Manchester United sign sponsorship deal with Bwin

Manchester United has signed a three-year sponsorship deal with sports betting company Bwin for an undisclosed amount, making it the club's "official online gaming and betting partner".

Bwin is the shirt sponsor of Real Madrid and a partner to Bayern Munich.

Last week, United floated its shares on the US stock market, raising $233m (£150m), less than originally hoped.

The flotation values the club at more than $2.3bn, making it one of the biggest sports clubs in the world.

Last month, the club signed a shirt sponsorship deal with US car brand Chevrolet which will begin in the 2014-15 season.

Manchester United now has 28 different sponsors, with Aon the club's main shirt sponsor.
