Old trafford to the airport - United -v- Chelsea on May 05th

Our flight home is leaving at 8pm, so gate closes 7:30-ish... K.O is 4pm.. will we make it on time or should I leave a bit early, whats the best way to make sure we don't miss the flight?

I know how busy it does be in and around OT after game

Any advice at all on this would be much appreciated!!

I think if you do not leave 15 min before it finishes, your odds are extremely low because of the crowds and congestion.

There's a train from the station under The South Stand at 6:04pm, that would get you to the airport at 6:47pm. It would involve one easy change at Oxford Road Station. There would be no need to change platforms, you would arrive and depart from the same platform.

The next train leaves Old Trafford at 6:36pm and arrives at the airport at 7:17pm, that may leave you a bit tight. You would make the same change as above.

The trains are well used, so to catch the first train would mean leaving early. Purchase your train ticket before the game.

Trains to the stadium leave Piccadilly at 2:21pm, 2:52pm and 3:30pm.

Thanx for the replies above!

We were thinking of leaving the match 15mins early (5:30) and getting the tram back into city center to collect the bags and have a taxi ordered for 6 from hotel.. the flight is at 8 so im hoping we will be ok, what do you reckon?
