Old Trafford, given the nickname The Theatre of Dreams by Bobby Charlton, is an all-seater football stadium in the Trafford borough of Greater Manchester, England and the home of Manchester United F.C. The ground has been the club's permanent residence since 1910, with the exception of an eight year absence from 1941 to 1949 following the bombing of the stadium in the Second World War. During this period, the club shared Maine Road with local rivals, Manchester City. The stadium is located approximately 0.5 miles (0.8 km) from Old Trafford Cricket Ground and the adjacent Manchester Metrolink tram station.

The ground has frequently hosted FA Cup semi-final matches as a neutral venue, as well as hosting several England international fixtures whilst the new Wembley Stadium was under construction. It also hosted matches at the 1966 FIFA World Cup and Euro 96, as well as the 2003 UEFA Champions League Final. Outside of football, Old Trafford has hosted Super League's Grand Final since the rugby league's adoption of playoffs in 1998.

Behind Wembley Stadium, Old Trafford has the largest capacity of any English football stadium at just over 76,000, and is the only UEFA 5-star rated facility in England.
