Tinder (MTCH) is in talks with English Premier League club, Manchester United (MANU), to sponsor the team’s new kit. The deal would place Tinder’s flame logo on the left sleeve of player jerseys. Worth a reported $16 million, it would become the most lucrative sponsorship of its kind for English clubs. While it may seem like a surprising match for the dating app, it would actually be their second futbol partnership. The company currently has a shirt sponsorship deal in place with Italian Serie A side Napoli.
Fan Marino: I’m a grown man, so I don’t buy jerseys. If I were 20 again, I would not be buying a jersey with a corporate logo on it. Reminds me of a stadium giveaway.
