Tim Wright, vice president for appliances at Remington-owner Spectrum Holdings, added: "Our partnership with Manchester United provides us with 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, and this will be translated into our partnership with Manchester United, and in particular our involvement with both the men’s and women’s teams.”
