Sharpest tools in the shed
MUST, the bastions of top redness, have announced a sponsorship deal which will boost their campaign to wave scarves a lot. What’s more…get this…the deal is with ‘iconic’ former sponsors of MUFC, Sharp electronics. What a coup.
This is the same Sharp that closed its Manchester offices several years ago leaving hundreds redundant. In a nice nod to the green and gold ‘project’, its offices were based in Newton Heath. While there, as far as people are aware, the company did absolutely nish to benefit the community.
Doing nish is a continual theme in this news bulletin. We have been assured that this is not an April fool, and is not a wind up, however hard that is to believe.
Smelling salts at the ready, here’s the latest MUST missive:
We have an initiative within our developing sponsor’s campaign which we are very excited about so we wanted to share it first with our full members.
We have been in confidential discussions with iconic sponsor SHARP and are planning to mark the association with an official FANS’ SHIRT that keeps Green & Gold as prominent as ever in an appropriate way.
This is a major coup for MUST to have SHARP aligned to our objectives. It sends out a strong, positive message of support for our cause from major businesses – and in this case a brand with such a strong historical attachment to our club through their sponsorship of the United shirt for so many years and a link going right back to the roots of the club and the original Green & Gold with the location of SHARP in Newton Heath.
Green and Gold has become the public symbol of our campaign and one key objective of ours is to maintain the presence of Green & Gold throughout United’s fanbase and inside Old Trafford too so we’re right in the face of the current owners and the world’s media. We recognise there are other Green & Gold shirts in the marketplace but this will undoubtedly be seen by many as THE official FANS’ SHIRT, branded SHARP on the front and the quality will be superior to anything currently available.
The shirt will be made to exacting Premiership-quality standards. It will also be uniquely numbered (each shirt will have its own unique personal number on the bottom left hand corner) and will be priced at a super value £19.99 for adult sizes and £16.99 for junior sizes, with guaranteed delivery anywhere in the world in time for Christmas.
We will be emailing you on Thursday with a link to the new website the moment it goes live.
We will keep you updated with any further developments in this ace story. Meanwhile, if you have become disillusioned or fed up with such missiveness from MUST, why not transfer your funds from their ‘Phoenix’ account to a Newton Heath project that may actually involve doing something real.
