A devoted Manchester United supporter named Scott was looking for the most spectacular venue to pop the big question to his long-term partner Harriet and he chose Old Trafford.
Doing away with the mundane city break to Paris or the cliched all-singing, all-dancing flash mob, Scott picked the home of United as the perfect gesture to ask his girlfriend to marry him, the place, in his words ‘where it all began’.
The pair were filmed by the club’s media team as they took a tour around Old Trafford recently before a match, as they got inside the iconic stadium and even on to the hallowed turf.
An unsuspecting Harriet looked overawed by the surroundings before she was invited on to the pitch.
Moments later, she admitted that everyone surrounding them may have been in on it, Scott dropped to one knee and proposed to Harriet and she said YES.
To honour one of their own, United’s towering superstar striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic took time out from the club’s busy schedules to create a video for the pair to commemorate their special day.
“Scott and Harriet, I wish you all the best, from me and the club. Live life, enjoy it,” Ibrahimovic said.
The new couple spent the rest of the evening watching a late kick-off from the directors’ box at the Theatre of Dreams.
