Manchester United announce TeamViewer as shirt sponsor

  • The day many of you wished for has finally come - Match Day Score Predictions are no longer restricted to just 5 goals... *

    * The timing of this change is purely coincidental and has nothing to do with any perception of underperformance by any team in recent matches or fan pessimism, justified or otherwise, for future matches. (Probably).

Nah come on, Chevy was fugly.

The more simple the sponsors logo the cleaner the design of the shirt is. It’s not that bad.

I think most are hung up over it not being a cool brand more than anything. Sponsor-Snobbery :smirk:
I think it’s because it’s too long, so it looks weird. Ideally the logo would be within the outer boundings of the Adidas and club badge. This would give it a better balance.

Yeah and I think, as others have said, the squad logo will be placed above/under the TeamViewer writing which would balance it out a lot.

I think once they do that we will have some very nice kits in the near future, these included (imo.)

A bland logo is like a blank canvas when it comes to kits. Chuck a Chevy logo in the middle and your only trying to polish a turd.

People complain about a big full colour logo for years

Sponsor changes and puts small colour fitting logo on our kits.

People still complain.

Maybe Adidas should just let people design their own kits.
Yeah It's just bizarre.

The home kit is one of the best looking kits I’ve ever seen. Can’t understand all the complaints, the new sponsor looks ace.

Won’t look so good with a bear belly. They should get more realistic models for supporters.

For me it looks even worse than Chevrolet, kind of cheap and ugly. I'll get used to it of course, like with every new kit.

Red and blue kits look ok. Logo is awful though. And the kit with the red text is hideous.

Hopefully shirt sales plummet but I wont hold my breath.

Hahaha fecking no pleasing some. How can one of the most plain, non intrusive logos be ‘awful’?

The kits are a bit boring and I don’t like 2 blue ones but they’re all nice enough.

I like the home kit, the other ones? Not so much. 2 blue kits is a bit much too. 3rd kit looks like an Arsenal kit and the second one just has an average looking design imo.

next season shirts

Those are feckin awesome shirts. After so many years with ugly Chevrolet logo, I would buy at least one of these if it turned out to be true.

I don't think they'll change logo colors between red, blue and grey shirts though, what might affect the general look hugely.

But again, this looks 10x better than current shirt.

Hope it's fake because those are awful colours and designs for a United shirt other than the home shirt. They both look so cheap. Home kit is simple but the new sponsor also looks cheap. Uninspiring.

My wife's somewhat professional opinion was that these look as if designed by as a new student's first project and I think I agree :lol: But they clearly must have researched the general likeability levels etc. so I guess our taste is just completely different to the one of your typical shirt-buying aficionados.

I mean the red one is what everybody was asking for right? A basic, retro style shirt with a non intrusive sponsor. They all look brilliant in my opinion.

Bad new kit, won’t increase the sales

Feck me do they not realise a pandemic hit? A lot of stores that carry shirts were closed and the world suffered a recession.
Surely this cant be true, its stupidly tone deaf

Anything that hurts the Glazers is appreciated. Whether it's down to awful shirt design, the economic situation or anything else.

But maybe we are also finally starting to see an end to the ridiculous prices for a single T-Shirt. I've never bought a United kit because anything above £30 is ludicrous, as I'd never wear the kit outside for normal reasons. Plus, feck the Glazers.

If Adidas want us, then they want us, if they don't, we're big enough to get a better deal elsewhere. We still have a large share of fans despite our recent lack of success. All this threatening and clauses are a bit tedious.

Yeah this feels like opportunistic sniping at the club rather than anything serious. If anything, a 6% drop in sales in the middle of a once in a century event shows how strong our brand is.

Meh. It fell by 100,000. There's been a global pandemic and shops have been closed with people dying world wide. How does this compare with other clubs?

Absolutely nothing in this.
In fact Adidas should be happy that the drop is just 5%. Most store revenues have probably dropped by 30/40% in this last year.
Also, any idea if these numbers include sales at the Old Trafford Megastore?

Ironically, If Adidas actually designed a classic shirt, they would sell millions, but they give us shit each year
