Chevrolet link up with Red Devils
Manchester United have confirmed a five-year partnership with US car giant Chevrolet to become the club's official automotive partner.
Club officials have flown into Shanghai and will unveil the deal later on Thursday. Although no figure is being placed on the partnership it is believed United have secured a significant increase on their previous deal with Audi, which has now expired. "With 659 million United fans and followers around the world, the commitment that Chevrolet is making to football and its plans to bring these fans closer to our club is very exciting for us," said United commercial director Richard Arnold. "This is also the first time we have teamed up with a US automotive partner and with the growing popularity of the club and English football in America, we are hoping the relationship will allow us to further expand our fan base in the country."
