EPL: Sir Ratcliffe keen on building new stadium for Manchester United

Sir Jim Ratcliffe has announced his plans to build a new stadium and move Manchester United from the old Old Trafford.

The British billionaire believes that a modern stadium would benefit the northern region of England and could help rejuvenate south Manchester. Ratcliffe is even considering seeking government funding for the project.

In a recent interview with BBC sports editor Dan Roan, Ratcliffe, who recently acquired a stake in the club, stressed the need to address the issues with Old Trafford.

He suggested either renovating the existing stadium or constructing a new one.

Ratcliffe, 71, believes that the north of England deserves a national stadium and is excited about the possibilities it could bring.

He envisions the new venue hosting events like the FA Cup semi-finals and the Champions League final, which he sees as a worthwhile investment.

Old Trafford’s last Champions League final was in 2003, underlining the potential for a new stadium to bring high-profile matches back to the region.

Ratcliffe’s vision reflects a desire for modernization and equity in sports infrastructure investment, aiming to enhance Manchester United’s facilities and the broader sports landscape in the north of England.
