Zap scores with Man United

Home textile deal secured until 2014.

One of the UK's largest suppliers of licensed bedding, Zap continues to bolster its football portfolio, signing a new five-year deal to produce Manchester United home textiles.

The firm has been a Manchester United licensee since 2002, with its range now including duvets, blankets, towels, lighting, bed canopies and wall coverings amongst other items.

To mark the renewal, Zap will be rolling out a new collection of bedding and towelling including player-based product featuring Cristiano Ronaldo, Wayne Rooney and Carlos Tevez.

"Manchester United has been a hugely successful licence for Zap and we are delighted to be able to strengthen our relationship further," commented Andy Downie, Zap's licensing and marketing director. "This long-term deal reflects our continued commitment to licensing and football."

Zap produces bedding for a number of other big name Premier League clubs including Liverpool, Arsenal and Chelsea, plus the England team.
