Manchester United (NYSE:MANU) footballers will soon be wearing Aon's (NYSE:AON) name on their jerseys, after the two companies completed a long-term expansion to their sponsorship deal. Starting from July 1, the club's training facility is to be renamed the Aon Training Complex, and its distinctive jerseys will carry the Aon logo.
In addition, Aon is to be the official presenting partner for the team's preseason tours. The next such tour will take place later this year and will feature matches in Asian locales such as Bangkok, Sydney, and Hong Kong.
The new agreement lasts until 2021.
