Firm commemorates shirt reveal with 'Aon United Global Day'

The new Manchester United home kit for the 2010-11 season was revealed, with the logo of Aon Corporation, the leading global provider of risk services and human capital consulting, featured on the front of the famous shirt. Aon's four-year shirt sponsorship of the Manchester United Football Club was launched on June 1, 2010.

"The Manchester United shirt is an iconic image in the world of sport, and we are honored to appear on it," said Greg Case, president and chief executive officer of Aon. "Starting today millions of people worldwide will begin to know yet another leading team: Aon."

Case said that in honor of this historic occasion, every one of Aon's 36,000 global colleagues will receive a Manchester United team shirt.

The Aon logo is featured on the front of the shirt. Inside the shirt on the back of the club crest is the mantra of Manchester United – "Believe." That message sits next to the heart, revealing the inner pride of every Manchester United fan while the symbolic Red Devil rests on the sleeve of the shirt and the shorts to add the finishing touches to the kit.

The new home kit combines elements of the club's history with new age technology – as every shirt has been made entirely from recycled polyester and each created from up to eight plastic water bottles as part of Nike's "Considered Design" program.

David Gill, Chief Executive Officer of Manchester United, said, "We're delighted to be launching our latest Manchester United shirt and the first to bear the Aon logo. We're incredibly proud of our association with Aon and look forward to achieving great things, both on and off the pitch, through our partnership with them."

Case noted, "Our sponsorship of Manchester United is an important amplifier of our Aon United vision – to work together as one team for clients, for colleagues and for communities in order to grow our firm. This shirt sponsorship creates an opportunity for us to unite our firm while telling the world who we are and the value we bring to clients."

Aon has dedicated July 15 as "Aon United Global Day," demonstrating Aon and Manchester United's shared commitment to serving their communities.

In Chicago, a series of events will take place at Millennium Park to support children of the Chicago Park District and Special Olympics Chicago, as well as LifeSource Blood Center. Around the world, Aon's 36,000 colleagues in over 120 countries will be participating in fundraising and volunteer activities, including supporting hundreds of schools, children's hospitals, orphanages and community centers as well as more well-known organizations such as Big Brothers Big Sisters Clubs, Junior Achievement, Ronald McDonald House, Special Olympics, UNICEF, United Way, and the YMCA.
