Arsenal Welcome BT Sport To Club As Official Partner
Wed 9th Oct 2013 | Football Sponsorship
Arsenal Football Club have today welcomed BT Sport as an Official Partner.
The new partnership enables the Barclays Premier League broadcaster to promote its extensive offering of live football through Arsenal’s digital channels in the UK and Ireland.
In addition, the agreement will offer access to Arsenal’s first team players and Manager to create unique and exclusive content to support and enhance BT Sport’s Barclays Premier League coverage.
Arsenal and BT have a long standing relationship, and earlier this year Arsenal midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain was one of the key athletes featured in the national launch campaign of BT Sport.
Arsenal’s Director of Global Partnerships and Business Strategy, Vinai Venkatesham, said of the partnership: “We are delighted to welcome BT Sport to the Club as an Official Partner.
“In a short period of time they have delivered numerous innovations in sports broadcasting and we are very much looking forward to developing our relationship further to help provide an extra dimension to their coverage.”
BT’s marketing director David James said: “We are very pleased to become an official partner of Arsenal Football Club.
“We have lots of great ideas about how to make this partnership work for the club, BT Sport and our viewers. There is plenty of excitement around Arsenal this season and we are delighted to be part of that.”
