Manchester United: TeamViewer announced as new shirt sponsor with five-year contract
What should I know about the agreement?
Athletic Understands that the deal is similar to Barcelona’s € 55million (£ 47million) per season deal with Rakuten, making the TeamViewer deal the biggest jersey-only deal in the Premier League.
The five-year agreement will begin at the start of the 2021-2022 season.
The sponsorship deal is the largest of any kind obtained by a sports team during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

Manchester United Managing Director Richard Arnold said: “We are extremely proud to partner with one of the world’s most exciting and dynamic software companies.
“The ability to connect and collaborate has never been more important to the world and our community of 1.1 billion fans and subscribers.”
TeamViewer Managing Director Oliver Steil called the partnership “two global winning teams joining forces”.
