Man Utd hunt for shirt sponsor to replace TeamViewer

December 18 – Manchester United are re-selling their front of shirt sponsorship that is currently held by German technology company TeamViewer.

The club and TeamViewer have agreed thy will end the five-year £235 million sponsorship, once a new sponsor can be signed.

The TeamViewer sponsorship only began with the 2021/22 season, when the software technology company replaced Chevrolet in a deal reckoned to be £17 million less than Chevrolet were paying, but struck during the covid pandemic.

A club statement said: “After a period of collaborative, private discussions over the past months, Manchester United and TeamViewer AG have reached a mutually-beneficial agreement under which Manchester United shall have the option to buy back the rights to the club’s shirt front sponsorship.

“Having agreed its partnership with TeamViewer at the height of the Covid-19 pandemic, Manchester United will be taking the opportunity to commence a focused sales process for a new shirt front partner in a normalised market.”

Once a new shirt sponsor is found TeamViewer will remain a club sponsor, said the club, where “their financial commitments will reflect their status as a global partner”.

“No further announcement will be made until Manchester United has selected a new partner to replace them on the front of its iconic shirt,” said Man Utd.
