Manchester United Increase Banking Partners

Wed 18th Sep 2013 | Football Sponsorship

Manchester United have signed two new regional sponsorship agreements with Commercial Bank of Qatar and Emirates NBD Bank.

The two prominent banking organisations have signed five year deals that will see them become the Club’s Official Financial Services Partners in their respective countries.

As part of the separate agreements, both organisations will have the rights to produce Manchester United branded credit, debit and prepaid cards.  In addition to this, Emirates NBD Bank will also market its own Manchester United Savings Account.

Manchester United group managing director Richard Arnold, commented, “Manchester United is very pleased to be teaming up with both of these prominent banking groups to offer our fans in Qatar and the UAE another way to support their team.  

“Both CBQ and Emirates NBD have impressed the Club with their commitment to corporate social responsibility, sharing many of the same core values as Manchester United.

“Collectively, the Club has over a million followers in Qatar and the UAE and we hope that the introduction of the two new partnerships will allow us further to expand the Manchester United family, bringing supporters closer to the team they love.”

Suvo Sarkar, General Manager - Retail Banking, Emirates NBD, added, “Emirates NBD is honoured to be the official financial services partner in the UAE for Manchester United, which holds the distinction of being the most popular football club in the world and has more than 750,000 followers in the UAE alone.

“Through this strategic partnership platform, we are also proud to introduce the Emirates NBD Manchester United Credit and Prepaid Cards to the UAE market, to reach out to the strong Manchester United fan base in the country.”

Chief executive officer from Commercial Bank of Qatar, Mr Abdulla Al Raisi, also commented, "We are proud to be bringing to our customers financial products that will enable them to get closer to the world’s best soccer team, Manchester United, providing them with priceless experiences and opportunities to get involved in soccer related activities and promotions.

“We have every confidence that our relationship with Manchester United will go from strength to strength and that we will leverage our relationship over the coming years to further innovate and offer leading products to our customers.”
