Fans from Singapore enjoyed the ultimate Manchester United experience this month, thanks to the club’s on-going partnership with Maybank.
The group travelled to Manchester following a promotional campaign which invited fans to sign up to the new United credit card with Maybank. Four winners who participated in Maybank Singapore’s recent ‘Top Spender Campaign’ were given the opportunity to attend the experience with a guest.
On Friday 14 September, the guests had exclusive behind-the-scenes access to Carrington, followed by a photograph and signing session with the first-team squad. They then enjoyed a rare chance to watch the players train ahead of the fixture against Wigan Athletic.
The following day, United welcomed the party to Old Trafford, where they were treated to the ultimate matchday experience, which included a top-class pre-match meal and seats in their 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.
Shirley Seow, one of the guests on the trip, said: "As an owner of the Maybank Manchester United card, I feel so privileged to have been selected for this trip to Old Trafford.
"It is indeed a dream come true for me and for my son, who is an ardent fan of Manchester United. We were so awe-struck by the magnificent stadium as well as the luxurious experience we had at the Centennial Club suite.
"With all the warm hospitality from Maybank and Manchester United, we had a great time watching the match and shopping at the Megastore. And we take loads of wonderful memories of Old Trafford back with us to Singapore. Thank-you to Maybank for fulfilling our dreams."
Karen Low, Maybank’s Head of Cards & Payments, Consumer Banking, added: "The Maybank Manchester United card is all about bringing our card-members closer to the team, which is why we sent lucky winners to Old Trafford to meet the United players.
