“The bold vision, creativity and innovation of our trailblazing founder, Mrs Estée Lauder, continues to inspire us to disrupt and push boundaries. We are excited to collaborate with the world’s most popular football team on this first-of-its-kind partnership, and to expand Estée Lauder’s reach to new audiences of male consumers in an unexpected and ground-breaking way,” said Justin Boxford, global brand president of Estée Lauder.

“Estée Lauder is a globally renowned and trusted brand, and we are excited to be partnering with them in China and Asia Pacific,” said Victoria Timpson, chief executive officer of alliances and partnerships for Manchester United.

“As one of the most followed sports teams in the world, we understand the importance of educating fans on a healthy lifestyle, and skincare is an integral part of that process. In the same way our athletes prepare the night before a match with regular training rituals, healthy skin also requires a consistent and effective regimen. We look forward to working with Estée Lauder in sharing the power of its advanced night repair serum and encouraging our fans to start their skincare journey with us,” Timpson said.

The news comes shortly after it was revealed that Samsung's newest brand ambassador is none other than South Korean professional footballer and forward for the premier league club Tottenham Hotspur, Son Heung-Min.
