The free-air abseils, which take place on Saturday 27th and Sunday 28th March, will give daredevils the opportunity to get a bird’s eye view of the pitch as they abseil 140 feet into the Theatre of Dreams.

Natalie Paintin, Regional Fundraising Manager for Cystic Fibrosis Trust said: “An abseil is the ultimate adrenalin rush, and it’s a great experience for anyone who likes a challenge! We hope lots of people sign up and get sponsored. Everyone is welcome to take part.”

Participants are asked to raise a minimum sponsorship of £140, which includes a booking fee, payable on booking. No experience is necessary and you only need to be of average fitness to take part after a few minutes training.

The charities will also offer their top fundraisers the chance to win Manchester United merchandise signed by members of the First Team.
