Manchester United will have a new American sleeve sponsor for next season.

Kohler produces everything from kitchen and bathroom products to engines and generators, as well as operating golf resorts.

The multi-year deal will see the brand feature on both its men’s and women’s teams.

“It is a pleasure to welcome Kohler to the Manchester United family as a principal partner and our first shirt sleeve sponsor for both the men’s and women’s teams. Our shirt is much more than what we wear, it embodies the passion of our fans and their allegiance to the club,” stated Manchester United’s group managing director, Richard Arnold.

Fans will see the new shirt when it debuts on 19th July during the club’s American tour.

“Our partnership with Manchester United provides new opportunities to showcase the quality of Kohler products and services with passionate fans of the most far-reaching and revered sports team on the planet,” added David Kohler, president and CEO of Kohler Co.

“An essential component of the relationship is our support of the new professional women’s team, and we look forward to their debut and our ongoing support. Manchester United embodies sustained excellence in everything they do and our shared values are a perfect match as we expand our fast-growing international presence into new regions with purpose and a meaningful presence.”
