Melitta® is the official coffee partner of Manchester United

As the official coffee partner of Manchester United, Melitta® will from now on serve unique Melitta® coffee to the players, employees, fans and guests of the English record-holding champions football club. A central aspect of the partnership is a tailor-made complete catering solution for all relevant areas and buildings at the traditional club from Melitta Professional Coffee Solutions.

In particular, at Old Trafford, Manchester United’s home ground, over 60 bean to cup fully automatic and filter coffee machines – most notably the Melitta® Cafina® XT6 and XT8 – have been set up within the large hospitality and catering areas. On match days they will serve 7,000 VIP guests before, during and after games with Melitta coffee specialities under really competitive conditions.

In the completely redesigned “RED CAFÉ supported by Melitta®”, Manchester United’s visitors will be spoiled all year round with exceptional Melitta® coffee, even when there is no game on.  Here too, the various top models from the Melitta catering coffee machine range will be kept busy producing perfectly prepared coffee specialities for around 100,000 guests a year.

The club's players and employees can also now enjoy Melitta premium quality, which Melitta Professional Coffee Solutions provides at the training ground and in the offices with the Melitta® Cafina® XT6. Whether true coffee experts such as Juan Mata and Romelu Lukaku or newcomers to the world of coffee like the English shooting star Marcus Rashford - the players have already declared Melitta® coffee to be excellent.

As well as coffee machines, Melitta Professional Coffee Solutions also supplies the traditional club with coffee, lorry loads of porcelain, accessories, and disposable and non-disposable products, demonstrating its comprehensive expertise as a specialist for professional hot beverage preparation in gastronomy. 

The reliable technical support provided by Melitta Professional Coffee Solutions 365 days a year ensures that the quality of the coffee at the "Theatre of Dreams" - as the legendary Old Trafford Stadium is known - as well as in the offices and at the club’s training ground, meet the exacting demands of the most successful football club in England.

We look forward to this partnership!
