Manchester United - news, history of football club.

Manchester United Football Club is an English professional football club, reputed to be the most popular club in the world with over 75 million fans. The club is based in Old Trafford, Greater Manchester.

United were originally called Newton Heat and played in green and gold when they were founded in 1878 by the Carriage and Wagon department of the Lancashire and Yorkshire Railway (LYR) depot at Newton Heath. The club changed its name to Manchester United in 1902 and moved to Old Trafford in 1910.

In 1958, eight United player died as a result of the Munich Air Disaster.

Alex Ferguson took charge of 1500 matches during his time as manager (1986–2013).

In July 2012, Manchester United was ranked first by Forbes magazine in its list of the ten most valuable sports team brands, valuing the Manchester United brand at $2.23 billion.

In January 2013, the club became the first sports team in the world to be valued at $3 billion. Forbes Magazine valued the club at $3.3 billion – $1.2 billion higher than the next most valuable sports team.

On 19 May 2014, Louis van Gaal became United’s first manager from outside the United Kingdom or Ireland after Ferguson's successor David Moyes was sacked after only 10 months in charge.

Main rivals of Manchester United are Arsenal, Leeds United, Liverpool, and Manchester City, against whom they contest the Manchester derby.

Manchester United have won the most League titles (20) of any English club, a joint record 11 FA Cups, four League Cups, and a record twenty FA Community Shields. The club has also won three European Cups, one UEFA Cup Winners' Cup, one UEFA Super Cup, one Intercontinental Cup, and one FIFA Club World Cup.

Manchester United states that its worldwide fan base includes more than 200 officially recognised branches of the Manchester United Supporters Club (MUSC), in at least 24 countries.

The origin of club's nickname "The Red Devils" has a few conflicting stories. One rumor suggests that during a tour of France in the 1960s the club were branded the Red Devils due to their red kit and Sir Matt Busby liked the name so much he asked for the club to incorporate a devil in the badge. Another story suggests it stems from local rugby Salford. The rugby club were nicknamed the Red Devils and with United formally training in Salford the nickname transferred over.
