New shirt deal for Man United

2012-07-30 17:16

London - Manchester United have agreed a seven-year shirt sponsorship deal with American car company Chevrolet, which will begin at the start of the 2014-15 season.

United's commercial director Richard Arnold says it is a "fantastic, long-term deal for the club" and that Chevrolet "enjoyed the buzz generated by our fanatical support and the sell-out crowds in South Africa, China and Europe" where the club travelled on a pre-season tour.

The current United shirt sponsor, Aon, has another two seasons to run with the 19-time league champions in a deal that began in the 2010-11 season.

Last week, Chevrolet was announced as the official club car sponsor of their Premier League rivals Liverpool and the company also sponsored the club's tour of North America.
