FANS heading to the Super League Grand Final are being offered free travel to Old Trafford on Manchester's Metrolink tram service.

Transport for Greater Manchester (TfGM) has made the decision to make travel on the city's tram network free of charge for anyone who produces their Grand Final match ticket.

Altrincham is the nearest Metrolink station to Warrington and from there, fans get get a tram directly to Old Trafford station.

However this is expected to lead to huge demand for Metrolink services before and especially after the match, especially at Old Trafford station.

Spectators are therefore further advised to note alternative Metrolink stations within walking distance of Old Trafford – particularly Trafford Bar and Exchange Quay.

TfGM have also secured free bus travel for match ticket holders from the A580 Park and Ride site on the East Lancs Road all day on Saturday.

Regular buses will operate to and from the city centre where onward Metrolink connections to the game are available.

Additional services will also operate from 2pm and back to the Park & Ride site post-match, secured by TfGM. Services will be operated by First Manchester.

The A580 Park and Ride facility has 250 spaces and is expected to be busy.
