United Bring EPL Trophy

English champions Manchester United will arrive in Bangkok on July 1 with the Premier League trophy.

The trophy will be on display at CentralWorld and there will be activities with United players led by Rio Ferdinand, Park Ji-Sung and Patrice Evra.

The visit will be part of the club's 12-day tour of Asia to thank their fans in this part of the world. The Red Devils, who won a record 19th English league title last season, will also go to Hong Kong, China, Indonesia, Malaysia and Singapore.

More than half of the club's estimated 333 million fans are in Asia and the trip will give them a close look at the trophy and some of the team's stars, said United commercial director Richard Arnold.

Arnold said: "We know from the huge response from the Asia-based supporters in our 16 million Facebook followers and our commercial partners in the area just how much our Asian fans celebrated the historic 19th title, so we want to make sure they can be part of that history by taking the trophy to them.

"Some of the players have taken time out from their summer holiday (ain't that bloody big of them?!) to say a big thank you to the supporters in Asia. It will be a lot of fun."

Hong Kong – 23 June
China – 27/28 June
Indonesia – 29/30 June
Thailand – 1 July
Malaysia – 4/5 July
Singapore – 6/7 July
