August 24, 2011

English Premier League Champions, sale Manchester United have added to their vast portfolio by agreeing a three-year partnership with Vietnam’s leading mobile telecommunications company Beeline.

The agreement with Beeline will give the club’s estimated 16 million fans in Vietnam a chance to see all the goals scored by United, as well as exclusive interviews, news and behind-the-scenes access.

Richard Arnold, Manchester United commercial director, said: “Beeline is the right partner for us in Vietnam, Laos and Cambodia – an ambitious young organisation which has already made a big impact locally in a short space of time.

“We know that this partnership will bring great benefits to both partners. We’re looking forward to breaking new ground with Beeline.”

Michael Cluzel, head of the Indochina cluster of VimpelCom Ltd. and CEO of Beeline Vietnam, added: “Football is the number one sport in Vietnam. Manchester United has always been one of the most widely supported football teams in the world and Vietnam is no exception.

“We are very excited to be working with Manchester United on a range of activities that will be mutually beneficial and will bring this legendary club closer to this football-loving country. Our focus is very simple: we will bring things closer to our customers and things that they want to experience things that no one has ever brought to them.”
