#IAMUNITED heads to India

Manchester United will be celebrating the 20th league title by hosting #IAMUNITED, presented by Airtel, in New Delhi with ex-Red Dwight Yorke.

Following on from the success of its previous #IAMUNITED events in New York, Kuwait and Jakarta, the club has teamed up with Airtel, its official telecommunications partner in India, to bring the title celebration to India.

The fan party, which takes place on 12 May at Blue Frog, Mehrauli, will give some of the club’s 35 million Indian followers the chance to watch United collect the Premier League trophy after a screening of the home game against Swansea. 

During #IAMUNITED, presented by Airtel, fans will also get the chance to meet three-time league winner Yorke, who is supporting the event. The ex-United striker will be sharing stories about his time at the club and what it feels like to lift the coveted trophy.

With 1,500 free tickets for the event to give away, the club is challenging the lucky fans who attend to create an atmosphere to challenge that at Old Trafford.

Over 48 million Indian fans tuned into a United game last season, but #IAMUNITED, presented by Airtel, will give them a unique way to watch their favourite team. Starting at 19:00 local time, fans will be treated to various pre- and post-match entertainment in the build-up to a momentous occasion for both the club and its supporters.

Fans wishing to apply for a ticket must visit between Monday 29 April and Tuesday 7 May, where they will be entered into a ballot. The 1,500 fans will then be selected at random.
