Manchester United Football Club was founded in 1878 as Newton Heath L&YR, a team comprising employees of the Lancashire & Yorkshire Railway.  In 1902  Newton Heath was renamed  Manchester United and the club went on to become one of the most famous and successful in English and World football.  The club has been English  champions 18 times, a record they jointly hold with Liverpool, and have won the FA Cup a record 11 times.  They have been European champions three times, and have won the League Cup four times.  In addition the club has won the Charity Shield outright 13 times and jointly 4 times, and have won several other European and World competitions.  Manchester United play at Old Trafford an all seater stadium, which has a seating capacity of almost 76,000 spectators, the highest  of any stadium in England apart from Wembley.  Old Trafford is widely known as the Theatre of Dreams, a name given to it by one of the clubs legendary players Sir Bobby Charlton, and home matches are invariably sold out. Manchester United have a reputation for playing  exiting attacking football  which  has brought them huge success under great managers such as Sir Matt Busby and the present manager sir Sir Alex Ferguson.
