CHEVROLET x 
MANCHESTER UNITED

Shirt Reveal

Manchester United is the biggest, most popular sports team on the planet. In order to reach its fans, Chevrolet signed the largest deal ever in sports marketing history to be the club’s main sponsor.

...

To celebrate the first Manchester United shirt to bear the Chevrolet name—there have only been five sponsors in the clubs’ storied 136 year history— this global launch spot introduces Chevrolet not just as a faceless sponsor, but rather as a passionate fan.

...

Online, a shareable interactive video (directed by yours truly) invited fans to upload their own face to wear the shirt and be part of the team. 

...

And when the club played Real Madrid in a friendly at Michigan’s The Big House in Ann Arbor, it became the largest match ever attended in US soccer history. 109,318 fans sang along as the spot played on the jumbotrons.

...
