Manchester United have teamed up with technology giant Google to offer them front row seats via Google Hangout, a video streaming service.

The 'Front Row' initiative will give fans the opportunity to appear on the hoardings around Old Trafford streamed from Google+.

On Sunday 16 March, as United line up at home against one of their biggest rivals, Liverpool, fans will have the opportunity to cheer on the team from anywhere in the world.

Richard Arnold, the group managing director at Manchester United, said: "This ground-breaking initiative offers a dynamic and innovative way for our fans worldwide to get even closer to the club they love".

To have a chance of winning, United fans must share a picture of themselves showing their support for the team on Google+ and adding #MUFrontRow.
