Pupils take centre pitch at Manchester United’s Europa League Game
Ten lucky pupils had the amazing opportunity to stand in front of 75,000 fans at Old Trafford and hold the Europa League flag in the centre circle.
The once-in-a-lifetime opportunity allowed our pupils to be flag-bearers at the UEFA Europa League. Pupils stepped foot on to the world-famous pitch before Manchester United’s game against Club Brugge.
Pupils held the Europa League flag in the centre circle in front of tens of thousands of fans before the match started.
Nour, one of flag-bearers, said: “The atmosphere was amazing and it was my first ever game. It was surreal actually going on the pitch I couldn’t believe it.”
Our pupils were given this opportunity as part of our long-standing partnership with Manchester United Foundation. A massive thank for making this happen. All our pupils were delighted, a great experience for all involved.
