Aon, Manchester United Strengthen Global Partnership

Aon, Manchester United Strengthen Global Partnership


After three successful years during which Aon's sponsorship of Manchester United exceeded the firm's expectations in terms of brand awareness and commercial business impact, a new, ground-breaking, eight-year extension has been announced. This new phase of the partnership is focused on creating a greater understanding of Aon's business capabilities and helping Manchester United deliver results on and off the pitch.

At the end of the 2013-2014 season, Aon will leverage a wider set of team assets focused on driving improved business performance and highlighting how Aon "Empowers Results" for clients worldwide.

Specifically, Aon will become the first-ever partner of Manchester United's iconic training facility at Carrington, which will be named the Aon Training Complex. Aon will use the facility to provide best-in-class advice and solutions to the club on issues such as talent, development, health and wellness.

Aon and Manchester United will extend its work at the Aon Training Complex by collaborating and sharing ideas with Manchester United partners through the Manchester United Business Network. As Principal Partner of the Business Network, Aon will support a global program of research projects, business events and seminars for senior executives addressing critical issues in the economy today.

Consistent with Aon's emphasis on training and talent management, United players and coaching staff will also wear Aon-branded apparel and training kits at all matches versus UK clubs, pre-season tours, friendly fixtures, press conferences and training sessions.

Aon also will be the Presenting Partner of all Manchester United pre-season tours for the next eight years, including Tour 2013 presented by Aon, which includes matches in Australia, Japan, Hong Kong and Thailand.

Finally, Aon will continue to support the Manchester United Foundation, engaging in a shared mission to help communities at risk and empower people across the globe.
