Uber is giving you a chance to play soccer on the pitch of Old Trafford

You can't proclaim to be a huge Manchester United fan when you haven’t actually been to Old Trafford. Fortunately, Uber is giving you the opportunity to do so in conjunction with its global partnership with Manchester United.

Starting today, Uber riders from across 200 cities (Malaysia included) will be able to unlock exclusive video content, and perhaps even travel to Old Trafford for an once-in-a-lifetime experience.

The exclusive videos will feature several star Manchester United players – including Paul Pogba, Juan Mata, and Henrikh Mkhitaryan – having a light moment with one another by revealing which teammate they would most want to share an Uber with, and the rating – based on the Uber “5 Star” standard – they would give their teammates should they become an Uber driver. In addition, they will also be answering questions related to their experience playing for Manchester United.

To access the aforementioned video content, all you need to do is open up the Uber app, and swipe up on the Manchester United card to opt in. Throughout the remainder of the season, you will also be given the chance to participate in 'Pitch Day' – a day where lucky fans from around the world will be flown to the United Kingdom to play on the pitch of 'The Theater of Dreams' – Old Trafford. Not only that, fans will also be able given the opportunity to hone their soccer talents in the Manchester United Soccer School.
