Tuesday 23 February 2021 09:30

Manchester United’s official logistics partner, DHL, has created a virtual Old Trafford to celebrate fans’ support for the team and surprise them with amazing prizes and once-in-a-lifetime experiences.

The season-long campaign, 'A World United', invites the club’s global fans to ‘take their seat’ in a virtual Old Trafford stadium. Each entrant is given a unique seat number and is entered into a monthly prize draw. Lucky winners have enjoyed virtual hangouts with first-team players and club legends and have received personalised signed shirts and merchandise packages including all three first-team kits.

Since 2011, DHL has been the official logistics partner of Manchester United and has strived to connect fans around the world with the club. Winners of 'A World United' prizes so far this season have come from all corners of the globe. Here is what some of them have said:


"To speak to Man United players was an amazing, dream experience. I really do appreciate the opportunity."


"It was amazing. So many good questions and some better answers from the players. It was a unique experience and I’m very thankful for that. Thank you so much for giving me the chance."


"It was really an exciting and wonderful experience to speak with the players. It was an occasion to treasure. Thank you again for making it happen."

Manchester United’s Director of Partnerships, Sean Jefferson, comments:

"DHL are global leaders in their industry, uniting the world through logistics. At such a challenging time for people across the globe, DHL has created some truly unique and uplifting experiences designed to deliver much sought-after joy and excitement for fans around the world."

DHL’s Global Sponsorship Director, Elliott Santon, comments:

"We are incredibly proud to partner with English football’s most successful club, and one which means so much to so many people. Connecting fans together across the world by delivering unforgettable experiences, particularly during these challenging times, is a true privilege for DHL and it is heart-warming to see so many people taking their seat in the virtual Theatre of Dreams."

Over 70,000 fans have already taken their seat in DHL’s virtual Old Trafford and this month DHL is once again delivering a once-in-a-lifetime prize to a lucky winner; the chance to take on first-team players at PES and win a PS5 console.
