“We have the unique ability to enable fans to make the most of life’s possibilities through football,” said Tim Mahoney, chief marketing officer, Global Chevrolet. “Around the world, in communities and on the pitch, we connect fans to the people, places and experiences that matter most to them.

Chevrolet will be seeking out these fans until 28 February 2017, fans that may become one of the lucky 64 who will travel to Manchester in May for the 2017 Chevrolet Fan Cup.
Football enthusiasts can enter the competition simply by filling out a form and uploading a video clip or photo on the Chevrolet Fan Cup 2017 website of them showing their passion for football. The deadline for entries is February 28, 2017 at 23:59.
All entries will be reviewed by a Chevrolet Panel. The winners will be selected and contacted.
While in Manchester, the 64 winners will attend Manchester United’s English Premier League match against Crystal Palace, meet team team members and be trained at the club’s famed soccer school. The highlight of their experience will be the professional match-day experience, including dressing in the players’ locker room and walking through the home club’s tunnel before competing against each other in a tournament on the Old Trafford pitch.
“Walking onto the pitch at Old Trafford is something most fans have dreamt of at some point in their lives but only a small number actually get to experience it,” Richard Arnold, Manchester United Group Managing Director said. “The Chevrolet Fan Cup can make this dream a reality. It is a unique opportunity to connect to the club, giving our supporters the chance to tread on the same ground where some of the game’s best have played, in a stadium that has been the setting for some of football’s most memorable moments.“
