It was inevitable, and opposite Manchester United’s OId Trafford stadium – 99 Sir Matt Busby Way, a location that is recognised by sports fans all over the world. Hotel Football is to open on 8 December 2014. Behind the project are former Man U teammates, Ryan Giggs and Gary Neville. Phil Neville, Paul Scholes and Nicky Butt, all members of what is known as “the class of ‘92”, are also involved.
The 133-room hotel will offer the ultimate match day experience, with bespoke corporate hospitality packages, as well as being home to The Old Trafford Supporters Club.
Talking about the new development, Gary Neville said: “To make sure that the hotel appeals to everyone, not just football fans, we are working with some of the most talented people in the industry to create something unique and inviting – with a focus on excellent customer service.”
Taking the football theme one step further, the hotel will feature its own rooftop football pitch. The ideal event space for parties or a casual kick-about, known simply as ‘Heaven’, the pitch on the 11th floor boasts panoramic views of Manchester. With a fully retractable roof, it can be hired for unique parties and events for up to 200 people. www.hotelfootball.com
