GG Hospitality has announced that the opening date of Gary Neville and Ryan Giggs’ Hotel Football will be delayed until 2 March 2015.

The 133-bedroom football-themed hotel was previously planned to open on 8 December this year.

GG Hospitality has pushed back the opening date to allow for ‘enhancing the conference and banqueting facilities’. It will also use the extra time to enlarge the hotel’s rooftop five-a-side football pitch and event space​ by more than 50 per cent.

A spokesperson for GG Hospitality said:  “We have worked closely with the contractor every step of the way and we have decided to delay the opening of the hotel until 2 March so we can further develop the hotel’s unique features, beyond our original plans.

“We want to ensure the supporters and hotel guests have an unforgettable experience when they visit us and this additional preparation time will ensure this. It’ll be worth the wait.”

The opening of the hotel’s Old Trafford Supporters Club will also be pushed back until 2 March.
