A quintet of Manchester United legends led by Gary Neville and Ryan Giggs have unveiled their latest trophy this week – the world’s first ever Hotel Football.

The new venture is the brainchild of GG Hospitality – of which Neville and Giggs are directors – and aims to provide a premium themed hotel experience within a stone’s throw of United’s Old Trafford stadium.

The five footballing stars behind the venture – Gary Neville, Ryan Giggs, Paul Scholes, Nicky Butt and Phil Neville – are the main backers of the estimated £24m (US$37m, €32.8m) complex, which will also serve as the Old Trafford Supporters' Club (OTSC).

The 8,000sq m (86,111sq ft) building – designed by AEW Architects – incorporates a 133-bedroom hotel with public space for OTSC members and spectators, plus a new Café Football – boasting a menu designed by two Michelin star chef, Michael Wignall. Taking the football theme one step further, the hotel will feature its own impressive rooftop football pitch which can be hired for unique parties and events for up to 200 people.

Talking about the new development, Gary Neville said: “Ryan and I have spent so much of our lives playing at Old Trafford and appreciate everyone who supported us there over the years.

“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.”

The 11-storey Hotel Football will be run by general manager Stewart Davies, who has previously headed up Manchester venues the Mint Hotel and the Hilton Double Tree.
