The future of Old Trafford The Manchester United Supporters Trust has won a bid to safeguard it if the club's owners ever put the stadium up for sale.

The Manchester United Supporters Trust now has the power to safeguard Old Trafford if the club's owners ever put the stadium up for sale.

The ground – the club's home since 1910 – will be labelled as an Asset of Community Value, meaning the possibility it could be sold by club owners the Glazer family will be reduced.

If the current or future owners decide to sell the ground, the supporters' group would now have a six-month window in which to halt the sale, to offer groups within the community the chance to make a bid for the stadium. The application was granted by Trafford Council.

In a statement, United officials said that the club had "concerns that legislation is not being applied correctly, which could set a precedent throughout the country." The Glazer family is planning to appeal the decision.
