Apollo Tyres X Football

Apollo Tyres has been supporting football in various ways. Apart from sponsoring some of the biggest clubs in the world, we are also promoting football in India through grass-root support.

At Apollo Tyres, we are actively involved in promoting the sport and have sponsored several football teams and events in the country. One of the most notable examples of Apollo Tyres' support for football is our partnership with Manchester United since 2013. Apollo Tyres' logo appears on Manchester United's training kits, and we have several promotional campaigns such as #UnitedWeWin to engage with fans.

Apart from Manchester United, Apollo Tyres has also sponsored other football clubs in different parts of the world, including Chennaiyin FC in India, Crystal Palace FC in England, and Borussia Monchengladbach in Germany. Additionally, Apollo Tyres has also supported various football events, including the UEFA Euro 2016, the 2018 FIFA World Cup, and the 2019 AFC Asian Cup.

The United We Play programme is an on-ground grassroots football initiative, supported by Manchester United to encourage young football talent from across the country by giving them a platform to showcase their skills with the objective of motivating aspiring footballers to continue playing and introducing them to global training methodologies.

The first two seasons received an overwhelming response with over 10,000 players from the country participating in the hybrid programme comprising on-ground trials and virtual sessions with Manchester United Soccer Schools’ coaches. The last season saw 4 young footballers – Chennai’s R S Preyarhanjan, Meghalaya’s Federick Kurbah, Chandigarh’s Ronald Singh and Pune’s Kunal Yeole get a lifetime opportunity to visit Old Trafford to participate in exciting activities like a match-day experience, training session with Manchester United Soccer School coaches, and a chance to interact with the Club’s Legends.

David De Gea, Anthony Elanga and Donny van de Beek, who are on their maiden visit to India, officially launched and kickstarted the activities for the third season of United We Play programme.
