Arsenal have confirmed on their official website, that they’ve agreed to a five-year extension to their current sponsorship deal with the airline, Emirates.
In fact, the sponsorship deal is one of the longest-running deal in the Premier League; Emirates became the Gunners’ shirt sponsor in 2006.
The latest announcement ensures that Emirates’ deal with the North London club will extend to at least 18 years.
Additionally, the extension ensures that Arsenal will fly on Emirates’ planes during pre-season tours, and Emirates will continue to have the right to create campaigns and initiatives across the globe.
The Gunners’ stadium will continue to be named the Emirates Stadium until 2028, an agreement that occurred during the extension in 2012.
The club’s chief executive, Ivan Gazidis expressed his delight at the news and revealed that the significant increase in investment provided by Emirates would help the club compete for trophies.
Despite the positive news, Arsenal fans were calling on the club to announce another deal through Twitter…
