Do you know if you can move between sections at the manchester united, ie from Distinti Nord Est (Gate 45 Block 45AD) to Curva Nord (Gate 48 Block 48AD), can you walk through underneath the stands as there is a perspex screen in the stands?

There will probably be perspex screens in the stands and stewards checking tickets on the individual entries on the concourse, like in Moscow.

However, one tactic is for two people to go up. Then one comes down with two tickets and another goes up with him, until everyone is there.

Cheers, goood idea, but I got told that the sections underneath the stands, betweeen the 2 Distinti Nords and the Curva are blocked off. So you have to come up the stairs in the corrrect section where your ticket is allocated, Not like wembley where you can walk round. (So only way is over the perspex) Any idea if this is correct? Thanks for your help
