🇦🇪✈️⚽ Emirates announce five-year sponsorship deal with Olympique Lyon

​International airline Emirates and Ligue 1 club Olympique Lyon have announced a five-year sponsorship deal to become the side's official main sponsor from the 2020/21 season.

The well-known Emirates "Fly Better" logo will appear on the team's training kits as well as the playing shirts for all their matches, including the French Championship and European Cup until June 2025.

According to Arabian Business, the agreement stated that Emirates will have visible branding across the Groupama Stadium and will also be seen on hospitality, ticketing and other marketing rights.

Sheikh Ahmed bin Saeed Al Maktoum, Emirates Group chairman and chief executive, said: "It has been Emirates' long-standing strategy to engage and connect with our customers across the world through sports.

"This partnership is more than just a commercial deal but also reinforces Emirates' investment and economic contribution to both the Lyon region, and France as a whole, a country where we have been present for nearly three decades.

"We are thrilled to have Olympique Lyonnais, a team that resonates with fans both locally and globally, join our prestigious football sponsorship portfolio."

Jean-Michel Aulas, president of the Olympique Lyonnais said: "The arrival of Emirates represents an incredible opportunity for our club and our city.

"We are delighted to be accompanied by a true world-class leader. Emirates embodies elegance and quality of service and is a premium brand with a proven track record in football and sports sponsorship."
