Man United legend to attend United Malaysia’s annual dinner

KOTA KINABALU: Supporters attending United Malaysia’s 4th Annual Dinner are in for a treat with a Manchested United legend almost certain to grace the country’s official fan club’s event this June.

United Malaysia president Batholomew Jingulam said the club is working hard to bring the former United player to Sabah to be the special guest at the dinner, in what could be the largest ever Man Utd supporters’ gathering in Malaysia.

“We are almost there, about 60 per cent complete in getting the player to come. But let the legend be a surprise for now,” he said after witnessing the presentation of sponsorship worth RM5,000 by Dr. Katalina of Katalina Aesthetic and Wellness today.

The annual dinner will be held at the Hakka Hall here starting from 6.30pm on June 28.

Towards this end, Jingulam urged members who still have yet to purchase their tickets to do so the soonest possible as tables are selling out fast.

He also advised those who have obtained their tickets to come early in order to get some early-bird freebies.

“Those who come early will get official United Malaysia merchandise,” he said, adding raffle tickets are also available now, with the lucky winners standing a chance to go to Old Trafford (OT).

“In line with our club’s tradition, we will also be sending lucky winners of the Grand Lucky Draw to the Theatre of Dreams.”

Jingulam said United Malaysia has realised the dreams of over 400 members to visit OT, adding more than 100 people had gone for the trip in the just-concluded season.-SabahNewsToday
