Manchester United’s Bruno Fernandes and Ella Toone awarded PFA Community Champions 2021/22

Bruno Fernandes and Ella Toone have been awarded the PFA’s Community Champion award by Manchester United Foundation.

The awards were given to the Manchester United duo for their ongoing support of the local community throughout the 2021/22 season.

Fernandes and Toone have been recognised for their contribution to the local community in spreading positive messages, meeting with participants, and raising awareness of the Foundation’s work in the local areas.

Bruno was nominated for the award after taking part in a variety of Foundation activations throughout the season, including packing gifts and sending virtual messages of support to patients and staff at local children’s hospitals at Christmas. Bruno has also frequently been involved in meet-and-greets, most recently with a group of primary school pupils at Carrington.

“It’s an honour to be recognised as this season’s PFA Community Champion”, Fernandes said. “Manchester United is not just about football on the pitch, but also giving back to our local communities and inspiring the next generation.”

Manchester United Women midfielder Ella Toone has also been nominated for the award due to her impact on young people this season.

When presented with the award, Ella said: “I’m delighted to receive the PFA Community Champion award this season. After working so closely with Manchester United Foundation, I’ve seen how it can directly change the lives of young people for the better.

“Being from the local area it’s incredibly rewarding for me to visit and give back to the community I grew up in. I hope by sharing my experiences I can be an example and inspire children for the future.”
