Many dream of being able to wake up in the stadium of their favorite team. To be able to get up first thing in the morning and see their hallowed ground prior to a big game is something out of a surreal bucket list. Well, that might no longer be such a far-fetched fantasy. Manchester United, are going to offer this opportunity to a fan in a promotion they have done together with the Marriott hotel chain.
Match days at Old Trafford, the home of Manchester United, are always full of fanfare as well as tradition for Red Devils fans. Working alongside Marriott Bonvoy, United is doing something that has never been done in the stadium’s 112-year history and in sports venues around the world.
On Monday, United and the international hotel brand announced a unique partnership that will give fans the chance to win the first-ever overnight stay at Old Trafford. On game day, one lucky fan and guest will have the opportunity to wake up in the Theater of Dreams from the comfort of a converted Marriott Hotels guest room suite overlooking the historic field. The room is meticulously decked out in signature Marriott décor, but also spread with United’s crest, colors and more.
Old Trafford Gets Ready For One Lucky Fan
“Bringing our flagship brand, Marriott hotels, to Old Trafford is just one of the ways we are bringing to life the extraordinary Marriott Bonvoy portfolio through our collaboration with Manchester United, one of the world’s most popular sports teams. said Brian Povinelli, Senior Vice President. President, Brand, Loyalty & Portfolio Marketing, Marriott International said in a statement. “We are delighted to create this hospitality experience at this iconic venue, providing a unique opportunity for fans to wake up in the home of Manchester United on matchday morning.”
Until when does the promotion run?
Heavy was present in Manchester for the official presentation of this campaign.
We also had the opportunity to speak on multiple occasions with former United defender Wes Brown, who is one of the ambassadors for the team and works closely with Marriott Bonvoy on their promotions. There, Wes spoke extensively about his story and how he is working alongside Marriott and the club that he loved since his childhood.
The first “Suite of Dreams” will take place before United’s clash on May 15th against Premier League rivals Chelsea. Additional benefits that the winner of the global draw will win include watching the team train, a behind-the-scenes tour of the stadium, the chance to meet club legends, matchday tickets as well as the top-notch hospitality offered from the hosts.
Three years into this association, the Suite of Dreams is an update on a similar concept that Marriott and United unveiled in 2019. Aptly titled Seat of Dreams, a fan and guest enjoy a memorable moment sitting in a specially designated seat at Old Trafford. Before, during and after select United home games, guests enjoy unlimited food and drinks and the opportunity to interact with retired United legends.
