Chevrolet has hosted 11 children from around the world in Manchester, England, to serve as mascots for Manchester United’s Premier League at Old Trafford.
The children – ages 10-13 from Brazil, China, South Africa, South Korea and the United States, among others, to bring football fans closer to the sport and spread the power of play around the world.Each child’s story is featured at www.ChevroletFC.com.
Chevrolet has surprised everyone by partnering with the club to have each first team player walk onto the pitch wearing a shirt with the name of their mascot on the back. Then just before the start of the match, the players presented the shirts as gifts to them.
“We brought 11 children from around the world to Manchester to let them experience first-hand how the power of play can create hope, optimism and possibilities not just inside Old Trafford, but back in their communities as well,” said Tim Mahoney, chief marketing officer, Global Chevrolet. “Chevrolet’s partnership with Manchester United is about using the passion for this sport to make a positive impact around the world and inspire football fans everywhere.”
