0 Comments

Get ready for Manchester United to have a new look across its chest beginning with the 2020-21 season.

The Premier League giants announced a new principal shirt sponsorship with TeamViewer, a German-based software company. The club had been showing Chevrolet on the front of its shirts since 2014.

United’s previous shirt sponsors have been Aon, AIG, Vodafone, and Sharp Electronics since first adding companies to its shirt in 1982.

Reports claim that TeamViewer will pay over $60 million per year for the right to be on the club’s iconic red jerseys (and alternate jerseys as well, of course).
