I like their foray into football team sponsorship over the years and have clearly grown.

Their NZ arm has been spnsoring the Rugby for years and partners with Canterbury RL.

In the UK it looks like they have previously done various forms of sponsorship with Basingstoke Town, Ealing Trailfinders, Bolton, Bury, Hartlepool and Sheffield Wednesday, then sponsored à Hibs match and the back of a Luton Town shirt.

Currently they partner with West Ham Academy (sleeve) & Ladies (socks).

Current main shirt/stand sponsors to date include:

Morecambe (main stand since 2020)
Oldham Ath (since 2021)
&
Swindon Town (as above)

There could be more at present that I don't know but clearly looking to expand their brand fairly quickly. Some of this I googled of course but I knew of them as I had been looking at using them myself just last year!

I did read that but to be honest it didn't enlighten me a great deal!

Pleasingly low key logo though, that's good.

Looks like they have someone with  marketing budget that likes football. Guess it's a good way to create some brand awareness.

Quick glance at the website with no effort seems like a load of buzz words without really explain what it is or how it works.

More shirts than bartercard...

with all the ronaldo press there are lots of info coming out that utd receive 7% of shirt sales. anyone know the structure for us or in the lower leagues? Never seen it discussed by the club before, I can't imagine we sell huge amounts and we mainly use them as a vehicle for sponsorship rather than for product sales.

Heard a rumour we won’t be stocking any more home shirts this season as they have sold out and apparently the minimum order for Puma is 5,000 shirts which I’m sure the club don’t want to commit too.

it doesn't answer your question but shirt sales barely bring any income to the club apparently
