Gallery: Irwin in Basel

The penultimate stop of United’s worldwide Trophy Tour, delivered by DHL, was in Basel on Wednesday (26 March).

After visiting Istanbul and Copenhagen earlier in the week, Denis Irwin took the Barclays Premier League trophy to meet fans in Switzerland.

Irwin was a guest of Bulova, the club's official timekeeping partner, at BaselWorld 2014, the leading event for the watch and jewellery industry, along with former team-mate Peter Schmeichel, before Irwin headed to Basel’s impressive cathedral. The Reds legend posed for photos with members of the only United fan club in the country, Swiss Devils, whose secretary Heinz has followed the Reds ever since he spent six months studying in the UK in the 1960s.

Five months and a day since it began its global journey in Rio de Janeiro, United’s Trophy Tour comes to an end in Oslo on Tuesday 1 April. Find out all the details here.
