1892-93 Was the club’s first season in the First Division. Originally known as Newton Heath LYR Football Club, in 1902 the club was served with a winding up order for debts of £2000. Club captain, Harry Stafford seeked 4 businessmen to invest £500 each. These business men changed the clubs name to Manchester United in April 1902, also changing the clubs home colours from green and gold to red, white and black. United moved into their current stadium Old Trafford in 1910. Between the years of 1941 and 1949, United played their home games at Maine Road, home to rivals Manchester City, due to Old Trafford being damaged in WW2.

In 2019, Man United were worth £3.15bn, making them the 3rd most valuable club in World Football. Controversial owners, the Glazer family, listed United on the New York Stock Exchange from 2012. However they retain overall ownership of the club.

Fact: On 20th November 1880, Manchester United (Newton Heath LYR Football Club at the time) played their first recorded football match, a 6-0 defeat to Bolton Wanderers reserves.
