Manchester United started work on Monday to replace the Old Trafford pitch by committing to £800,000 part-synthetic surface.
The United ground-staff started to slowly remove the turf which ‘collapsed’ under the weight of heavy rain in December 2012, it will be replaced with a brand new Desso surface which is similar to that used at Wembley Stadium.
The Old Trafford pitch has not been changed since the start of the 2003-2004 season and the ground staff have been working really hard to keep it up to standard during the last five months of the season.
The work will continue through-out June and all be ready to go for the next fixture which is the Rio Ferdinand testimonial on Friday 9th August 2013.
