Fans in Delhi will also be able to enjoy a full day of activities before the live screening event, at the #ILOVEUNITED fanzone at Amphitheatre DLF Cyber Hub, Basement Street Number 1 BMS Office, DLF Phase 2, Gurugram, Haryana 122002, India. The fanzone is open from 10am to midnight and fans can expect entertainment, giveaways and competitions, courtesy of the club’s official partners. The #ILOVEUNITED fanzone is open to all fans and guests will not require a ticket to attend.

From 8pm onwards, Tottenham Hotspur versus Manchester United will be shown at the #ILOVEUNITED India live match screening. At the screening, Wes and Louis will be joined by MUTV’s Mark Sullivan, who will be hosting the pre-match and post-match show.

The #ILOVEUNITED India live match screening is free to attend and fans can apply online for tickets by visiting by no later than Sunday, March 8. Applications will then be entered into a ballot, with tickets issued at random. Successful applicants will be notified by email no later than Wednesday 11 March 2020.

Manchester United’s Director of Partnerships, Sean Jefferson commented, “Football is becoming increasing popular in India and the country boasts the club’s second-highest fan base. We have recently announced that our Academy team will be visiting in the summer for a cultural tour of Mumbai and we have hosted #ILOVEUNITED in India on five previous occasions. Over 50,000 fans applied for tickets collectively across these events, and we envisage our return to Delhi to be just as popular.”

“#ILOVEUNITED has connected millions of Manchester United fans over the last five years, engaging with our supporters on a global scale across visits to 19 cities around the world.”
