Adgully Bureau |
Arsenal and Emirates are delighted to announce the extension of their partnership, the longest-running front-of-shirt sponsorship in Premier League history. Arsenal's partnership with the UAE’s leading flag carrier began in July 2006, and will now run until at least 2028, taking the collaboration to a minimum of 22 years. The agreement comes ahead of the Emirates Cup clash against AS Monaco providing the perfect backdrop to celebrate the record-breaking partnership at Emirates Stadium.  After 17 years of incredible moments and working together to bring global communities closer together, Emirates is woven into the fabric of Arsenal. Emirates has been ever present on the front of Arsenal's men’s, women’s, and academy team shirts, and its home in north London has featured the Emirates name since it opened in 2006.  The globally renowned airline has also taken Arsenal on many pre-season tours, helping to connect it with supporters around the world. Most recently, alongside Emirates, Arsenal launched the ‘Global Gooners’ campaign bringing friends and families together from all over the world at Emirates Stadium.  To mark this announcement, it has released a film that shines a light on those stand-out memories at Emirates Stadium that embody the strength of Arsenal and Emirates’ unity and

teamwork. 

Juliet Slot, Chief Commercial Officer, Arsenal, said: “We are incredibly proud to make history by extending our partnership with Emirates until 2028. The longevity of our special relationship is a sign of our enduring shared values, our ambition to bring our global communities together, and our commitment to building on the numerous achievements that have marked our 17-year journey to date. As we take our partnership to a minimum of 22 years together, we’re excited to move forward and we’re focused on celebrating more incredible moments with our supporters around the world.”

Sir Tim Clark, President of Emirates Airline, said: “I’m proud of the journey that Emirates and Arsenal have shared over the past 17 years. Together, we’ve celebrated triumphs and stood strong against challenges. Our partnership has been built on a shared vision of excellence and a dedication to enriching the experiences of fans around the world. Emirates is very pleased to extend and reaffirm our partnership with Arsenal. We look forward to creating even more magical moments with Arsenal; and together, unite, inspire, and make a meaningful impact on communities around the world through the beautiful game.”
