My visit to Old Trafford

Hello, my name Kwangpyo Kim. I’m learning English at Manchester Academy of English and I will be in charge of writing a blog for a few weeks.

As a football fan, Manchester is the perfect place where you can experience all about football.

Although Brits are, in general, crazy about football, it's hard to deny that Mancunians – the people from Manchester – are especially enthusiastic.

That is because there are many great clubs in Greater Manchester, such as Manchester United, Manchester City and Bolton Wanderers.

Above all, Manchester is famous for Manchester United and Manchester City, which are two of the biggest football clubs in the world.

There're always arguments between Manchester United fans and Manchester City fans whether it's off season or not. Both teams try hard to beat the rivals and be the first, come hell or high water.

Before the new season started, football fever had already gripped Manchester as usual. I did the Old Trafford museum and stadium tour just the day before the big match against Chelsea.

Before entering inside the stadium, I could already see many of the achievements Manchester United players have made over the years.

Eric Cantona and David Beckham: Both players used to play for Manchester United wearing no.7 jersey, which is given to the most iconic player. * Eric Cantona and David Beckham: Both players used to play for Manchester United wearing no.7 jersey, which is given to the most iconic player.

Though it wasn't my first time visiting Old Trafford, I got goose bumps again and even got a little bit of nervous tension.

We, the tour group, were told about Old Trafford's histories, facilities and features by the guide.

The Old Trafford is located in Stretford, Manchester. The most enthusiastic fans have occupied this part of seats.

I could see most parts of the stadium. I could even enter the VIP areas and changing room where I felt like I became a member of the great team.

I had a great time and I’ve been thrilled to bits, ahead of Monday night football 'Manchester United vs Chelsea FC' at Old Trafford.

Thanks to the Manchester Academy of English, I could get a ticket for the game and I'm going to make the most of tonight!
