Any trip to Old Trafford to see Manchester United is an exciting one: the sight of the team lining up in those famous red shirts in front of a vast crowd of 75,000 people is enough to make the hair on the back of anyone’s neck stand up. However, a matchday VIP trip can make the day even more special, adding all kinds of extra elements to a day of great entertainment and luxury off the pitch as well as exciting action on it. A range of different packages exist, ranging in price from £149 to £299 plus VAT per person. Perhaps the most exciting of these is the Europa Suite, where the experience starts a full three hours before kick-off. Starting with canapes and champagne on arrival, lunch consists of a superb four-course meal and a complimentary bar.
There will also be entertainment that includes a Q&A session with a former United player. The game itself will be viewed from padded comfy seats in the south stand, while after the match there will be more refreshments and the man-of-the-match presentation. Fans can enjoy all the same in the North West Quadrant Europa Suite, with the viewpoint being located between the Stretford End and the towering Sir Alex Ferguson Stand. The Museum Package is a great option for those who love their history, with a chance to get close-up and personal with a range of memorabilia, including a chance to have your picture taken with replicas of the treble of European Cup, FA Cup and Premier League trophy won by the likes of Phil and Gary Neville in 1999.
The museum visit will be complemented by a hot and cold buffet followed by a comfy seat in the Sir Alex Ferguson Stand, plus post-match refreshments and entertainment. Finally, there are the Red Cafe pre-match and post-match options, which both offer a chance to eat in the famous restaurant and meet with famous past players to enjoy lunch or tea and discuss the finer points of the game. So whatever the result of the game, a VIP day at Manchester United is sure to provide a superb all-round day out.
