Man United Pitch Day

Every weekend, thousands of Manchester United fans turn out in droves to watch their beloved club take centre stage at the Theatre of Dreams, wondering what it would be like to one day pull on the United shirt and play on the hallowed turf; For two of our Year 9 students that dream just became a reality.

Olga and Sajid were invited to take part in a pitch day at Old Trafford recently, thanks to our fantastic partnership with the Man United Community Foundation.

The students were greeted on arrival by United Coaches and taken out to the main pitch where they were put into 2 different teams. They even had the opportunity to walk out of the tunnel to the sound of the Champions League music!

After playing their matches, the students were treated to a buffet lunch and special guest speeches, before being presented with medals to cap off what was a fantastic day.
