Here's the statement from Nike, which this week signaled its intention to end the company's apparel deal with Manchester United at the conclusion of next season:

Manchester United is a great club with passionate fans. We are proud to have partnered with them for the last 12 years and will continue to sponsor the club until the end of the 2014/15 season. Any partnership with a club or federation has to be mutually beneficial and the terms that were on offer for a renewed contract did not represent good value for Nike’s shareholders. We look forward to a successful final season with the club.

Enter Adidas. The apparel maker reportedly is ready to pony up 60 million British pounds ($100 million) per season for the next 10 years to put its stripes on Man U's kit. If true, the deal wou...

#sharingeconomy #regulation #running

Amid significant opposition from the hotel industry and a slew of recent subpoenas from New York state Attorney General Eric Schneiderman, Airbnb has decided to take its case to the streets. Literally. The wildly popular accomodations sharing website has struck a shrewd deal to be a sponsor of this year's New York City Marathon, in what is the most significant deal yet in a fast growing category, travel apps.

Marathon officials say that the deal will not conflict with the hotel category as Airbnb will be known as an official community hospitality partner.

“We see the Airbnb partnership not as a replacement to hotels, but rather an alternative for runners and their guests,” says NYRR spokesman Chris Weiller. “The running community is a leading community within Airbnb. That’s why ...

In an effort to move bitcoin into the mainstream, BitPay, a merchant processor of the much-hyped digital currency which just raised $30 million, has agreed to sponsor a major bowl game.
