Gallery: Trophy in Brazil

The United Trophy Tour, delivered by DHL, began its five-month journey in Brazil last week, visiting iconic locations in Rio de Janeiro and Sao Paulo.

Hundreds of fans came out to see the Barclays Premier League trophy and meet Reds legend Denis Irwin at Rio’s Christ The Redeemer statue on Wednesday.

United later visited the famous Maracana Stadium, venue for the 2014 World Cup final, as well as taking the silverware into the community, stopping in the city’s Morro dos Prazeres favela.

"Touching the trophy was amazing," aspiring 17-year-old footballer Pedro Henrique Sa told O Dia. "Things like that almost never happen in the favelas. I'm so happy."

Two days later the club received another warm welcome at the Ramos de Azevedo Square in Sao Paulo. Click the photo above to see a selection of photos from the two cities.

The Latin American leg of the worldwide tour, which will travel 67,000 miles, to 24 countries and more than 30 cities, continues this week in Chile, Ecuador and Mexico.
