The recent ‘Manchester United Experience’ event, held in partnership with Maybank, has been hailed as a huge success by guests and organisers as a group of six guests from Malaysia enjoyed a weekend to remember at Old Trafford and Carrington.
The guests arrived in Manchester on 9 February, following a promotional campaign which invited United fans in Malaysia to sign up to the new Manchester United credit card with Maybank. Three lucky card holders were selected at random to attend the experience with their partners.
The day began with a look behind the scenes at Carrington, followed by a photograph and signing session with the first team squad. The guests were then given the exclusive opportunity to watch the players train on the outdoor facilities, ahead of the fixture against Liverpool.
On 11 February, United welcomed the guests to Old Trafford where they were treated to the ultimate matchday experience, which included a luxurious pre-match meal and seats in their very own private hospitality suite.
During the visit, the prize winners were also invited to explore the first team dressing room, sit in Sir Alex’s dugout seat and walk down the famous players’ tunnel. The tour ended with a look round the museum.
Darren Tan, who attended the event, said: "I'm so grateful and happy for the exclusive opportunity to watch the match live at Old Trafford. It's an experience I will cherish for a lifetime."
And Mr B Ravintharan of Maybank said: "It was indeed a great experience for Maybank and our cardmembers. We are looking forward to providing more of these exclusive opportunities and first class hospitality at Old Trafford to our Maybankard Manchester United cardmembers."
