Manchester United fans set to be streamed onto Old Trafford hoardings during Liverpool derby
Fans given chance to watch the game in unique way
Friday 14 March 2014
A few Manchester United fans will venture into unknown territory this weekend, being streamed onto the Old Trafford advertising boards for Sunday's game with Liverpool.
United have teamed up with Google for the 'First Row' initiative which will give a few lucky fans a unique view of the game - from the hoardings on the side of the pitch.
The winners have been chosen from fans who shared a picture on the site with the tag '#MUFrontRow' and will create a world-first when they watch on Sunday.
Manchester United’s Group Managing Director, Richard Arnold, said: "This ground-breaking initiative offers a dynamic and innovative way for our fans worldwide to get even closer to the club they love.
"Working with Google we are giving the chance for some of our 659 million followers around the globe to have a unique opportunity to be pitchside at one of the biggest games in world football, something that is a dream for all United fans, no matter where they live."
Head of Google+ EMEA, Cristian Cussen said: "Hundreds of millions of United supporters in every corner of the world dream of experiencing a match at Old Trafford. It's one of those sporting events you cherish for the rest of your life."
