“We made the Maybank – Manchester United Credit Card ideal for active and sports-oriented Filipinos as we have partnered with various sports retail stores, fitness centers and sports bars where they can enjoy discounts which is on top of the region-wide privileges offered by Maybank – Manchester United Credit Card” said Maybank Philippines, Inc.

Two major teams have come together to become a game-changer in the Philippines’ credit card landscape.
Maybank today further strengthened its partnership with Manchester United with the launch of the first international sports franchise co-branded credit card in the Philippines—the Maybank – Manchester United Credit Card powered by Visa.

Like their neighbours in Malaysia and Singapore, Maybank – Manchester United Credit Cardholders from the Philippines will enjoy 5x TreatsPoints every time the Manchester United Team wins a Premiere League Match and 10x TreatsPoints when they shop at the Manchester United Megastore Online at 10% discount.
Manchester United fanatics can also avail a 10% discount when they dine at the Red Cafe in Old Trafford Stadium and a 20% discount when they go on a tour in the Manchester United museum and stadium.

The Club has almost 22 million followers, all of who can now take advantage of all of the great products and services Maybank has to offer,” said Manchester United Group Managing Director, Richard Arnold.
“We have had tremendous success with five dual branded financial products available across Malaysia and Singapore and our fans have been able to experience unique Manchester United prizes and experiences. Collaborating with Maybank is helping us achieve our ultimate goal of engaging with Manchester United fans on a global scale,” Mr. Arnold further said.
