United store opens in China
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer represented the Reds this week at the grand opening of The Manchester United Experience in Macau, China.
The fantastic new three-floor store, located at The Grand Canal Shoppes of The Venetian® Macau Resort-Hotel, gives Asian fans the chance to not only purchase official United and Nike merchandise but also to learn more about the club, its history and its players through an interactive experience.
Meeting one such player for real was a highlight for 30 local teenagers - former striker Solskjaer presented them with souvenirs and shared anecdotes from his illustrious career.
“I'm absolutely thrilled to see the opening of the Manchester United Experience at The Venetian® Macau Resort-Hotel," said Ole Gunnar.
"I hope our spirit will continue to grow in Asia and help local teams scale new heights.”
The Manchester United Experience, opened by Solskjaer and Stephen Weaver, President of Asian Region, Las Vegas Sands Corp, is the latest addition to The Grand Canal Shoppes. Asia’s unique shopping experience boasts over 350 boutique shops, world-class restaurants, bars and cafés and a 1,000-seater international food court.
