Aeroflot will no more sponsor Manchester United going forward.
The statement reads “in light of events in Ukraine, we have withdrawn Aeroflot’s sponsorship rights. We share the concerns with our fans around the world and extend our sympathies to those affected”
Samuel Luckhurst who writes for Manchester United disclosed that a season ticket holder wrote to the club, seeking further clarifications on the matter.
“Still no comment on #mufc on Aeroflot sponsorship. A season ticket holder wrote to the club this morning seeking clarification on the matter and UEFA’s sponsorship with Gazprom amid the Ukraine conflict” Samuel disclosed.
Manchester and Aeroflot have been in partnership since 2013. The contract was renewed in 2017 according to reports but have been terminated in 2022.
The UK government had earlier banned Aeroflot from operating in and out of the united Kingdom. In addition, there’s a ban on the airline using UK airspace.
