Cricket World Cup 2019

Please be advised that the majority of roads around Emirates Old Trafford are restricted to resident permit holders only. There is no provision for parking in these areas for those attending the cricket, and anyone claiming to be offering parking on-street for payment on behalf of Trafford Council, the event organisers or otherwise is doing so fraudulently.
Details of transport arrangements for all matches can be found on the Transport for Greater Manchester website.

Requests from residents to introduce resident parking schemes have been grouped into 24 individual schemes. Details about these can be found on the Proposed Resident Parking Schemes page.

Blue parking badges allow cars carrying people who are registered blind or people who have severe walking difficulties to park near shops, stations and other facilities.
