Lucky fans joined us for a live screening of the Premier League match between Manchester United FC and Tottenham Hotspur FC, supported by Barclays.

Fans also had the opportunity to have their picture taken with the Premier League Trophy as well as enjoy authentic match day food and be entertained in our fan zone by soccer freestylers and other interactive activities.
