The children hail from countries all across the globe, including Brazil, China, South Africa, South Korea, the United States, and more. Aged 10 – 13, the lucky kids were chosen as part of the “What Do You #PlayFor?” campaign that Chevy started to bring fans even closer to the sport. You can get to know each of the 11 kids over at www.ChevroletFC.com.
“Enabling these children to live the dream of being on the Old Trafford pitch with the Manchester United first team is an unprecedented and dramatic way to celebrate our global partnership with the club and our mission to spread the power of play around the world,” said Tim Mahoney, chief marketing officer, Global Chevrolet. “Watching them walk onto the pitch is sure to inspire football fans everywhere, and certainly will be special for their families and friends, as well as everyone at Chevrolet and Manchester United.”
Before running onto the pitch on Saturday, the kids will also be attending Man U’s Soccer School, meeting club legends, and getting a tour of Old Trafford stadium.
“We are delighted to welcome such a diverse lineup of mascots to Old Trafford,” said Richard Arnold, Manchester United Group managing director. “This is the first time our mascots have travelled from such a wide range of countries and the occasion truly demonstrates the Club’s global fan base and worldwide appeal. It is rare for 11 mascots to lead out the team, and their inclusion shows both Manchester United and Chevrolet’s desire to mark this very special day.”
