July 2014, Los Angeles CA: How did Manchester United "get their kicks" before the soccer season commences? The players got behind the wheel and drove through Beverly Hills in a convoy of Chevrolet vehicles before their highly anticipated pre-season opening contest against the Los Angeles Galaxy! Among the famous film and residential landmarks Man Utd. cruised to included: The Beverly Wilshire ("Pretty Woman," former residence of Elvis Presley, Warren Beatty, among others); the former home of Angelina Jolie which includes nearby residences of Bill Cosby, Bob Dylan, Lana Turner, Steve Martin, Aldous Huxley and Lucille Ball; Mick Jagger's home which is situated near the residences of Michael Jackson, Frank Sinatra, and Howard Hughes; and the Beverly Hills Police Station (site of "Beverly Hills Cop"). Chevrolet is a sponsor of Manchester United. The Man Utd. convoy included the Camaro Convertible, Impala, Cruze Diesel, Camaro Hardtop, Silverado, Corvette Stingray, Volt, and the Suburban. Chevrolet kicked off its seven-year shirt sponsorship with Manchester United on July 7 by inviting fans around the world to upload photos of themselves wearing a digital version of the new shirt at www.ChevroletFC.com, and share it via their social channels. Chevrolet also released a video on www.ChevroletFC.com featuring Manchester United players, legends and fans paying homage to the history of the club's shirts. The video has been viewed more than 3 million times by Manchester United fans around the world. In March, Chevrolet launched "What Do You #PlayFor?," a global campaign to inspire football fans and make lasting impacts in places where play is needed. As part of this campaign, Chevrolet hosted a Manchester United Soccer School clinic July 20 at the StubHub! Center in Carson, Calif. The clinic included 32 children from Los Angeles-area youth soccer teams working with MUSS coaches on a variety of skills and techniques. Chevrolet will continue to celebrate its debut on the new Manchester United shirt over the next month. On Aug. 2, Chevrolet will be the presenting sponsor of Manchester United's first‑ever match in Michigan, at the University of Michigan's "Big House" in Ann Arbor vs. Real Madrid. The match is part of the 2014 Guinness International Champions Cup. Michigan Stadium is the largest stadium in the United States. Chevrolet also is planning a memorable moment for fans at Manchester United's 2014-15 opening Premier League match on Aug. 16 at Old Trafford against Swansea City FC.
