DHL To Transport Man-U Through U.S. Tour
DHL, Manchester United’s Official Courier and Logistics Partner, will be the title sponsor of the Club’s summer tour through the United States. The tour, lasting three weeks and starting in July, is scheduled to hit Boston, Seattle, Chicago, New Jersey and Washington DC.
