VIDEO: UA92's inaugural open day in The Point

University Academy 92 (UA92) welcomed the first of its prospective students to its inaugural Open Day at Emirates Old Trafford recently.

Guests in The Point heard from co-founders Gary Neville and Ryan Giggs on how their education as part of the Class of 92 inspired them to want to launch the new university academy and pass on the winning philosophy.

A large exhibition showcased UA92’s partners, such as founding partner Microsoft, as well as KPMG, Lancashire Cricket Club and INSIGHT.

Daniel Gidney, CEO of Lancashire Cricket Club commented: "We were delighted to host UA92's first ever Open Day at Emirates Old Trafford.

"The event represented one of the first steps on a long and exciting journey for the new university academy, and it was great to see so many prospective students at the home of Lancashire Cricket Club - this is a fantastic opportunity for the young people of Trafford, Greater Manchester and beyond.

"We are proud to partner with UA92 and we're looking forward to developing the relationship in the future, as key integral elements of the emerging Trafford Civic Quarter Masterplan, and unlocking greatness, together."
