United Airlines celebrates Wrexham’s promotion with exclusive onboard amenities

United Airlines has unveiled new, limited-edition Wrexham AFC amenity kits and pyjamas to mark the football team’s recent promotion to League One and their growing global popularity, fueled by the Emmy® award-winning show “FX’s Welcome to Wrexham” now available on Hulu.

These exclusive items are part of United’s extensive sponsorship of Wrexham AFC and will be available from 1 June to passengers flying in premium cabins on long-haul international routes.

Travellers can look forward to receiving complimentary Wrexham AFC-themed amenity kits stocked with travel essentials, including an eye mask, toothbrush and toothpaste, along with exclusive Therabody skincare products.

Additionally, United Polaris® customers on flights lasting 14 hours or longer will be treated to pyjamas designed to resemble the team’s kit, featuring a long-sleeve Wrexham red shirt and grey pyjama bottoms.

Polaris kits: a reusable toiletry case for business class passengers in Polaris

United Airlines and Wrexham AFC collaborated to design these unique amenity kits and pyjamas, taking inspiration from the team’s crest, jerseys and ‘overall aesthetic’.

Key offerings include:

  • United x Wrexham AFC Amenity Case: This reusable toiletry case, available in red, black or white, features the Wrexham crest and is equipped with a top handle, wrap-around zipper and a loop for convenient hanging. It is available to United Polaris business class travellers.
  • United x Wrexham AFC Amenity Pouch: For United Premium Plus® travellers, this slim, reusable zippered pouch also features the Wrexham crest and is available in red, black or white. It fits easily into a carry-on bag.
  • United x Wrexham AFC Pyjamas: Available to United Polaris business class travellers on flights of 14 hours or more, the lightweight pajama set includes a red, long-sleeve shirt with the Wrexham AFC and United logos on the front, designed to mimic the team shirt, along with grey pyjama bottoms featuring the United logo on the hip.

Each amenity kit includes United-exclusive Therabody hand cream, lip balm and a cleansing towelette, as well as essential travel items like a bamboo toothbrush, toothpaste, eye mask, ear plugs and socks. The United Polaris kit also contains Therabody eye serum, face spray, tissues and a United pen.

Peter Wolkowski, Director of Onboard Product Design at United, commented,

With our amenity kits, we always aim to provide customers with products that make their travel journey more comfortable as well as create one-of-a-kind keepsakes for them to enjoy well beyond their flight. Wrexham’s story is one that has been documented and celebrated these last few years, so we’re thrilled to now give United customers team-branded gear they won’t be able to find anywhere else.

As part of their ongoing partnership, United Airlines is offering fans even more access to Wrexham AFC during the club’s 2024-2025 season. United is the front-of-jersey sponsor for both the men’s and women’s teams, with the airline’s name and logo proudly displayed on the front of Wrexham AFC shirts during matches.

Furthermore, United will sponsor the club’s North American summer tour, flying the teams to their games and providing exclusive offerings to MileagePlus members.

For UK-based business travellers, these new offerings from United Airlines not only enhance the travel experience but also provide a unique connection to a rising football club with a passionate following. The partnership between United and Wrexham AFC is a testament to the airline’s commitment to supporting and celebrating global sports culture.
