As many teams use the M60 to travel around Manchester to get to the opposition, it is often possible to anticipate when and where heavy traffic will hold teams up if United or City are at home. If we have an away game at Worsley for instance and United are at home we know to allow at least an extra 30 minutes.
To address this we have started adding United’s and City’s home fixtures to our fixture calendar, so captains and players can judge if extra time needs to be allowed. This has already reduced late arrivals by our players and other clubs’ captains might find it useful.
