Meet Quinton in Cape Town

Quinton Fortune will be meeting Manchester United fans in Cape Town on Sunday 13 May - courtesy of the club's official integrated telecommunications partner for South and East Africa, MTN.

The former Reds midfielder will be at Mitchell’s Brewery at the V&A Waterfront in Cape Town to attend an exclusive screening of United's crucial final league fixture at Sunderland. Fans will have the chance to speak to Quinton from 14:00 local time and then enjoy the unique experience of watching the thrilling conclusion to the title race with a man who's been there and won it in the past.

Fortune remains a popular figure at the club where he spent seven years playing on the left wing, in central midfield or at left-back, following his transfer from Spanish club Atletico Madrid in August 1999. His effervescent character assured him of a perennial place in the hearts of his friends, peers and United supporters.

Sunday's event is being organised by United's partner MTN, who will also be using the occasion to promote their live match alerts service. This service can be accessed by customers in MTN-serviced regions by sending an SMS with the message “MAN UTD” to 083 123 686.
