Visa card for Singapore

Manchester United has teamed up with Maybank to launch the official Manchester United Platinum Visa card for supporters in Singapore.

Much more than a standard Visa card, the Manchester United Platinum Visa enables fans in Singapore to interact with the club in a whole new way with regular rewards and privileges, including earning points every time the team wins a league match. There will also be the chance to win a once in a lifetime opportunity to watch United play at Old Trafford. In addition to these brilliant rewards, cardholders will also receive up to 10 per cent discount off Manchester United merchandise from the Nike Megastore in Singapore.

United’s commercial director Richard Arnold welcomes the launch, saying:

"We are always overwhelmed by the response we receive from our fans in Singapore. Last season over 3 million fans viewed a Manchester United game, a figure that is set to double by the end of this season. The passion, loyalty and enthusiasm of our Singapore fans is something we recognise and our relationship with Maybank and the launch of the Manchester United Visa will allow us to interact with them. This partnership is an important part of our ongoing plans to engage with the club’s fans around the world."

Alan Lau, head of consumer banking for Maybank Singapore, comments:

"No other sport draws Singaporeans together as much as football does and we are proud to be partnering Manchester United, one of the world's top football clubs. In considering the privileges that come with the card, we want to excite members with experiences and premiums that money can’t buy."
