One of the most successful teams of the modern era is that of Manchester United. They have won the Premier League more times than any other team, sometimes on a consecutive basis. They have won the Champions League several times and can count the FA and League Cup success too. One of the reasons for their success is the immense stadium they play at. This is their continuing home ground of Old Trafford. It has an amazing pitch that you can tell has been maintained by keeping their Mountfield Parts upto date and from https://www.diyspareparts.com/parts/mountfield/.

Designed by the Scottish architect Archbal Letich it was to be one of the most advanced grounds for the time. It was originally designed to hold one hundred thousand spectators with a covered seated south stand and the other 3 as terraces. This was changed to eighty thousand but other, jealous, clubs soon nicknamed them Moneybags United (which is sometimes used today!).
