Legendary fan event returns to India for first time in four years Fans in India voted for Kolkata to host the next event. Club legends Wes Brown and Mikael Silvestre will host huge live match screenings. With the pandemic postponing plans for an in-market match screening in February 2021, the club held a special virtual event which gave fans in India the opportunity to decide where the next live, in-person #ILOVEUNITED event would take place.

Of the six shortlisted Indian cities, Kolkata was the clear winner with 33% of the vote. #ILOVEUNITED Kolkata will be a three-week celebration of Manchester United in India, with locally tailored content across club channels such as a special edition of the award-winning UTD Podcast and exclusive interviews with some famous United fans from around the world.

The campaign culminates with the live match screening, which starts from 4pm at Big Lawn Nicco Park, Kolkata, featuring United Legends Wes Brown and Mikael Silvestre, who will be meeting fans throughout the day.

Both Brown and Silvestre enjoyed stellar careers at United, winning five Premier League titles each and conquering Europe in the UEFA Champions League, before ending their careers playing in India with Kerala Blasters and Chennaiyin respectively.

The fans taking part in #ILOVEUNITED will star in MUTV’s Matchday Live coverage of the Premier League match against Newcastle United, broadcast globally across Manchester United channels. Fans will be able to enjoy the full Manchester United experience in the build-up to the match, from giveaways and unique photo opportunities to football challenges and interactive games.

Manchester United’s Managing Director, Alliances and Partnerships, Victoria Timpson, said: “We love visiting our fans in India, so it was disappointing when the pandemic led to the postponement of the planned #ILOVEUNITED event last February.

“But it gave us the opportunity to show our fans in India how much we value their support and input by asking them to decide the next host city for #ILOVEUNITED in India. “We’ve enjoyed great support in Kolkata for many years and look forward to bringing the excitement of a live fan event back to the city and sharing Manchester United’s match day with thousands of passionate fans.”

Rick Sinha represented Kolkata on a special ‘#ILOVEUNITED Fan Panel’ during last season’s interactive virtual experience, enabling his city to host the next #ILOVEUNITED event in India. Rick said: “Kolkata is one of those cities in the country where I feel football is more popular than cricket and it has always had a big role to play in the history of Indian football.

“The United fan community in Kolkata has also proudly supported the club for many, many years and it also varies across different age groups and generations.

“It gave me great pride to represent United fans in my city at the #ILOVEUNITED Fan Panel and it felt even better to win and play my part in bringing this amazing event to Kolkata. I can’t wait to be there and enjoy the match with thousands of other reds.” #ILOVEUNITED Kolkata is free to attend.
