Manchester United said PepsiCo would be its soft drinks partner in Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore, Myanmar, Cambodia, Laos and Brunei, holding exclusive rights to use the club's branding on PepsiCo products within these markets.
Manchester United, which did not give a value for the deal, said it has a combined fan base of more than 38 million consumers in the seven countries, and claims to have over 650 million followers worldwide.
The club has lucrative sponsorship deals with companies ranging from U.S. car maker General Motors to Japanese marine engineering company Yanmar. This month it also signed a five-year deal with Russian firm Aeroflot to become its official airline.
'If there was any doubt anyway, it underlines the importance of the Asian market to the Premier League' said FTD's John Booth.
'Virtually every Premier League club now has at least one if not more deals involving partners in Asia, with drinks, betting, travel and financial services at the head of the game.'
