Could Google or Yahoo be Manchester United’s Next Sponsor?




Over at WebWatch, there’s speculation that Google or Yahoo could be in the running to sponsor England’s soccer powerhouse (and the second best team behind the Gunners) Manchester United.

Vodafone announced last week that it is ending its four-year £9m a year shirt sponsorship deal two years early at the end of this current Premiership season…some of the names reportedly willing to top Vodafone’s deal include Google, IBM and Yahoo!, according to The Observer newspaper at the weekend.

Sponsorship of an English soccer team generates a lot of brand exposure for any company. Man’ Utd has a strong global following with their shirts worn around the world.
