English soccer giants Manchester United and MLILY, the club’s official mattress and pillow provider, have agreed to extend their partnership.

Since the agreement began in 2016, MLILY has been working with the Premier League club’s elite coaching staff and sports science team to create bespoke sleeping environments for each player.

United’s group managing director, Richard Arnold said: “Since our partnership began, MLILY has expanded into several new markets, as well as seeing tangible growth in its existing markets.  I am pleased that it credits some of this success to its partnership with Manchester United.

“Our partnership with MLILY has not only benefited the club and its first team but also our fans. Their mattresses and pillows have been a welcome addition to the club’s inventory and they have become an established presence throughout the club. I am delighted we will be continuing our partnership into the future.”

MLILY’s chief executive, James Ni added: “Since the international partnership, MLILY has seen profound growth across global markets. Domestically in China and amongst international markets sales have received significant boosts, and as a business our company has moved from strength to strength.

 “We are pleased to have the opportunity to extend what has been a very productive relationship with our partners at Manchester United.”

The length and value of the extension has not been disclosed.

United finished the Premier League season as runners-up to rivals Manchester City and take on Chelsea in the FA Cup final at Wembley on Saturday.
