Emirates airline signs £100m sponsorship deal with Arsenal
Emirates stadium

General Shaikh Mohammad Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai and UAE Minister of Defence, yesterday hailed the landmark deal signed between Emirates airline and England's Arsenal football club.

"We have every reason to feel proud of this great achievement, which has hoisted our country's name high in international gatherings," he said.

Earlier yesterday, Emirates airline announced a 15-year sponsorship deal with English soccer champions Arsenal worth a staggering £100 million, the biggest ever in English football history. Emirates have also secured naming rights to Arsenal's new 60,000-seat stadium being built at a cost of £357 million.

Shaikh Mohammad said that the partnership would foster traditional friendship ties between peoples of the UAE and Britain. Stressing the importance of sport as a civilised mean of communications between nations, Shaikh Mohammad said football remains the most favourite game.

Emirates Vice Chairman and Group President Maurice Flanagan signed the agreement in London yesterday with Arsenal club Chairman Peter Wood-Hill.

The Arsenal facility, set to open in 2006, will be known as Emirates Stadium. Emirates will also sponsor the team's shirts which will incorporate the "Fly Emirates" logo, in an eight-year deal starting with the 2006-07 season.

As part of the deal, Arsenal will set up a soccer school in the UAE.

Arsenal have won the league title twice in the last three seasons.
