During the Second World War, Manchester United’s main stand at their iconic Old Trafford home was ruined after serial bombings around the area. The dressing room and offices were also destroyed. The Red Devils were left homeless until neighbors Manchester City stepped in. At a time of need, rivalries were put aside and the team from the red side of Manchester called Maine Road home for four seasons as Old Trafford underwent repairs.
