Ahead of the current season they announced around 1,200 seats will be available in the Family Stand area, having managed to relocate the Family Stand without any adverse effects.

A statement from the Premier League side in May read: “Following recent feedback regarding enhancing the stadium atmosphere, Manchester United has accommodated a number of fan-led ‘atmosphere trials’ this season which have been extremely successful.

“The results captured so far this season indicate that, despite only trialling the area with around 600 supporters, those who sit there are actively participating and making a difference to the stadium atmosphere.”

One song you may often hear is ‘Take me home, United Road’, which has been sung proudly for years.

The place where they belong

To the tune of John Denver’s Take Me Home, Country Roads…

“Take me home, United road,

To a place that I belong,

To Old Trafford, to see United,

Take me home, United road…”

It is one of many sung loudly by United’s fans and even manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has his own, which is sung to the tune of Johnny Cash’s ‘You are My Sunshine’
