Arsenal sign new £150m sponsorship deal with Emirates

Emirates has agreed to extend its sponsorship of Arsenal by a further five years in a deal that will net the Premier League club £150m.

Emirates will continue as Arsenal's shirt sponsor until 2018/2019

The £30m-a-year contract will see the airline continue as Arsenal's shirt sponsor until the end of the 2018/2019 season.

And as part of the deal Arsenal’s home ground will continue to be known as Emirates Stadium up to 2028.

Arsenal chief executive, Ivan Gazidis, said: "The original deal with Emirates was a key facilitator of our move from Highbury and this next phase of our relationship will be just as critical to keep us at the top of the game in England and Europe.

"Emirates is a world class brand and by flying to over 120 destinations across six continents has a truly global reach. This reach will play an important role in our own ambitions to further extend the depth of our following around the world."

His Highness Sheikh Ahmed bin Saeed Al Maktoum, chairman and chief executive of the airline, added: "We continue to see immeasurable value in our global sports sponsorships and our sponsorship with Arsenal is no different.

"The club has been an important enabler of the growth of our business over the last decade and we are confident this will continue as part of our extended deal.
