Flow Caribbean and current Emirates FA Cup holders Manchester United have partnered to bring the trophy to football fans in Jamaica and the Caribbean this month.

The trophy will arrive in Jamaica on Thursday following stops in Trinidad and Barbados before its final stop in the Cayman Islands. Flow says it has what it describes as an "exciting three-day schedule" planned for Jamaican sports fans.

Manchester United Ambassador Dwight Yorke, who himself lifted the FA Cup in 1999 with United's treble-winning team, will join Flow as a special guest on the final leg of the tour to make a special announcement about the soon to be launched skills-development initiative for young footballers - another Flow/Manchester United partnership.

"This is all for our customers who are lovers of the beautiful game," said Garfield Sinclair, newly appointed President of Flow Caribbean.

"We are the Home of Sports in the Caribbean and our relationship with Manchester United enables us to give our football fans this amazing opportunity to get up close to the FA Cup, which for some, is a once in a lifetime event."

As the FA Cup makes its way around the Caribbean, fans will have the opportunity to take photos and create personal memories of these events.

Fans will also get a chance to participate in activities and win prizes from Flow and Manchester United.
