The club’s new kit draws inspiration from its 1990s colors
We might be devoid of footballing action at the moment in the Premier League but this international break hasn’t been a slow burner by any means. Unlike the typical dull period these breaks are known for, the ongoing two week hiatus has seen a barrage of leaked kits do the rounds.
Manchester United’s Kit Leaked
After Chelsea’s kit was recently leaked, Manchester United have now seen their away shirt for the 2021-22 season emerge online. Akin to the kit the club donned during the 90s, the side’s shirt for the upcoming season sees a white backdrop, one adorned in designs of blue.
The new shirt also features the club’s new sponsor, German company TeamViewer in red. The two parties had recently put ink to paper for a sponsorship deal, one which will get underway starting the 2021-22 season.
TeamViewer New Kit Sponsors
TeamViewer has decided to collaborate with Manchester United to further make inroads into the world of sports. The company is said to be shelling out a colossal 235 million pounds over five years with a fees of 47 million per year being agreed upon between the two.
Despite this being the largest deal of its kind in the Premier League, Manchester United still lose 17 million pounds per year from the agreement. The club was previously in partnership with American brand Chevrolet for its front kit sponsorship with the car company backing out owing to the Premier League side’s horrid showing on the pitch.
TeamViewer meanwhile have failed to get the needed traction they would have envisaged from the deal. The club’s shares have plunged 16% since announcing its new alliance.
Manchester United managing director Richard Arnold said on the alliance: “We are tremendously proud to be establishing this partnership with one of the most exciting and dynamic global software companies. We are looking forward to working with TeamViewer to bring to life our vision for a partnership built on smarter ways of connecting people and businesses.”
Meanwhile, TeamViewer chief executive Oliver Steil commented: “We are very excited about this partnership, as it will significantly expand our brand positioning and it will help us to market our comprehensive solutions portfolio to all customer segments globally.”
