Manchester United Christmas Card

December 2, 2016

Manchester United has swapped football boots for Santa suits to launch the 2016 official club Christmas card, featuring Sir Bobby Charlton and children from Manchester United Foundation projects.

The card celebrates the 60th anniversary of Sir Bobby’s Manchester United debut and sees the club legend surrounded by 60 children from Foundation projects, all donning Santa hats and club scarves for the festive season.

Shot by celebrated portrait photographer Rankin, the image shows the 1966 World Cup winner, accompanied by 60 children from Manchester United Foundation partner schools and projects, at the entrance to the players’ tunnel at Old Trafford. The children represent six decades of Sir Bobby’s service to the club and the enormous contribution to charity he has made over the years.

Two children from each of the Foundation’s 20 partner schools, plus representatives from the Street Reds programme and Girls’ Regional Talent Club, were invited to take part in the exclusive photo shoot as a reward for their hard work and dedication, and each received a Manchester United shirt, scarf and Santa hat. Tayyab and Ahmad were lucky enough to be chosen to represent Ladybarn!

Speaking of the Christmas photoshoot, Sir Bobby Charlton said: "To meet these wonderful children through the Foundation was a fantastic experience and it’s great for their hard work and efforts to be recognised this Christmas. There have been so many unforgettable experiences for me, through this wonderful football club and this Christmas card celebrates what has been such a memorable year for me and my family."
