Bombing bombs during World War II destroyed most of the stadium; The central tunnel in South Stand is the only remaining part of this stand. Rockin’ the Dog Mom and Aunt Life. After the war, the club received 22,278 pounds of compensation from the War Damage Commission. In addition to the rebuilding of the stadium, the team played home games at Manchester City’s Maine Road; Manchester United has to pay a yard rental fee of £ 5,000 a year, plus a small portion of the fare collected.  One of Old Trafford’s significant upgrades is the roof, first in the Stretford End and then in the North and East stands. Columns supporting the roof obstruct the fans’ vision to be replaced by the key beam structure (cantilever).
