Manchester United has not had the best start to
the season and this weekend they'll take on current Premier League
leaders Liverpool, who are already 15 points ahead of them in the table.
While this could make for uncomfortable viewing,
Marriott has teamed up with Manchester United to ensure that at
least four fans will be able to watch the game a little more
comfortably than normal with the 'Seat of Dreams'.
Debuting this Sunday at the Manchester United vs Liverpool game,
with support from Wes Brown and Park Ji-Sung, the
Seat of Dreams will give fans at every game the chance to
experience match day from a coveted vantage point in the
stadium while enjoying special perks including complimentary food
and drinks, early entry to the stadium, and the opportunity to
meet Manchester United Legends.
The Seat of Dreams will host four fans at every
home game and will be awarded at random through a complimentary
upgrade to their existing match ticket.
Official Hotel Partner
The debut of the Seat of Dreams marks the
kick-off of a larger relationship between Manchester United and
Marriott Hotels, with the hotel brand becoming the club’s
first-ever Official Hotel Partner.
“Marriott Hotels knows
that surroundings have a major impact on how we view and take
inspiration from the world, and the Seat of Dreams is our way of
offering fans a one-of-a-kind experience when watching their
beloved team,” said Mara Hannula, Vice President Brand Marketing
for Marriott Hotels. “Through this partnership we are proud to
create exciting new fan experiences both at Old Trafford and at
our hotels around the world.”
The Seat of Dreams will be featured at the
Club’s #ILOVEUNITED events around the globe to give fans the
chance to see what this unique vantage point is like – no matter
how far away they are from Old Trafford.
Viewing parties held at
Marriott Hotels around the world will feature Manchester United
Legend appearances and special Manchester United-themed F&B menus. Manchester United-themed amenities and suites will
also be made available in early 2020 at the Manchester Marriott
Victoria and Albert Hotel.
Back at Old Trafford, the brand has
created a hospitality suite modelled after its signature M Club,
the brand’s 24/7 business lounge for Marriott Bonvoy Elite members
that is featured at nearly 100 Marriott Hotels around the world.
The suite will offer VIP access to all of Manchester United’s home
games throughout the season, with executive seating and
complimentary food and drinks.
