Manchester United announced that it has reached a significant global partnership and principal sponsorship agreement with Aon Corporation, the world's leading risk advisor and human capital consultant, to take effect from the start of the 2010/11 season. Terms of the partnership were not announced.

As part of the sponsorship agreement, the Aon brand will feature on the world famous Manchester United shirt for four years.

Announcing the deal, Manchester United chief executive David Gill said, "We are delighted to be entering such an important relationship with a company of the stature of Aon and to have its logo adorn our shirts from the start of the 2010/11 season. We look forward to being closely aligned with the world leader in risk management, a firm which shares our values and is an exciting partner for Manchester United. Today's announcement clearly strengthens our position as one of the biggest clubs in world football."

"It is a unique opportunity when two leaders in their respective fields can come together in a partnership such as the one we are announcing today," added Greg Case, president and chief executive officer of Aon. "Manchester United has one of the most recognized sports brands in the world. David and his team are all about winning and about excellence; the same holds true for the Aon team. We play to win in our business, and that is why we believe this partnership will create tremendous benefits for both organizations worldwide.

"While we are delighted that our brand will be showcased to the over 330 million fans of Manchester United as well as the countless followers of football worldwide, we also are extremely excited about the opportunity to maximize the value of this partnership globally."

Manchester United is the biggest football club in the world. It has an estimated 333 million fans across the globe. Its home at Old Trafford celebrates its centenary in 2010 and reflects the rich history that surrounds the Club. The first English Club to compete in the European Cup, its visionary manager Sir Matt Busby later led the team to the first English triumph in that competition in 1968. In modern times, Sir Alex Ferguson - also knighted by HM The Queen for his outstanding contribution to football - has led the Club to more European, domestic and world success.
