Manchester United lose £200m sponsorship deal amid fan protests towards Glazers
Manchester United have lost a 10-year training kit deal with Myprotein following the fan protests towards the club’s owners, The Guardian reports.
AON have sponsored the club’s training kit over the past eight years, but their contract is due to expire at the end of June.
Myprotein, who are owned by The Hut Group (THG), were proposed to become the new sponsors on a 10-year contract worth £200 million.
However, the Cheshire-based company have now pulled out of the sponsorship amid the anti-Glazers fan protests in recent weeks.
There have been calls from some fans to boycott the club’s commercial partners in protest against the ownership of the Glazers.
THG believe they could be targeted as a local business, and have thereby decided to pull out of the proposed contract.
