Manchester United and Apollo extend sponsorship

Besides extending its partnership with Manchester United , Gurgaon headquartered tyre manufacturer Apolo has launched an initiative to create pitches from recycled rubber outside the club’s home stadium  Old Trafford to encourage the next generation of talent.

Apollo Tyres is using 100 per cent recycled rubber from its own tyres to create the surface for a new state-of-the-art community pitch within the Old Trafford premises.

The first of the ‘Go the Distance’ pitches is adjacent to the Theatre of Dreams and will be available for the local community to test out and hone their football skills.

The company has used roughly 10 tonnes of recycled rubber from its production facility, an equivalent of 2200 tyres, for the community pitch at Old Trafford.

As part of the announcement, the partnership with Manchester United will be extended across Europe, Asia and Africa and will be the Official Tyre Partner in 69 countries.
