Done deal: Manchester United have signed a five-year partnership with Toshiba
Manchester United have signed a ground-breaking agreement for Toshiba Medical Systems to become the club's official partner.
The five-year partnership, the first of its kind to be developed with a British football club, will see state-of-the-art medical equipment provided to the United's medical team based at The Trafford Training Centre in Carrington.
Carrington is currently undergoing its first major redevelopment since the first team moved there 12 years ago and rapid advancements in sports science and medicine mean existing facilities could not cope with the demands for staff and equipment.
'Our players are at the centre of Manchester United and it is vital that we are able to offer them the best possible medical support,' said United's commercial director Richard Arnold.
Toshiba Medical Systems Europe chief executive Chikao Kamijima said: 'This will ensure that the players and staff at Manchester United are given the best support possible and should also help to promote Manchester United as a leading innovator in football and player wellbeing.'
