The UK’s Manchester United Football Club (M.U) and the Bank for Investment and Development of Vietnam (BIDV) signed a cooperative agreement in Hanoi on April 24.

The signing ceremony was attended by M.U Ambassador Peter Schmeichel, who is a former famous goalie of the football club, among others.

Under the deal, the two sides pledge to promote the trade names of each other.

Their first collaboration will be the issuance of BIDV-Manchester United Bronze Card, which will allow holders to buy tickets to M.U matches or buy M.U souvenirs at preferential prices. A ceremony to debut the card will be held in Ho Chi Minh City on the evening of April 25. This will be also a chance for Vietnamese fans meet the former M.U goalie.-VNA
