But first … see your name at a Manchester United game
As part of the partnership between Marriott Bonvoy and Manchester United, it is giving fans the opportunity to “appear” pitchside at Old Trafford during Premier League games.
This is a unique opportunity for your name, or the name of someone you think would be thrilled by this, to be displayed on the pitch side billboards at Old Trafford!
If this sounds like the sort of thing that someone you know would love, you can nominate yourself or someone else on this page of the Manchester United website. Nominations close on Friday, so be quick.
Marriott Bonvoy members will have an improved chance of being chosen.
The promotion is set to continue for the full 2020/21 season. The first winners names will appear during the Manchester United vs. Chelsea match on 24th October.
