Event description

Description

Calling all Man Utd fans, especially those coming in from abroad (and supporters of any other team, of course) interested in the club’s formidable history.

We are hosting our ever-popular and endlessly-fascinating “Story of Manchester United” walking tour on the morning of Saturday 24 February at 11am, starting at the National Football Museum, the weekend of the United-Chelsea match.

At this stage we hope that the kick-off, which hasn’t been arranged yet, isn’t at 12.30pm that Saturday! If it is we shall move our kick-off.

•••

What the tour entails

We will hear how:
• The world’s most famous football team (no, not Real Madrid, you turnip) began as a railway works outfit in north Manchester.
• Both Bobby Charlton and George Best arrived in Manchester at the nearby station, and how their different experiences affected their progression.
• The corrupt newspaper boss Robert Maxwell tried to buy the club, and how lucky they were he didn’t.
• The playful antics of George Best drove Matt Busby to distraction.
• United nearly never became United – Manchester Central and Manchester Celtic were the preferred choices.
• United nearly never became United, saved only by the wandering behaviour of a dog called Major.
