Anytime I've been to old Trafford I've always seen the scalpers outside the stadium.

Never needed them as its an arranged trip, and I've gone with a ticket.

Have a mate in Manchester today and is looking a ticket.

Are they still about before games?
Are they legit tickets or you risk getting a fake?

Did your mate have any luck?

Hi everyone, unsure where to put this post so I'll put it here. A friend of mine promised to get me a ticket for the game on Sunday vs Newcastle and he has unfortunately let me down. So I'm left stuck, without paying through the nose for 1. Ive already a bought a train ticket and paid for a hotel as I'm in Manchester for a meeting on Monday anyway. So the 2 questions I have are.

Does anyone know of anyone selling a reasonably priced ticket for the game? Or how much am I gonna be paying at OT on the day and or is it even possible.

Thanks in advance.

Sorry bit late back to this, so in the 1st instance he didn't bother trying for the Liverpool game.

Did have 2 other mates over for the newcastle game, the company they had booked the tickets with cancelled them the day before when they had already flown over to Manchester.

They went on fb marketplace, picked up couple of tickets, and got to stadium to find they were fakes. Think they spend 150 quid each on them. Scum bags selling the duds.

So yeah, I've no idea how's best/safest to get a ticket if you're in Manchester and your original ticket falls through.

I saw loads of scalpers outside of the ground on Wednesday, can’t confirm if legit but I was with a season ticket holder and he said they’re out there each game. He didn’t know if they were safe or not though.
