Which is the nearest train station?

Alternatively, you can also get the Metrolink tram from both Manchester Piccadilly and Victoria mainline stations. However do please note, there is a rail strike planned by the RMT union on the day of the fixture so there will be a very limited train service, please check before you travel.
