Manchester United legends to help showcase Indian talent
The seven legends will be a part of several activities that will be held at the finale this year. The launch of the second season featured Dimitar Berbatov speaking about the importance of grassroot development, and the encouragement needed for young footballers to participate in sports.
The event in Chennai will end with five players being shortlisted from United We Play. They will be rewarded with a travel package to Old Trafford, where they will be a part of the matchday experience. The players will also be able to train at Manchester United Soccer School and interact with other legends of the game.
In the lead up to the event, Apollo Tyres will be conducting several contests on social media. The winners will be rewarded with the opportunity to meet and interact with the legends that come to India over the next weekend.
