Woodward says Man Utd global popularity continues to grow

Manchester United chief Ed Woodward says their global following continues to grow.

Woodward was confirming interest in United is enormous. The club estimate they now have more followers in the United States than the United Kingdom.

"We have not seen any impact on the wider business from the current on-pitch performance," Woodward said.

"Our partners choose Manchester United because we offer them something no other team can deliver - a global brand who can magnify their exposure through a club that has 659million followers around the world, with 325million of those in Asia and 108million in China.

"Statistics like these are not achieved in one season, rather than because of the history and heritage of the club and success achieved over 136 years."
