Fans started gathering at Old Trafford around 1pm and within an hour several thousand had congregated around the ground’s superstore.

That allowed fans access to the Munich Tunnel, approaching the Sir Bobby Charlton Stand, where it is believed, a group of supporters gained access to the stadium via a side “exit” door in the disabled section of the ground.
Police supported stewards in reinforcing a metal gate that had been pulled across to prevent supporters moving closer to the dressing room area but the match officials were reportedly unable to gain access as kickoff approached.

Manchester United fans demonstrating against the club’s Glazer family owners have stormed Old Trafford and protested on the pitch ahead of today’s Premier League fixture against Liverpool. Hundreds of supporters have been pictured inside the stadium two hours before kick-off. The protests had been planned for more than a week in a backlash to United attempting to join the breakaway European Super League.Protests were planned for the forecourt of United’s stadium but there were attempts to get down the Munich tunnel and some managed to force their way into the ground.

Today’s scenes at Old Trafford where hundreds of supporters have invaded the stadium to protest against the Glazers is their fate.
