Spectrum Brands Holdings and Manchester United jointly announced today the signing of a multi-year, global partnership under which Spectrum Brands’ iconic Remington personal care brand will become the Manchester United Football Club’s first official Electrical Styling Partner.
The partnership, which includes both the men’s and women’s teams, will see Remington and the club working together to deliver high-impact marketing campaigns to Manchester United and Remington fans alike.
One of the largest brands in Spectrum Brands’ broad portfolio, Remington has been integral to the world’s grooming and hair care routines for generations. Established in New York in 1937, for more than 80 years the Remington brand has been inventing, reinventing and evolving to create a range of grooming and hair care products at the cutting edge of design, fashion and technology.
As part of a major multi-channel activation, Remington and Manchester United will collaborate on a campaign which celebrates individuality and the power of inner confidence. The partnership will underpin and amplify Remington’s “The Story of You” campaign, which champions the brand’s mission to help customers build confidence to be themselves – recognising that a person’s journeys, experiences, values and aspirations make up who individuals are as people. The partnership will seek to inspire and enable more people to “Get Your You On”, motivating them to have the confidence to make their mark in everything they do.
Manchester United’s group managing director, Richard Arnold comments: “Remington is one of the most famous and established brands in their field and they are a great addition to our family of commercial partners. Our partnership is not only about bringing our fans high-end styling products, it aims to inspire and encourage individuality though powerful activations and campaigns with both Manchester United’s men’s and women’s team.”
Tim Wright, vice president for appliances at Spectrum Holdings comments: “Our partnership with Manchester United provides a fantastic opportunity to showcase the quality and versatility of Remington products with passionate fans of the world’s biggest and most revered sports brand.
“We have an impressive record of breaking the mould with our product innovation worldwide, and we feel this will be translated in our partnership with Manchester United, and in particular our involvement with both the men’s and women’s teams.”
