1878 saw the formation of the Newton Heath LYR Football Club. Over the years, they have become one of the World’s top football clubs playing in the English Premier League. According to Forbes, they are also the world’s most valuable football brand.

If you were wondering why you have not heard of the club, in 1902 they changed their name to become the club we now know – Manchester United football club. Eight years later they moved to their present home of Old Trafford.

In the 137 years since their formation, Manchester United have achieved a great record when it comes to domestic and European honours. Their success both at home and abroad happened during the times when Matt Busby (1945 – 1969) and Alex Ferguson (1986 – 2013) managed them. Of all the English clubs, they have won the most league titles, winning the first one in 1908. As well league titles, they have also won 11 FA Cups, four League Cups and 20 FA Community Shields, which is a record for Manchester United.

Under their current manager, Louis van Gaal, Manchester United are currently third in the Premier League. Only two points separate them from the leader, rivals Manchester City. To win the league title in his second season as manager, Louis van Gaal has challenged the team to prove they are title challengers by beating rivals Manchester City when they next meet. If they can win the derby match, and Arsenal lose, they could potentially go top of the Premier League.

Although motivation by the club’s manager is one method to get the best out of players, the support of the fans is the other. Being able to see their team play is important to many fans. Manchester United are one of the most widely supported football teams. For the 2014 – 2015 season, Manchester United had the third highest average home attendance rate in Europe. The ability of fans to get access to tickets is, therefore, important. To achieve this, making available Manchester United tickets for sale at prices they can afford means that the team get the support they are looking for from fans.

While a BBC study has shown that Manchester United have the highest season ticket prices outside London, their match day tickets are comparable with the league average. If you search on the web, there are a number of sites that make available Manchester United tickets for sale. As well as the club’s online ticket service there are also the secondary market ticket sellers who will sell tickets that someone is not able to use for whatever reason.

The opportunities for fans to see their club in action are available.
