Manchester United’s Aon Training Complex at Carrington, Manchester, is a secure facility and access is restricted to players, staff and authorised visitors only. Training sessions cannot be viewed by the general public.
Birch Road leading to the complex is a private road, but fans wanting to catch a glimpse of Manchester United’s players arriving in their cars for training stand at the entrance or near the barrier where Isherwood Road turns into Birch Road. Sometimes players will stop for photographs and autographs, but to discourage profiteering, signs make it clear that merchandise will not be signed.
Some players arrive through the second entrance off Sinderland Lane, but the club has prohibited any stopping there to avoid road safety issues.
