Zap nets Manchester City deal

FA Cup winners join company's Premiership portfolio.

Zap will be launching a special FA Cup Winners duvet design to celebrate Manchester City's recent win, as it looks to grow its football portfolio even further this year.

The company has what it describes as a 'Big 5 Premiership Portfolio', which includes Manchester United, Liverpool, Chelsea and Everton, as well as Manchester City - all with a wide range of co-ordinating products.

"We are thrilled to have Manchester City in our Premiership portfolio, which continues to perform well at retail," said Zap's sales director, Mark McDonnell. "Interest in the club is high at the moment and we are launching a Cup Winners deisgn to celebrate their recent success.

"In addition, Manchester United has just won the Premier League for the 19th time. Together with the three other major clubs - Liverpool, Chelsea and Everton - our multi-club strategy is proving to be equally successful off the pitch, with key retailers Sports Direct and Kitbag leading the way in football merchandise."

Recent additions include junior panel print duvet sets and bundle packs complete with duvet and pillow, plus football supporter's packs including duvet and pillowcase set, fleece blanket, printer velour towel and cushion.

Zap's licensing and marketing director, Andy Downie, added: "The addition of Manchester City to our portfolio is a fantastic opportunity and will only help build on our football base."
