Arsenal have extended their partnership with Emirates to continue as the club’s front-of-shirt sponsor.
The UAE airline have been a key partner of the Premier League club ever since 2006 with this fresh agreement set to run until at least 2028.
Emirates has been ever present on the front of the club’s men’s, women’s and academy team shirts as well as the club’s stadium since it opened in 2006.
Arsenal’s chief commercial officer, Juliet Slot, 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.”
