Good news for all jet-setting Manchester United fans, Marriott International has entered into a “multi-year” partnership with the football club. Members of Marriott’s travel program, Marriott Bonvoy can now purchase or bid for exclusive experiences with Manchester United with their points.
It’s not just tickets to matches — there are also VIP seats for games, “meet the player” sessions, and even super-exclusive meet-and-greets and access to training sessions. Highlights for the possible experiences include the chance to welcome the team as they arrive at a stadium for a match; and a day spent shadowing the first team’s kit manager — and help them prepare the match kit.
Shares Alan Tsui, Vice President, Digital, Loyalty and Portfolio Marketing, Marriott: “Our partnership with Manchester United drives our members’ passion for sports by providing VIP access to the games and opportunities to be closer to their sporting idols.”
While tickets for the Manchester United Pre-Season Tour Match vs. Inter Milan in Singapore have already been sold out, upcoming packages include match tickets at the club’s home ground of Old Trafford; and VIP hospitality tickets for a pre-season friendly match between Manchester United and AC Milan at the Principality Stadium in Cardiff, UK. The experience includes food and drink before the match, and prime seats to watch the game.
