Manchester United fans are stepping up efforts to put pressure on the club’s Glazer ownership.

Fans managed to postpone the Premier League game against Liverpool over the weekend after blocking the team bus at the hotel and gaining access to Old Trafford.

Now that the glasses remain silent, pressure is being put on the team’s multiple sponsors.

A letter was sent to the club’s sponsors announcing a fan boycott.

These include Adidas, Kohler, Cadbury, TAG Heuer and the new sponsor Team Viewer.

A copy of the letter sent to United’s business partners can be found below.

“Completely guilty of the glasses”

This move is a natural extension of the weekend protests and aims to put pressure on the glasses.

The message clearly states that United-affiliated brands are viewed as “the glaziers’ accomplices,” which have cost United at least £ 1.5 billion since it acquired the club in 2005.

As reported by The Times, TeamViewer’s ratings of TrustPilot have risen since United fans left negative feedback.

The glaziers have not yet responded to supporters since the protest. The Manchester United Supporters Trust has sent them an open letter demanding an answer to four key points by the weekend.

The hope of this final step is that if the glaziers fail to get involved or respond to fans, they will need to connect and speak to sponsors.

If companies try to get out of their contracts or decide not to renew them, it could become very expensive for the glaziers and result in their ownership of the club becoming unsustainable.

Further protests could also be planned for later in May. United have yet to confirm a new revised date for the game in Liverpool.
