Nicknamed ‘the Red Devils’, the club was founded as Newton Heath LYR Football Club in 1878, changed its name to Manchester United in 1902 and moved to its current stadium, Old Trafford, in 1910. It currently is one of the biggest clubs in Europe and this is why.
The logo of Manchester United has a special meaning and we’re here to deduce everything. At the top is a ship which symbolises urban trade. At the bottom is the devil with crowns and a staff, a reflection of the nickname Red Devils.This implies the spirit of the devil is solidly behind the club and it will be difficult for them to lose their glory. To the right and left are soccer balls. The balls are placed between the semicircular frames with the words “Manchester United Football Club.”
The shield in United’s crest used to feature the Manchester city arms—a sailing ship on top and three diagonal stripes below. During the 1960s, as the club moved forward from the Munich disaster and the Busby Babes era, manager Matt Busby thought a new nickname was appropriate. He reportedly was inspired by the nearby Salford rugby club, which had been dubbed “Les Diables Rouges” during a 1934 tour of France. United adopted the Red Devils nickname, and in 1970, the devil became part of the logo of the club.
‘Glory glory Man Utd, as the reds go marching on! Or simply ‘glory glory Man Utd’ or GGMU’. This is an extract from the famous Man Utd anthem that could be heard before every game in Old Trafford. GGMU is widely accepted as the club’s motto.
