I have every confidence the values we share will make this partnership a great success, above all for our loyal fans who will soon be introduced to a range of products that will bring them even closer to the club they support".

Jayne-Anne Gadhia, Chief Executive Officer of Virgin Money, added: "We're proud to be the official UK financial services partner of Manchester United FC. This new partnership enables us to combine Virgin Money's excellent financial products and customer service with the reach of Manchester United, one of the biggest football clubs in the world.
