How our official app brought fans across the globe together

Thursday 03 September 2020 14:00

As the world stayed apart, we remained United. Here, at Manchester United, we want to send a huge thank you to all of our fans from across the world, for being there, while you couldn’t be here.

Our return to Old Trafford was a moment we had all been waiting for. It was much anticipated by players and fans alike. But it wasn’t football quite as we knew it…
In true United fashion, you made our return to the Theatre of Dreams a momentous occasion. We knew you couldn’t physically be there – cheering, singing and supporting – so we used the Official Manchester United app to make sure your voices were heard.
Thanks for your unwavering support, Reds!
Via the powers of modern technology, you sent us your photos and videos demonstrating your support for the Reds and to be a part of this new matchday experience – and we were not disappointed with the response!
Using our Official App, over 40,000 supporters uploaded their photos, to be part of the giant fan mosaic, which was proudly stretched across the ground.
You also sent us your videos, for the chance to be featured #OnThePitch in the digital boards around the ground, so players could see real-time fans cheering them on. We were inundated with your songs, chants and messages of support, with many featuring on the boards and across other Manchester United digital channels, helping to create that all-important United matchday build-up and experience.

Your loyal following certainly helped to push Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men on in the tense, final weeks of the 2019/20 campaign and the Reds didn’t lose any of the five matches we played at Old Trafford after Project Restart (three wins, two draws).
As the start of the new season draws ever closer, make sure you’ve downloaded the Manchester United Official App to stay up to date with everything from the latest club news and exclusive interviews, to live scores and interactive quizzes.

Get ready for next season. Our 2020/21 home and away kits are available now from United Direct.
