Man United secures deal with Vietnamese bank

Manchester United has entered into a five-year partnership with

Vietnamese bank BIDV, building on the English champions’ portfolio

of financial interests in the Far East.

The deal will see the bank offer United fans in Vietnam a BIDV

Manchester United credit card, and could help the club expand its

appeal in a country where it is thought to have tens of millions of

supporters.

Manchester United commercial director Richard Arnold says the

product is a ”first for both the banks and club in Vietnam,”

where ”the club is lucky enough to have a large and very

passionate set of fans.”

United says its ”total financial services agreements cover 256

million followers across 12 countries.”

United won the English league title for the 20th time on

Monday.
