ManUFree.Net is being offered initially to fans in the UK, with an international roll-out expected during the next six months. Its aim, says finance director David Gill, is to link fans around the world and offer them a comprehensive set of online services.
Manchester United is the second English soccer club to offer Internet access, following the lead of London-based Arsenal, recently.
Users of the new service will each get five e-mail addresses, 20MB of Web space (versus only 5MB from Arsenal), and a home page that will keep them in constant touch with the round-the-year activities of the team.
UUNET, which already sponsors part of the Manchester United Web site, says it has been investing $2 million per day in its global Internet infrastructure to enable it to supply services to "world class organisations, such as Manchester United."
