Chevrolet Celebrates Debut On New Manchester United Shirt

DETROIT, July 9, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Chevrolet and Manchester United fans worldwide today are celebrating Chevrolet's debut on the football club's 2014-15 season shirt. Fans are invited to upload photos of themselves wearing a digital version of the new shirt at www.chevroletfc.com, and share it via their social channels.
Manchester United will wear shirts with the Chevrolet logo for the first time when the team meets the L.A. Galaxy on July 23 at the Rose Bowl. Before then, fans can go to ChevroletFC.com for a chance to “virtually” wear the uniform, then share the images through social media. The shirt is only the fifth design worn since the team was founded in 1878.

Putting fans at the center of the brand's debut on the shirt via a unique digital experience is part of Chevrolet's "What Do You #PlayFor?" global campaign to bring football fans closer to the sport and help them celebrate the passion for play.

"Manchester United has more than 659 million supporters around the world, and we want them to know that we march side by side with them," said Tim Mahoney, chief marketing officer, Global Chevrolet. "We wanted to celebrate this new shirt with Manchester United supporters in an historic way because they deserve to be part of this important moment in club history."

To celebrate the kick-off of its seven-year Manchester United shirt sponsorship, Chevrolet on Monday released an enhanced version of its video at www.ChevroletFC.com that pays homage to the history of iconic Manchester United shirts, dating to the club's inception in 1878. 

The video, which features Manchester United fans throughout history marching through the streets of Manchester with current players and legends singing the "Glory, Glory Man Utd" anthem, ends with player Wayne Rooney declaring, "This shirt belongs to you; always has, always will," as he and teammates Robin van Persie, David De Gea, Adnan Januzaj and Juan Mata reveal the new Chevrolet-branded home shirt.

Manchester United's Group Managing Director, Richard Arnold, said:

"The Club's traditions and heritage are extremely important to our players, team management and 659 million followers worldwide. As we look to our future in the new shirts, we are delighted that Chevrolet has been so committed to honouring everything that is so important to our club."
