Wrexham AFC has announced United Airlines as the front-of-shirt sponsor for both the men’s and women’s teams, starting with the 2023–2024 season.
As part of their broader partnership with Wrexham AFC, the United Airlines name and logo will be on the front of the soccer club’s home, away and third shirts. Wrexham Co-chairmen Rob McElhenney and Ryan Reynolds revealed the new 2023–2024 home shirt and new United Airlines sponsorship on social media.
“We seek out sponsors that match the spirit of both Wrexham Association Football Club and the people of Wrexham,” the pair said. “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.”
This summer, Wrexham AFC will travel across the Atlantic on United flights for its Wrexham AFC American tour – the first time in the Club’s history that the first team squad will travel to the United States.
“The passion and perseverance of this team on the rise has captured the imagination of people in the U.S. and around the world,” said United Airlines Chief Communications Officer Josh Earnest. “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.”
The airline’s loyalty customers will have special access to Wrexham matches in the U.S. and in Wales through its MileagePlus Exclusives platform. United is working with the club on additional ways to support the local community from a philanthropic perspective.
“We are delighted that United Airlines will be the club’s new shirt sponsor,” said Wrexham Executive Director Humphrey Ker. “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.”
