Manchester United Bans Tablets, Laptops at Home Matches
The club said it was reacting to "security intelligence," adding the restriction was in line with new checks on electronic equipment at airports.
It said that unlike at airports, it would be "impractical" at the stadium to check the devices were genuine by asking for them to be powered up.
Greater Manchester Police said it was not involved with the ban "in any way".
A statement on the club's site says the ban extends to large and small tablets "including iPad minis", as well as larger electronic devices.
Smartphones are still permitted as long as their dimensions are smaller than 15cm by 10cm (5.9in by 3.9in).
