The 10 Years United Anniversary Edition Maybank Debit Card comes with a refreshed design, and are available in limited quantities to new and existing Maybank customers.
Group CEO of Maybank’s Community Financial Services, Dato’ John Chong said that this is the first time the Maybank Manchester United Debit Card has undergone a design refresh. “In November 2011, we launched the first Maybank Manchester United Credit Card which kick started our partnership with Manchester United. In the next two years, we introduced the Maybank Manchester United Visa Debit Card and Maybank Manchester United Visa Infinite Credit Card to provide Manchester United fans with a complete range of credit and debit cards. A decade after our initial partnership was inked, we are pleased to celebrate this momentous occasion with the limited edition 10 Years United Anniversary Edition Maybank Debit Card.”
Manchester United’s Director of Partnerships, Sean Jefferson said, “We are extremely proud to be celebrating the ten-year anniversary of our partnership with Maybank. As one of our most successful and long-standing financial services partners, they have offered our loyal fans in Malaysia a whole host of innovative and engaging fan incentives, bringing them closer to the club they so passionately support.”
The refreshed limited edition Maybank Manchester United Visa Debit Card comes in a sleek, classy white cardface. Featuring three current players in midfield and forward positions – Cristiano Ronaldo, Jadon Sancho and Paul Pogba - set against the club’s famed stadium, Old Trafford, the design symbolises the power of teamwork towards a unified goal, which resembles the synergetic partnership between Maybank and Manchester United.
In conjunction with the 10th anniversary, Maybank has also launched a campaign to reward its loyal customers, and five Cardmembers with the highest spending between the start of the contest and 31 January 2022 will win an all-expenses paid trip for two to Old Trafford to watch Manchester United play a home match. Apart from this contest, Maybank Manchester United Credit Card holders can also enjoy upsized cashback of up to 10% as well as, special discounts with exclusive merchants.
B. Ravintharan, Senior Executive Vice President and Head, Cards of Maybank said that with customers moving towards cashless payment since the onset of the pandemic, coupled by the restart of the English Premier League season, the Bank has seen a 39% Year-on-Year (YOY) increase in total spending for its Manchester United card series as at 30 September 2021. “We are confident that the limited edition debit card will appeal to the club’s loyal supporters in Malaysia and will further contribute to the growth of the Maybank Manchester United card series. With the ongoing 10th anniversary campaign and the reopening of the economy, we are expecting the total spending for Maybank Manchester United card series to grow substantially next year.”
