Manchester United And Aon Enter Groundbreaking New Eight-year Partnership Agreement

MANCHESTER, United Kingdom and LONDON, April 7, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Manchester United plc (NYSE: MANU) and Aon plc (NYSE: AON), the world's leading provider of risk and human resource solutions, today announced an innovative new business partnership which will, from 1 July 2013, extend their relationship by an additional eight years to 2021 and see the Club's renowned training centre renamed the Aon Training Complex.

Under the new partnership, Aon will become the first ever partner of the Club's training facility at Carrington, providing best-in-class advice to the Club on talent development, risk management, health and wellness. 

Manchester United and Aon designed this extension to showcase how Aon "Empowers Results" for its clients and to provide the Club with greater access to Aon's leading risk and human resource solutions.  This new phase will be focused on helping Manchester United drive greater business performance and deliver results on and off the pitch.

Consistent with Aon's emphasis on training and talent management, United players and coaching staff will also wear Aon-branded training kits at all friendly and competitive domestic fixtures, as well as during training sessions.

Aon, which has its global headquarters in London, will also be the Presenting Partner of all Manchester United pre-season tours for the next eight years, including Tour 2013 presented by Aon in Asia Pacific.

Announcing the partnership, Manchester United Commercial Director Richard Arnold said:

"I am delighted that this cements our relationship with Aon for a further eight years.  They are a great partner and I am very excited about the possibilities for sustainable advantage this provides the Club as we build our global presence.

"Aon knows that every employee, including the first team, drives the success of our Club.  The Aon Training Complex is all about winning and preparing individuals, identifying talent and performing at the highest level to achieve success.  Aon serves clients with unwavering focus on high performance, training and execution, an approach that mirrors the way we prepare here at Manchester United."
