Manchester United fans across the UK are able to apply for the new credit card, which now offers 16 months at zero per cent on balance transfers*, three months at zero per cent on purchases*, and a range of "money can't buy" prizes and discounts simply by spending.
As an extra incentive, fans successfully applying for the new credit card and spending on their card before 2 November 2012 will enter a prize draw for the chance to watch a first team training session at Carrington. New customers who spend £200 on their card within 90 days of their account opening will also receive a £40 voucher, which can be redeemed in the Manchester United on-line store for a range of club items.
The Manchester United credit card is available at http://www.manutd.com/financepartners.
Michael Donald, MBNA's Business Development and Marketing executive, said: "This new and improved credit card offer gives more value to Manchester United fans across the UK.
"Over the years, we have forged a strong relationship with Manchester United Football Club, and we are continuing to work together to develop products that offer supporters a fantastic deal, whilst contributing to the future of the club."
The card offers a range of other benefits. For every £50 they spend on the card, cardholders will be entered into a monthly prize draw offering them the chance to win signed Manchester United shirts and pennants as well as limited edition action prints of members of the first team.
Simply by using the Manchester United Credit Card, fans can also benefit from a range of club discounts, including ten per cent off purchases in the UK Megastore, dining at the Red Café, and the club's online Megastore, plus 20 per cent off museum and stadium tours*.
Manchester United's commercial director, Richard Arnold, added: "This is the only credit card of its kind available to our UK fans and it's great to be able to offer them some truly unique prizes, like watching the first team train at Carrington, as well as a great product. Our partnership with MBNA and the Manchester United Credit Card enables us to offer something special to the people who back our club week in, week out."
The affinity partnership MBNA has established with Manchester United in the UK is one of MBNA's most successful sports credit card programmes.
