Arsenal and Emirates have been in business for 19 years
While Emirates came on as the north Londoner’s shirt sponsors in 2006, they first entered a partnership with Arsenal two years prior, in 2004. They struck a deal to hold the naming rights for the Londoner’s new stadium. The deal was renewed in 2012, allowing Emirates to hold the name for 16 more years, until 2028.
