Old Trafford's Hotel Football Delayed
 

HOTEL FOOTBALL, the new 133-bed Old Trafford hotel, conference and event venue by Ryan Giggs and Gary Neville's GG Hospitality company has been pushed back four months.

Initially due to open in November, Hotel Football will now open in early-March 2015.

Hotel Football claims to be the 'world's first dedicated football hotel' with Neville and Giggs hoping that the new hotel and events venue will create up to 200 jobs for Trafford.

According to GG Hospitality, the delay is due to extensions that were not part of the original plan. These include additions to the hotel's event space and an enlarging of the hotel's rooftop five-a-side pitch.

The new hotel will also include the Cafe Football restaurant and bar with a menu overseen by two Michelin starred chef Michael Wignall of The Latymer restaurant in Surrey.

At a recent Manchester Food and Drink Festival event, former Manchester United-star unveiled a menu that will include 'Nev's posh pot noodle', a vimto trifle, and black pudding sausage rolls with homemade baked beans - which Guardian food-critic Jay Rayner called a 'glorious thing that I want to adopt as my third child'.

Gary's brother Phil, and fellow 'Class of '92' members, Paul Scholes and Nicky Butt, are also involved in the building project by Galliford Try on Sir Matt Busby Way.

Hotel Football, which will also become the new home of the Old Trafford Supporters Club, claims to be the 'world's first dedicated football hotel' with Neville and Giggs hoping that the new hotel and events venue will create up to 200 jobs for Trafford.
