Virgin Money has signed a four-year deal to become the retail financial services partner of Manchester United.

Customers taking one of the new products will get exclusive access to a range of club-related rewards and benefits, with further announcements to be made in the coming days.
Sir Richard Branson, founder of the Virgin Group said: “Virgin and Manchester United have very similar philosophies – we both want to change the game, not just play it.
“The two coming together under this new partnership with Virgin Money will create something really special.”
Richard Arnold, group managing director of Manchester United said: “This exciting partnership brings together for the first time two iconic brands, two industry leaders who have a reputation as innovators in their fields.
