United Airlines introduces limited-edition Wrexham AFC amenity kits and pyjamas for premium cabin travellers on long-haul international routes, celebrating the football team's promotion and global popularity.

United Airlines has unveiled new, limited-edition Wrexham AFC amenity kits and pyjamas to commemorate the football team’s recent promotion to League One and the continued success of the Emmy award-winning show “FX’s Welcome to Wrexham” on Hulu.

These exclusive items are part of United’s broader sponsorship of Wrexham AFC.

Starting June 1, travellers flying in United’s premium cabins on long-haul international routes will receive complimentary Wrexham AFC-inspired amenity kits, which include travel essentials such as an eye mask, toothbrush, and toothpaste, as well as exclusive Therabody skincare products. Additionally, United Polaris customers on flights lasting 14 hours or more will receive pyjamas designed to resemble the team’s uniforms, featuring a long-sleeve Wrexham red shirt and grey pants.

United and Wrexham AFC collaborated on the design of the amenity kits and pyjamas, drawing inspiration from the team crest, jerseys, and overall aesthetic. The offerings include:

United x Wrexham AFC Amenity Case: For United Polaris business class travellers, this reusable toiletry case features the Wrexham crest and is available in red, black, or white. It includes a top handle, wrap-around zipper, and a loop for convenient hanging.

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, easily fitting into a carry-on bag.

United x Wrexham AFC Pyjamas: Available to United Polaris business class travellers on flights 14 hours or more, the lightweight pyjama set includes a red, long-sleeve shirt with the Wrexham AFC and United logos on the front, resembling the team jersey, and grey pants with the United logo on the hip.

Inside every amenity kit, passengers will find United-exclusive Therabody hand cream, lip balm, and a cleansing towelette, along with travel essentials such as a bamboo toothbrush, toothpaste, eye mask, ear plugs, and socks. United Polaris kits also include Therabody eye serum, face spray, tissues, and a United pen.

Peter Wolkowski, Director of Onboard Product Design at United, stated, “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 its sponsorship, United is increasing access to Wrexham AFC during the club’s 2024-2025 season, its second year partnering with the team. The airline’s logo will feature on the front of the Wrexham AFC shirts during games, and United will sponsor the club’s North American summer tour, flying the teams to games and offering exclusive opportunities for MileagePlus members.
