Hotel Football remains majority owned by Singaporean business man Peter Lime and former Manchester United players Gary Neville, Ryan Giggs, Nicky Butt, Paul Scholes and Philip Neville. GG Hospitality, the management company owned by the same group, will continue to manage and operate the property.
Situated just a few metres away from Old Trafford, Manchester United’s home ground, the experiential 123-room hotel marks Tribute Portfolio’s second opening in the UK.
Hotel Football was created in 2015 by the Class of ’92: Gary Nevill, Ryan Giggs, Paul Scholes, Nicky Butt and Phillip Nevill, a group of internationally respected former Manchester United players, considered legends of the game. Their ambition and dedication to heritage, quality and creating a winning team are at the hotel’s core, from top-quality bed linen and rainforest showers, to the 70 artworks created by local University of Salford students.
Hotel Football features unique touches that set it apart from the ordinary. Inspired by it’s enviable location next to the stadium, all 133 bright and modern guest room’s feature nods to the owners joint passion for football, including bespoke Class of ’92 amenities. Room categories include King, Stadium View, Squad – perfect for families of up to four – and most recently The Class of ’92 rooms. Steeped with memorabilia, The Class of ’92 rooms feature the ultimate view of Old Trafford, signed shirts, Champions League medals and framed snapshots of the founders’ most memorable footballing moments.
On the bustling ground floor, the fun and relaxed Cafe Football brings together stadium visitors and hotel guests alike to enjoy a menu that elevates wholesome and traditional dishes inspired by the game. Artwork by Manchester artist and illustrator Stanley Chow are hung between screens showing matche’s, and family touches continue with the Cafe Football sticker book for children– a nostalgic throw to childhood days.
