Manchester United are known as the Red Devils. Sir Matt Busby settled upon the Red Devils after watching Salford rugby club tour France with this nickname, whilst wearing red shirts. Busby liked the intimidating name and a devil logo soon began to appear on club merchandise, such as the official match programme and Man United scarves.
Manchester, in England's North Country, is one of Britain's coolest cities. This once industrial city has reinvented itself as a truly contemporary metropolis, with modern landmark buildings such as the Lowry Centre, a thriving art and culture scene, and world-class sport. It's often cited as the world's first industrialised city, and elements of Manchester's industrial past can be found as you travel throughout the city. It's this dramatic mix of old and new that gives Manchester its unique character.
