ManU Fans Get Their Way, Glazers Won't Fight Ruling On Old Trafford Status
Published September 25, 2013
COMMUNITY ASSET: The PA wrote should ManU ever "decide to relocate" from its home since 1910, it would have to "offer it for sale back to the community." For its part, the club feels that "it has turned into a pointless discussion" as its understanding of the situation is that ManU "could still move, and sell the stadium, but only after offering local clubs the opportunity to pay full market rates for it first." It also contends that, in this instance, ManU as a football club is the community asset and without it, Old Trafford "is merely bricks and mortar." That is "a debatable point given the history of the stadium, although if no team played there, it would evidently not have a worthwhile function" (PA, 9/24).
