Manchester United ban fans from bringing iPad, iPad mini to home games

Manchester United have announced a ban on usage of all large electronic devices at Old Trafford during home matches this season. The electronic devices are the latest items to join the list of prohibited items at the stadium, with the club stating that any device that exceeds dimensions of 150mm x 100mm will not be allowed into the venue, including the iPad and iPad mini.

As a result of the latest security advice, large electronic devices including laptops and tablets will be added to the existing list of prohibited items for matchdays at Old Trafford.

Manchester United has said that the measures were in reaction to the "latest security intelligence" and "are designed to ensure the continued safety and security of all spectators."

While tablets are banned from the Theatre of Dreams, smartphones will be allowed in the premises, provided they don't exceed the maximum permitted dimensions. With the ban in place, fans attending the Red Devils' home matches will have a less obstructed view from the stands. All that's left for the club to do now is to figure out a way to get back to winning ways of old.
