Inside the Foundation's heart-warming Dream Day
The Manchester United men's team has taken time out to make special and everlasting memories for fans at our Foundation’s latest Dream Day.
The heart-warming experience has now taken place twice this season, with fans travelling from across the UK and Ireland to meet their United heroes and watch training.
Delighted to attend the event for the second time this season, Luke Shaw said: “For us as players, it’s really special to come here, meet the fans and put some smiles on their faces.
“It’s amazing to see them and meet them, it means a lot to us. When you come in the room, you do feel that special connection with them, especially with them being United fans and caring a lot about the club.”

“We know how much it means for our supporters to come here, meet us and watch our training session, especially while the sun is shining. As players, we enjoy being a part of the Dream Days, and we look forward to these experiences every season.”
“I’m really happy to spend this time here and give something back. They’ve come here to Carrington to see us training and see our day-to-day; it’s a great experience for everyone.”
United fan Meer, from Manchester, was thrilled to meet his heroes. He said: “To meet all the players - especially Marcus Rashford - it’s been overwhelming.
“Marcus inspired me a lot because he showed me that I can’t give up. I’m so grateful to Manchester United, to go through a difficult period and then come here, it’s a dream come true."
Alisha, aged 16 from Manchester, was overjoyed by the experience. She said: “Today has been surreal and brought me positivity. It’s really a once-in-a-lifetime experience I will always remember, especially watching them train, it’s just motivating. Today was amazing because since I was young, I’ve enjoyed watching United play.”
