To enter the contest, the fans need to log on to [http://www.barclaysfanofindia.com] and explain in not more than 100 words as to why they are the Barclays Fan of India. Alternatively, they can walk into any of the participating Café Coffee Day outlets around the country and submit their entries.

The best entry will win a trip for two to watch their favourite Barclays Premier League team play ‘live’ in England during the 2009/10 season. This will include flights, 4-star hotel accommodation, tickets and transfers. Ten runners up will also receive a Barclays Premier League team shirt of their choice.

Bryan Robson, Manchester United’s legendary midfielder and ambassador of the Barclays Fan of India contest, said, “Representatives of Manchester United have visited India on numerous occasions and they have always been impressed with the level of interest and enthusiasm that exists for the Barclays Premier League. Now I am just looking forward to seeing the response of the Indian audience to the Barclays Fan of India competition”.
