Premier League trophy to visit Viet Nam

HA NOI – The 19th English Premier League cup won by Manchester United will tour parts of Asia this year.

The cup will arrive in Viet Nam in April, accompanied by former United goalkeeper Van der Sar.

During the four-month tour, the cup will travel almost 80,000km through 27 countries, including Japan, India and Viet Nam.

The tour will kick off in the Indian capital Delhi on Saturday, and will be accompanied by United legends Denis Irwin and Quinton Fortune, Bryan Robson and Gary Bailey.

"The 19th league title was a special moment for everyone in the Manchester United family and the DHL Champions Trophy Tour is our way of being able to share that historic achievement with our 333 million fans," the club's commercial director Richard Arnold said on its official website.

Last year, Vietnamese football fans descended on Hung Vuong Parkson commercial centre to see the Football Association of England Cup (the FA Cup) escorted by former Liverpool defender Steve Mc Mahon. – VNS
