This illustration will make Man United fans fall back in love with Old Trafford

We know Manchester United fans love England’s most famous football ground but this print will make you see Old Trafford in a whole new light. Old Trafford has been around since 1910 but hasn’t always been known as the Theatre of Dreams.

It used to be a swamp

In the 60’s and 70’s it was known as the swamp because of the state of the pitch when it came to January and February as the rain would build up.

Sir Bobby Charlton coined its famous nickname

Manchester United’s home ground, Old Trafford was nicknamed as ‘Theatre of Dreams’ by England’s greatest footballer Sir Bobby Charlton. “It simply means, its the place where you follow your dreams, glory and happiness! The place where histories are made and rewritten.”

Turf Football want to highlight its sheer mass

Friends of the Football Shirt Collective, Turf Football, have pitched in with this glorious print.

“The illustration captures a view of the corner between the Sir Alex Ferguson Stand and the East Stand, from the Stretford End of the ground, with the distinct cantilever roof structure highlighting the sheer mass of what is Britain’s largest club stadium.”
