In partnership with VIVA Bahrain, Manchester United welcomed two lucky prize winners from the Kingdom of Bahrain to attend the Liverpool match at Old Trafford on 11 February.
Ali Al Majid and Yusuf Al Haram won the trip thanks to the innovative campaign from VIVA Bahrain in which fans were invited to subscribe to a live United SMS update service.
These fans were then automatically entered into a raffle to win one of 40 all-expenses-paid trips to see their heroes play at Old Trafford.
The two lucky winners could not believe their luck when they were told they had won and certainly were given a day to remember. Not only did they witness a game between two of football’s greatest rivals at one of the world’s most famous clubs, they even got to sit in Sir Alex’s dugout seat and walk through the players’ tunnel to the pitch.
Mr Al Majid said: “The atmosphere of the game was just incredible. I feel so fortunate to have won this trip and watched this exciting match between Manchester United and Liverpool. It was a massive match and a really great trip.”
Ala Ghawas, VIVA representative, said: “At VIVA Bahrain we always thrive to make our customers' dreams come true and this campaign is a real demonstration of that.
"To have the opportunity to experience the thrill of watching Manchester United play at Old Trafford is the stuff dreams are made of and we want our customers to be given the chance to live every moment of it.”
