#SpotlightOn: UA92 Players and Media Centre

To maintain a productive working community, your employees need to feel inspired, energised and motivated, and a great way to do so is organise off-site meetings.

The UA92 Players and Media Centre is a modern facility – and isn’t just for sports journalists, as the venue offers a wide variety of flexible space.

In this month’s edition, we focus on the Players’ Lounge and Press Gallery, an alternative space for meetings and events.


If you’re looking for event space for medium to large sized groups, the UA92 Players and Media Centre has a number of rooms which can be tailored to your event requirements.

The Players’ Lounge is a versatile suite that can accommodate groups of up to 60. While offering perfect space for larger meetings, the space can also be combined with the Press Gallery for larger events, providing breakout space.

Get your employees engaged and promote effective communication by using the built-in LCD projector and plasma screen for presentations, and soak up the stunning views of the famous Lancashire Cricket pitch.

If you’re looking for a larger space, which can accommodate 100 delegates, the Press Gallery could provide the perfect solution for your next event.

Immerse yourself in the room where international journalists take their place to report on some of the most famous games in world cricket and inspire your team with views of the hallowed turf. If you need to command total focus from your delegates, the gallery offers full blackout blinds to provide an undisturbed setting.

Ideal for seminars and lectures, the Press Gallery offers tiered seating, with each desk featuring power sockets to allow your team to stay engaged and take notes. The room also includes a large plasma screen, perfect for presentations and holding the attention of a large group.

Over the last five years, there has been a huge shift in the perception of wellbeing, and at Emirates Old Trafford, we have a variety of food options to fuel the body and mind. Whether you’re after a healthy and delicious menu, or a more traditional street food platter, we can work with our Executive Head Chef to create a bespoke menu with your needs in mind.

Why not get into the spirit of summer and take advantage of our Summer Sizzler offer? For just £35* per delegate, enjoy a selection of fresh fruit smoothies, afternoon ice creams and a barbecue style buffet lunch including burgers, grilled chicken and hot dogs, that will really get your delegates tastebuds tingling, when booking and holding your event between 17 July and 31 August.

You will also receive a fully supported package including AV equipment, and expert on-site assistance with one of our dedicated event managers, who will take the organisational reins and make sure that your event runs as smoothly and efficiently as possible.
If you’re looking for overnight accommodation for your next event, or perhaps you’re hosting a residential conference, the award-winning Hilton Garden Inn is our onsite four-star hotel. Boasting 150 rooms, 80 of which are pitch facing with balconies, the hotel also offers a Caffè Nero and Garden Grille restaurant and bar, where guests can enjoy a fresh, cooked to order breakfast to set them up for the day ahead.

Situated just three miles from the city centre, Emirates Old Trafford is easily accessible by car and public transport too, with a Metrolink stop directly behind the stadium, and 600 on-site car parking spaces.
