Man Utd's Commercial Sponsorships Have Reached Farcical New Levels With Tonight's Mascots

Man Utd's Commercial Sponsorships Have Reached Farcical New Levels With Tonight's Mascots
By Mikey Traynor

Ed Woodward loves a good deal, and nobody can quite bring in an Asian noodle sponsorship like the Manchester United chief executive, but when a picture of the mascots for Man United's final match of the season against Bournemouth emerged, the overwhelming opinion appears to be that this is one too far.

United have a lucrative sponsorship with 20th Century Fox, and they have a new X-Men movie coming out - because what the world really needs now are more superhero movies - so, of course, the children who are mascots for tonight's match should be painted blue.

Ah here, it's just getting ridiculous now.

Those kids, who probably think it's cool now, will look back on this memory in the future and wonder why they had to be painted blue for such a special occasion, and sadly the answer will be... "There was an X-Men movie coming out that needed to be advertised."
