DETROIT – As part of its mission to bring play and football to communities around the world through its Beautiful Possibilities Program, Chevrolet will host 11 children in Manchester, England, this week as mascots for Manchester United’s match vs. Liverpool FC.
The children – ages 8 to 14 from Brazil, China, India, Thailand and the United States – will meet with Manchester United players and legends in the days ahead of Saturday’s match, attend the Manchester United Soccer School and tour the Club’s stadium, Old Trafford. Chevrolet chose the children because they embody the spirit of play.
The highlight of their experience will be Saturday when the children walk onto the Old Trafford pitch with Manchester United’s first team, each player wearing a match shirt with the name of his mascot on the back. Moments before the match starts, in a show of admiration and in line with football tradition, Manchester United players will remove their shirts and present them to the mascots.
This is the second consecutive year Chevrolet is bringing children from around the world to Manchester to participate as mascots, an experience the brand plans to continue. Each child’s story is featured at: http://s.gm.com/4PK
