HISTORY OF THE MANCHESTER UNITED PREMIER CUP The Manchester United Premier Cup (MUPC) started in the UK as a regional tournament in 1993. With a combined passion for the game, Manchester United Football Club and Nike joined forces in 2003 and the MUPC has now grown into one of the largest and most highly regarded football events of its kind. Over one million players have taken part in MUPC competition this edition alone, with over 9,000 teams from more than 40 countries competing for a place at the 2013 World Finals.
WORLD FINALS 2013 Since 2003 the World Finals have been held in various places globally including the United States and Hong Kong, and in August of this year, they return to Manchester, England. Preliminary competition will be staged at Manchester United-s first team-s Carrington training ground, with the Grand Final to be played in the Theatre of Dreams itself, Old Trafford. The search to find 20 of the world-s best U15s teams from around the globe to compete at this year-s World Finals is now well and truly underway - and by the end of this weekend, one of the below eight teams will have earned the once in a lifetime opportunity to represent Australia and New Zealand on the global MUPC stage.
