      This is great news, I remember FSG went a bit cold on the original development plans and it seemed to be because the new seats (being general admission) would not be nearly as lucrative as the Main Stand build (which was driven by the commercial revenues from VIP boxes and hospitality).

      At least people will be able t see if they're sitting at the back of the redeveloped Annie Road End! goal kicks and high balls aren't much fun if your sat in those back 2-3 rows, you can't bloody see em!

      Seems to be becoming much more of a reality!

      Second stage of consultation began today & the club have confirmed the expansion will consist of 5200 extra general admission seats (not sure what percentage of those will go to people on the ST waiting list) and around 1800 extra hospitality seats

      Brilliant news this..

      Wondering how far away from the pitch the top rows of the 2nd tier will be. When I've seen on TV the upper deck at Old Trafford those seats seem hopelessly far away from the playing surface. I don't get that impression from seeing the top of the Kop or the main stand. I sat at the top tier of the Centenary/SKD stand and it was decent, same with the Anfield Road end (but that's been 12-20 years ago so memories can be tricky).

      Anyway, I hope the seats still give a decent view of the match and they are not just piling people in without giving them an actual good view of the game. Doesn't look that is what's happening.

      As Scott mentioned, towards the back of the lower tier of the current stand is pretty horrific for views as the top tier overlaps & it ends up giving you a letterbox view so I think anything would be an improvement on it's current state  ;D

      In terms of distance from the pitch it should be fine, I sit in the upper corner of the main stand quite a fair bit and the view there is great, I think you get to take in more of the game & appreciate the tactics better from afar, as opposed to being on the first row of a lower tier for instance

      I’m sure I heard it said somewhere today that there will be no hospitality seating in that new stand , or was that just wishfull hearing on my part .

      No corporate seating...sounds like they are putting in an open air bar area for 1800.

      Very wishful thinking!

      To be fair I don't mind hospitality - would never pay that much myself but the way I look at it, ridiculously priced hospitality tickets are what stop standard tickets from being even more expensive than they already are so I'm happy for the club to go down that route if it stops a few quid extra being added to the price of regular tickets.

      Although I do disagree with hospitality tickets counting towards credits. Seen a few people selling & "raffling" hospitality tickets off on Facebook lately so people are obviously buying the tickets for the credit with no intention of going and then raffling / selling them off to make their money back

      I don’t mind it either for that very reason although taken too far it dilutes the atmosphere, still sure I heard it was on the sports news on way home from work , sure they said there will be no hospitality boxes in that stand .

      Agree that higher up is better than being "too" close. True in most sports, actually. The first time at Anfield I was in the press seating and that was the perfect "in-between." The stand I'm thinking of at OT is somewhere near the International Space Station, like.  :)

      These are mock-ups, no official images have been released as far as I am aware, I think the corners may have some seats, but the architecture of the stands means they won't be turned into a bowl like corner.

      FSG have upgraded Fenway, but kept the historical look of the baseball ground.

      I don't think it'll be too long, and I suspect the Club will want the get this started as soon as they can.

      They can not do anything with the corners as it’s what’s holding the roof up, may be they could get away with up too 5 rows at the very front of corners but that would be it

      Only time I’ve managed to get a ticket, I was sitting in those very seats. It wasn’t bad until everyone inevitably starts standing up and you can’t see a thing.

      Ridiculous aren't they! Think they only knock a couple of quid off the ticket price too - should be massively reduced for what you get!

      The Operations guy for the club said they will re-route the road slightly, moving it a bit closer to the stand (as they can't move it into the Park) and this reduced by a small amount how many new seats will be created as a result.

      Sounds like a good compromise to not inconvenience those who use the road, but still allow many more fans to see the games.

      They could have if they wanted to.



      Tricky but definitely possible. Could/should have made it into a 2 tier stand.

      English Premier League football club Manchester United will debut the ‘Seat of Dreams’ at Old Trafford for Sunday’s match against Liverpool, with the UK-first initiative part of an expanded partnership with Marriott Hotels.

      The venture from United and the flagship brand of Marriott International will give fans at every game the chance to experience matchday from a unique vantage point in Old Trafford while enjoying special perks including complimentary food and drinks, early entry to the stadium, and the opportunity to meet club legends.

      United and Marriott believe the Seat of Dreams represents the only concept of its kind to be found within a UK sports stadium. The experience will be awarded to fans at random through a complimentary upgrade to their existing match ticket. The Seat of Dreams will host four fans at every home game.

      The debut of the Seat of Dreams marks the kick-off of a larger relationship between Manchester United and Marriott Hotels, with the hotel brand becoming the club’s first-ever official hotel partner. Marriott International had initially agreed a multi-year global marketing partnership with United back in February.
