Anyone who saw the highlights of the Everton match last weekend would be forgiven for thinking that this event will be cancelled due to lack of candidates, but Manchester United is ploughing on with its ‘Player of the Year’ awards dinner – and you can go.

Marriott Bonvoy has four pairs of tickets available for this event on 9th May.  To quote:

“The Manchester United Player of the Year Awards 2019 is around the corner and you won’t want to miss this intimate ceremony in the Manchester Suite at Old Trafford. Players who have excelled in the Manchester United shirt this season will be recognized and you will be alongside to see it all. This will also include a red carpet arrival, VIP pre-event drinks reception, three-course meal, live entertainment and more.”

The tickets are being auctioned for Marriott Bonvoy points here.  You could get a bargain – bids close on 30th April and only one of the four packages has attracted a bid so far.  Please note that this is a black-tie event.
