Man Utd build pop-up dressing room for opponents next to Old Trafford car park

Man Utd have erected a temporary pop-up dressing room for away teams near to the car park at Old Trafford.

The new building has been added in line with the Premier League’s coronavirus protocol, and has already been tested by West Brom last week.

Visiting players will be able to change in the facility prior to and after matches.

As reports The Mail, the facility is located at the top of the tunnel at Old Trafford, which backs on to the car park where team coaches arrive.

Inside are two large changing rooms, built-in showers and an office, designed to keep personnel a safe distance from each other as an added precaution against COVID-19.

West Brom stars were the first to try out the new accommodation for their friendly with United on Friday, and were able to get straight out onto the pitch without entering the main building at Old Trafford.

Teams across the Premier League are now expected to install similar buildings at their stadiums as the season gets set to resume again from Wednesday.

Under the government’s social distancing guidelines, a normal sized changing room is too small to house a squad and backroom team of around 25 people, hence the need for larger facilities.

Two teams will not share the tunnel at the same time when football returns in a bid to keep players apart as much as possible.

Liverpool could even be toasting their title triumph from a temporary changing facility come Monday, if results go their way and they beat Everton at Goodison Park.

United meanwhile will get their first taste of the treatment when they head to Tottenham in their first fixture back on Friday.
