Mailman Group Goes to Anfield
Updated: Jun 7, 2019
March madness wasn’t the only sporting event taking the world by storm this month. Across the Atlantic, Liverpool FC took on Manchester United at Anfield in arguably their biggest game of the season.
Over the past month, Mailman Group has worked with PPTV to create a documentary series around a young Chinese Liverpool fan with a powerful story. Dawei was injured in a serious bicycle accident 7 years ago and was left paralyzed from the neck down. With access to a eye-controlled computer, he has stayed up to date with the progress of his favorite football team, Liverpool FC. Watching football has brought him great happiness since his injury.
Upon hearing Dawei’s story, Liverpool FC stepped in to create a special experience for his family. His father was invited to accompany China’s #1 football commentator, Zhan Jun, to attend the Liverpool vs Man Utd match and enjoy a week of behind the scenes access in Liverpool. Dawei created a wish-list for his Dad, and it was the job of Mailman’s man on-the-ground in England to make sure we ticked off as many items as possible.

Of course it wasn’t all work, no play…our man on the ground, David, managed to enjoy himself on game day, and even rubbed shoulders with a few stars.
