Zurich, 18 April 2006 - FIFA today announced that Emirates Airline has booked a first-class ticket into the heart of world football by signing up as a FIFA Partner from 2007 to 2014 in the product category Airline Passenger Services. This partnership, sealed by FIFA President Joseph S. Blatter and Emirates Group Chairman Sheikh Ahmed bin Saeed Al-Maktoum at a signing ceremony in Dubai, represents by far the largest sponsorship deal the airline has entered into at a value of USD 195 million and further underscores the enduring appeal of football.

EK obviously has some "spare change" in their back pocket!

What a great move, will do wonders for the brand and the awareness of the airline inthe world. I say a darn good investment!

Premiership referees already wear "Emirates" patches on their shirts.

Don't forget about Arsenal's soon to be opened Emirates Stadium and their new sponsorship deal. Chelsea is now sponsored by Samsung Mobile (I just bought their shirt).
