Manchester United have agreed a five-year sponsorship deal with TeamViewer

Manchester United have agreed a five-year contract with TeamViewer to become their main jersey sponsor from next season.

The remote software company will replace carmaker Chevrolet, which has been a major sponsor of the shirts since 2014.

United CEO Richard Arnold said: “We are extremely proud to establish this partnership with one of the most exciting and dynamic global software companies.

“The ability to connect and collaborate has never been more important to the world and our community than 1.1 billion fans and followers.

“We look forward to working with TeamViewer to revive our vision of a partnership built on smarter ways to connect people and businesses.”

The deal is believed to be similar to the one reported by Barcelona for 55 million euros (47 million pounds) per season with Rakuten, making the TeamViewer contract the biggest deal for Premier League shirts alone.

TeamViewer CEO Oliver Steil said: “We are very excited about this partnership, as it will significantly expand our brand positioning and help us market our complete solution portfolio to all customer segments globally.

“Along with Manchester United and TeamViewer, two global winning teams are joining forces: Together as Team United we can take the fan experience at the legendary Theater of Dreams to a new level.

“We are extremely proud that Manchester United have chosen us as a partner in their ongoing technology journey.”
