Trophy Tour in Middle East

Last week United legends Andrew Cole and Lee Sharpe accompanied the Manchester United DHL Champ19ns Trophy Tour around the Middle East.

The first stop was Dubai, which included a visit to a camel farm and the Dubai Duty Free tennis championship, where Cole and Sharpe met world number one Novak Djokovic.

Supporters were also able to have their photo taken with the Barclays Premier League trophy at Burj Khalifa, the world’s highest observation deck with an outdoor terrace.

The tour then moved on to Abu Dhabi, Bahrain and Kuwait, where there were further photo opportunities for fans at city centre shopping malls.

The official supporters’ club in Bahrain came out in force to greet the Reds, while the silverware also appeared at events for club partners VIVA and DHL in Kuwait.
