Manchester United Targeting Lucrative US Market For New Revenue: Daily Soccer Report

Manchester United have set their sights on the United States as a market that is ripe for new commercial deals to bring the club millions more dollars to pay off their debt.

Manchester United Executive Vice-Chairman Ed Woodward said:

“The US market is under penetrated. It is a very big media market, the most developed sports market in the world.

“But we don’t want to deals that are quick and wrong, that tie us up and we regret afterwards.

“We believe there has been an inflection point from 2010-11 when interest levels in football have increased.

“In the last three years the number of people watching Manchester United has gone up by between 30 and 35 per cent each year. NBC reported peak viewership for our game against Chelsea last month was the biggest weekday afternoon audience since the Olympics.

“It is moving away from being a niche sport and into the territory of competing with some of the top sports in the country.”
