Craig Dawson's own goal was the difference at Old Trafford, as Manchester United saw out a narrow but deserved win against West Ham.

Get ready for Manchester United to have a new look across its chest beginning with the 2020-21 season.

The Premier League giants announced a new principal shirt sponsorship with TeamViewer, a German-based software company. The club had been showing Chevrolet on the front of its shirts since 2014.

United’s previous shirt sponsors have been Aon, AIG, Vodafone, and Sharp Electronics since first adding companies to its shirt in 1982.

Reports claim that TeamViewer will pay over $60 million per year for the right to be on the club’s iconic red jerseys (and alternate jerseys as well, of course).

With its name on the front of the most iconic shirt in sport from the start of next season, TeamViewer will build worldwide awareness of its technology enhancing workplaces and daily lives.”

Below is a look at Manchester United’s shirt sponsorship throughout the years.
