Bangkok – Manchester United has today confirmed its world renowned large scale fan party, #ILOVEUNITED is coming to Thailand!
Fans in the Thai capital are set to enjoy a special evening of entertainment, giveaways and competitions courtesy of the club’s commercial partners, culminating in a live-match screening of Tottenham Hotspur vs Manchester United.
Global ambassador Bryan Robson, himself a former coach of the Thailand national team, and United legend Mikael Silvestre will both attend the event at CentralWorld on Sunday 14th May.
The former United players will meet fans and sample local culture during their stay in Bangkok, before the main fan viewing party, where they will take part in an on-stage Q and A, share personal anecdotes from their time at the club and give pre and post-match analysis of the game.
Among the activities will be the chance for Thai United fans to win the trip of a lifetime to Old Trafford once they’ve put their footballing skills to the test. A 3v3 tournament on a small-sided pitch will be overseen by Manchester United Soccer Schools coaches. Fans should register their interest by visiting www.manutd.com/Thailand3v3.
