Dream Comes True – Visit To Manchester United Stadium
My recent visit to the “theatre of dreams” a.k.a “old trafford” was a much awaited trip. I have always wanted to visit old trafford since I’ve turned a MAN UTD fan, do not know when. I have visited the Chelsea football stadium. To be honest, in comparison with the theatre of dreams, Chelsea was no match. The ambience and infrastructure which has gone into building this great stadium for manchester united is just terrific.
One could distinguish between class/finesse and ordinary. The old Trafford is loaded with history. Incidentally, it was the day in remembrance of the dead footballers of Manchester united who died in a plane crash in Munich 50+ years ago. There were flowers outside the stadium and also a minute silence in memory of them. The stadium tour then continued. We visited the east, north, south stands of the stadium, the press room, the dressing rooms of the home team and finally we walked through the path heading to the pitch. It was a really nice feeling. And as we went closer to the seats of the team, I could not wait to sit on Sir Alex Fergusons chair. After all the crowd left, I went and sat on he chair and asked my friend to click pictures of me sitting in the ‘throne’. I could view the entire field from there.
We then approached the end of the tour. Just before Entering the exit, Sir Alex Ferguson thanked us via a recorded video. Then, me and friends visited the megastore to give some empty space to our wallets by pampering ourselves with MAN UTD merchandise. My friend purchased a t-shirt and I bought a football and a mug. Once we finished shopping, we collected our certificates for having toured the Old Trafford. Overall, it was a delightful experience.
