more than willing to do...


New Member
Hi, friends,

The sentence:
"..., managers have been more than willing to adjust team uniforms to fit the growing numbers of bigger, longer frames."

I've looked up many dictionaries but in vain. Is here "more than willing to" equal to "more willing to"? If it is, what's the meaning of "than" ?

Thank you.

    It's more like a fixed expression in English 'more than' just adds intensity, not just willing but something more...
    I'm willing to do something = I agree to do it
    I'm more than willing to do it = I'm very happy to do it
