UNITED. DELIVERED. is back on tour!
DHL’s UNITED. DELIVERED Global Football Tour is set to unite Manchester United fans around the world once again for the 2018/19 season.
Last year's tour began in July 2017 at Old Trafford. Several first-team players enjoyed a kick-around with a very special ball, before sending it on a 351,000 km journey around the world with DHL Express.
Throughout the 2017/18 Premier League season, DHL connected United fans in every corner of the globe through the continuous journey of one football. At each location, a set of match equipment was left behind for the players’ ongoing use.
During the course of the tour, the ball visited some 57 countries where it was played with by more than 1,500 Man Utd fans – as well as DHL Express staff at their football regional cups - in 72 matches.
After travelling the world for 10 months, the DHL UNITED. DELIVERED. ball returned to Old Trafford in May 2018. DHL brought two winning fans and their teams to Manchester for a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, including watching their United heroes beat Watford in the final match of the Premier League season; participating in a Manchester United Soccer Schools training session at the club’s Aon Training Complex; and then playing the final match of the UNITED. DELIVERED. global football tour back where it all began – on the pitch at Old Trafford!
With a partnership activation as successful as this, how could we fail to do it all again? That’s why DHL are excited to announce the delivery of an even bigger and better tour for this season! The global football tour kicked off in August and is delivering the UNITED. DELIVERED. football to even more fans, matches and locations, aiming for over 100 matches around the world.
The 2018/19 Global Football Tour
As in the last tour, all match hosts will receive a legacy kit from DHL, including replica tour ball, goals, cones and wristbands.
“Seeing the delight on the faces of Manchester United fans around the globe when we delivered the special football and match equipment, made us realise the power of being united together in our love for the club,” says Fiona Taag, Head of Global Sponsorship and Europe Marketing Communications at DHL Express.
“It was a no-brainer to launch our Global Football Tour for a second season and deliver to even more passionate fans around the world. Doing what we do best so that fans can play with pride for their club, no matter what football match or where.”
As Official Logistics Partner of Manchester United, DHL will be delivering the ball around the globe so that United fans from all corners of the world can play together – and you can be a part of it!
