THE MATCH

MANCHESTER UNITED F.C.
V ATLÉTICO MADRID

Every team wants to get to the Champions League quarter finals, especially Manchester United F.C. who’ve not done too well in this tournament of late. They host Spanish champions Atlético Madrid, a team that plays to win and whose fans will come in droves. The Theatre of Dreams can hold its own though and the Old Trafford massive will match them chant for chant. It’s Rangnick v Simeone, Germany v Argentina, Ronaldo v Griezmann, the Red Devils v Los Colchoneros. Old Trafford will be flying.
THE CLUB

CANTONA’S CLUB
MANCHESTER UNITED’S
THEATRE OF DREAMS

Where a Frenchman was crowned King. Loved worldwide. Remember Giggs, Best and Beckham, Busby, Big Ron and Sir Alex himself. No English club has won more trophies, including 20 league titles and the ‘98-’99 Treble. These are the Red Devils. So pop your collar. Football lives here.

MANCHESTER

Manchester, the working class centre of the North-West, birthplace of the industrial revolution and the city that made Eric Cantona a king. Progressive youth culture, the Mancunian music sound, Factory Records, and the UK’s National Museum of Football. Old Trafford. Cold beer. In this town everyone’s blue or red in a rivalry that runs deep so don’t be afraid to wear your colours on your sleeve.

ACCOMMODATION SIMILAR TO

Marriot Victoria
& Albert Hotel

A stay here is for proper fans – with Man United-themed suites many of which feature club memorabilia – and clean, sumptuous rooms with more mod cons than the Red Devils’ training centre. The Grade II-listed building in Spinningfields is close to some famed fan boozers so falling into bed after the game and a visit to the pub will be easy as Ronaldo heading in another last-minute winner!

CANTONA NA NA

“When Cantona scored the late winner against Pool in the ‘96 FA Cup final to win us the double. It wasn’t a great game at Wembley but we had Eric the King back from suspension and his volley in the 86th minute was a thing of premium beauty. Taking the cup from Liverpool was glorious.”

Owen, Man U fan
