BIDV launches debit card

BIDV, Manchester United’s official financial services partner in Vietnam has today celebrated the launch of its first official United debit card, exclusively available to its customers in the football fanatical country.

The card follows on from the bank's highly successful co-branded Manchester United credit card, which launched last season and was popular amongst the club’s 26 million Vietnamese followers.

The uniquely designed debit card has been printed in red and features the club’s famous crest. The vibrant design gives fans the ideal way of pledging their allegiance to the Premier League champions. However, much more than just a well-designed card, the BIDV United debit card also offers cardholders some fantastic benefits. These include discounts on United merchandise, purchased via its online store, as well as special banking offers and incentives from BIDV. Cardholders will also be entered into regular prize draws that could see them win a once-in-a-lifetime trip to Old Trafford to see the Reds in action, behind-the-scenes access to watch the first team train at its Aon Training Complex, as well as merchandise signed by the players.

Manchester United’s group managing director, Richard Arnold comments: "Manchester United is very pleased to be working with BIDV on this great new product. The Manchester United BIDV debit card is the only one of its kind available in Vietnam and will offer our 26 million fans in the country a chance to become close to the club they support."

To celebrate the card launch, BIDV has introduced a football competition across Ho Chi Minh City, Da Nang and Hanoi with the overall winners taking home a prize fund of 400 million Vietnamese Dong (VND).
