Manchester United’s home before Old Trafford

by Sonal Shukla

North Road was the first home ground of Manchester United Football Club, then known as Newton Heath LYR Football Club. Currently you can make secure betting on 1xbet.com/en, where you can wager on all matches on the modern Manchester United too.

It was located in the Clayton area of Manchester, close to the Newton Heath railway station, and served as the club’s home from 1878 until 1893.

The ground was very basic, with no stands and limited facilities. The players had to change in a nearby pub, and the ground itself was surrounded by a cinder running track. Now, secure betting on the 1xBet website is always possible on all major venues that are used in the Premier League.

Despite these shortcomings, North Road was a lucky ground for Manchester United, as the team won its first ever competitive game there, beating Bolton Wanderers 6-0 in the Lancashire Cup.
