New "security intelligence" has led Manchester United to ban tablets and laptops from the Old Trafford stadium located in Old Trafford, Greater Manchester. Greater Manchester Police will not be involved in the ban, and includes both smaller and larger tablets. Smartphones that are 5.9" x 3.9" or smaller will still be allowed into the arena without a problem.
Stadium officials noted it would be "impractical" for each fan to power up tablets and laptops as they enter the arena - unlike at airports, where passengers will be able to quickly show that they have a legitimate electronic device.
