Announcing the new deal, Manchester United’s Chief Executive, David Gill, said: “This deal breaks new ground in the English game. We are delighted that DHL has chosen to pioneer training kit sponsorship with the Club. Their global presence and international standing are a perfect fit for the world’s most popular football club.”

Commercial Director Richard Arnold said: “This is a deal that continues to demonstrate the Club’s position as the most innovative and successful in the game. DHL have been a great partner to work with and have integrated with the Club’s operations seamlessly. The work they did around this summer’s US tour was striking and we are looking forward to developing a broader relationship in the future.”

John Pearson, CEO DHL Express (Europe), said: “This strategic partnership will see DHL getting more involved in the behind the scenes operations of Manchester United and supporting the club in its continued success.
