the Manchester United Disabled Supporters’ Association – have created hundreds of new wheelchair positions and new amenity seats across the stadium, including a new, purpose-built area at the back of the Stretford End – which also has a dedicated lifts, toilets and changing facilities.

United say it is about offering a wider choice of vantage points, with facilities now at both ends of the stadium, and extended facilities in the north-west corner quadrant.

BLP Members worked with the Buckingham Group to install four new 35 metre high concrete lift shafts and new steel frame structures to enable new disabled facilities at the highest level of the Stretford End.
