“This year, we have collaborated with the BFA (Bahrain Football Association) to reach out to sports clubs with the aim of supporting local talent and help young players prepare for Bahrain’s national team of the future. We hope this collaboration will enable us to contribute to Bahrain’s footballing future.
“We are proud to welcome and host Manchester United ambassador Peter Schmeichel. Renowned as the “World’s Best Goalkeeper” in 1992 and 1993, he is truly an inspirational figure for all aspiring footballers and remains a familiar face in Manchester.”
The VIVA Manchester United Soccer Schools tournament is being run in conjunction with telecommunications partner VIVA at the BFA's training facilities on 25 and 26 April.
The successful programme is now in its fourth year and forms part of a wider fan engagement initiative between United and VIVA which offers supporters the opportunity to win "money can't buy experiences".
