United Airlines has today been announced as the official front-of-shirt sponsor of Wrexham AFC, for both the men’s and women’s teams, starting from the 2023/24 season.
As part of their broader partnership with Wrexham AFC, the United Airlines name and logo will emblazon the front of the Club’s home, away and third shirts.
Co-chairmen Rob McElhenney and Ryan Reynolds revealed the new 2023/24 home shirt and new United Airlines sponsorship in a new video posted on social media today.
The co-chairman commented: “We seek out sponsors that match the spirit of both Wrexham Association Football Club and the people of Wrexham.
“We could think of no better sponsor for the next phase of our quest than United Airlines. The team, town and fans around the world are united as never before and United Airlines is committed to elevating our story and journey.”
United Airlines Chief Communications Officer, Josh Earnest, said: “The story of Wrexham AFC and their fans represents the best of what professional sports has to offer.
“The passion and perseverance of this team on the rise has captured the imagination of people in the U.S. and around the world. When the Wrexham AFC players deliver even more heart-pumping moments this season, we couldn’t be prouder that United Airlines will be written across their chests.
“We’re also excited to partner with the team and their co-chairmen across social media and on their hit TV show as the incredible story of this team and its loyal fans continues to unfold.”
This summer, Wrexham AFC will travel across the Atlantic on United flights for its highly anticipated Wrexham AFC American tour – the first time in the Club’s history that the first team squad will travel to the United States.
The airline’s loyalty customers will have special access to Wrexham AFC matches in the U.S. and in Wales through its MileagePlus Exclusives platform and United is working with the club on additional ways to support the local community from a philanthropic perspective.
Wrexham AFC Executive Director Humphrey Ker said: “We are delighted that United Airlines will be the Club’s new shirt sponsor. Their desire to provide a first-class service to customers, sees them the airline of choice for many US-based Wrexham fans.
“The Club will be in safe hands when traveling across the Atlantic for our pre-season tour and we look forward to flying with them.”
With hubs in the U.S.’s largest cities, United provides gateways to more international destinations across the Atlantic and Pacific than any other airline in the world.
This summer, United will fly non-stop to 37 cities in Europe, Africa, India and the Middle East – more than all other U.S. airlines combined – including London, Dubai, UAE; Malaga, Spain; Stockholm, Sweden; Amman, Jordan; Tenerife, Canary Islands; Ponta Delgada, Azores and Mallorca, Spain as well as more flights to some of the most popular destinations in Europe, such as Rome, Paris, Barcelona, Berlin and Shannon.
